Bernarda Pera vs Donna Vekic – Match Predictions
Donna Vekic to win
Vekic has never beaten Pera but will not miss this opportunity to do that. The Croatian has an excellent record this season despite the fact that most of her matches were on a hard surface. Both players move well on the court and Vekic is the one who has a stronger forehand. The Croatian had a good run at the Australian Open and already won a title this year, so she has confidence which will lead her to the next round.
First set 9-10 games
This will be a difficult match with both players attacking from the start. There is no major difference between them so the opener can easily go both ways. However, no player will be dominant at the beginning of the match and the first set will finish with 9 or 10 games in total.
Bernarda Pera vs Donna Vekic Preview
Both players are not that far in the rankings, are of close age, and have played before. This means that anything is possible but still, Vekic is the favorite to win.
Pera is currently 36th in the rankings and her career high was at no. 32. The 28-year-old is 14-14 for the season and 7-6 on clay. In the opening round of Roland Garros, she defeated Anett Kontaveit in straight sets. This is the third time in her career to reach the second round in Paris. Pera’s best result this season came in Hobart where she reached the quarterfinal losing to Elisabetta Cocciaretto.
Vekic is currently 22nd in the WTA rankings, three places lower than her career high. The Croatian is 21-7 for the season and 4-3 on clay. In the opening round of Roland Garros, she defeated Dayana Yastremska 6-2, 7-5. Her best result so far at the French Open was the round of 16 back in 2019. This year, Dokic won the tournament in Monterrey defeating Caroline Garcia in the final. She also reached the quarterfinals at the Australian Open losing to Aryna Sabalenka.
