She followed it up by beating fourth seed Petra Martic 2-6, 7-6(3), 6-2 and booking her place in the quarter-finals.

Alycia Parks vs Maryna Zanevska prediction

Parks has already beaten two seeded players at the Lyon Open and will enter the match as the favorite to win and progress through to the final. The 22-year-old is a rising star and will fancy her chances of winning the WTA 250 tournament. However, Zanevska shouldn't be written off given that she made easy work of Zhang Shuai.


Parks' game is modeled on her strong serve and powerful groundstrokes. Her mental game will undoubtedly be put to the test but she has shown that she is capable of showing composure on the court.

Meanwhile, Zanevska has a pretty effective serve and will look to dominate her service games. The Belgian's return game has been pretty decent and it will come in handy while dealing with Parks' serve.

The American has looked in good touch lately and should be able to get the win and reach the Lyon Open final.

Pick: Parks to win in straight sets.
