Tennis acca tips: Chinese swing and Guadalajara picks

Planet Sport offers picks from Chengdu, Zhuhai, Guangzhou and Guadalajara to help you put together your tennis accumulator on Wednesday.

The ATP's Chinese swing is underway with dual events in Chengdu and Zhuhai this week.

Meanwhile, the WTA is split between Guadalajara and Guangzhou.

Here, we make picks for a handful of matches on Wednesday, 20 September.

ATP Chengdu: Taro Daniel vs Aleksandar Vukic | Pick: Daniel

ATP Chengdu: Roman Safiullin vs Brandon Nakashima | Pick: Nakashima

ATP Zhuhai: Lloyd George Harris vs Jiri Vesely | Pick: Harris

ATP Zhuhai: Yoshihito Nishioka vs Terence Atmane | Pick: Nishioka

WTA Guangzhou: Greet Minnen vs Harriet Dart | Pick: Dart

WTA Guangzhou: Yulia Putintseva vs Clara Tauson | Pick: Putintseva

WTA Guadalajara: Storm Hunter vs Maria Sakkari | Pick: Sakkari

WTA Guadalajara: Madison Keys vs Emma Navarro | Pick: Keys

ATP Chengdu: Taro Daniel vs Aleksandar Vukic

Taro Daniel has been climbing back up the rankings of late and will be out to knock off Aleksandar Vukic in Chengdu.

Both players are back in action for the first time since their first round exits from the US Open.

Daniel shades Vukic for time on court in the last few weeks and that could make all the difference.

Vukic has slumped a little since his run to the Atlanta final where he lost to Taylor Fritz.

ATP Chengdu: Roman Safiullin vs Brandon Nakashima

Brandon Nakashima is enduring a tough season, although the American can turn things around in Chengdu.

Safiullin is a consistent campaigner, but Nakashima should have the skills to best him.

These players have not met before on the ATP Tour or at any lower levels.

Nakashima and Safiullin share the same career-high ranking an indicator of how close this clash is as a matchup.

ATP Zhuhai: Lloyd Harris vs Jiri Vesely

Lloyd Harris could serve his way beyond Jiri Vesely if his radar is functioning correctly.

Harris has beaten Vesely in both of their previous meetings with the most recent of those coming in June at Mallorca.

Vesely has struggled for form and fitness this term and has dropped to 300 in the world.

Harris is charging back up the rankings after a long time out with a wrist injury.

ATP Zhuhai: Yoshihito Nishioka vs Terence Atmane

Japan's Yoshihito Nishioka takes on rising prospect Terence Atmane in Zhuhai on Wednesday.

Atmane has been more active lately thanks to his Challenger Tour participation.

Nishioka instead took a break after the US Open and will start the Asian Swing refreshed.

This will be the first match between these players at any level.

WTA Guangzhou: Greetje Minnen vs Harriet Dart

Greetje Minnen may hold the edge in ranking over Harriet Dart but the Brit owns a head-to-head win in their only previous meeting.

Dart had to qualify to reach the main draw in Guangzhou but hasn't dropped a set in her three matches at the Nansha International Tennis Center.

Minnen put away Diane Parry with minimum fuss as well but Dart had the tougher first round assignment.

Dart fought her way past big-serving German Jule Niemeier in the first round which suggests she should have enough to get beyond Minnen.

WTA Guangzhou: Yulia Putintseva vs Clara Tauson

Yulia Putintseva and Clara Tauson also secured impressive first round wins in Guangzhou.

Tauson had to fight hard to overcome Czech teenager Fruhvitova.

Putintseva quickly put away home hope Xiaodi You in the first round and benefits from having been in action in Osaka last week as well where she was a quarterfinalist.

Tauson has a big future in the game but right now Putintseva looks to have her matched.

WTA Guadalajara: Storm Hunter vs Maria Sakkari

Maria Sakkari has enjoyed events in Mexico and gets a lot of support in Guadalajara.

Sakkari kicks off her Guadalajara campaign against American journeywoman Storm Hunter.

Despite turning professional in the same year, 2012, Sakkari and Hunter have never shared a court on the WTA Tour.

Hunter has already played, but Sakkari enjoyed a first round bye and will be fresher.

WTA Guadalajara: Madison Keys vs Emma Navarro

Madison Keys takes on Emma Navarro in an intriguing all-American clash at the WTA 1000 event.

Both players are in action for the first time since a semi-final loss, with Keys having made the last four at the US Open while Navarro was beaten at that stage in San Diego.

If Keys can find her best form from recent weeks straight away, she should get beyond Navarro.

The only concern for Keys will be that rust might present an opening for a very good player in Navarro.
