Sara Errani vs Irina-Camelia Begu – Match Predictions

2-0 to Irina-Camelia Begu

Irina-Camelia Begu is expected to secure a straight-sets victory in the upcoming match. Her exceptional record on clay courts since the start of 2022, with a 26-8 record, demonstrates her prowess on this surface. She has consistently faced higher-ranked opponents, showcasing her ability to compete against a more formidable pedigree of rivals. On the other hand, Sara Errani’s record on clay, with 32 wins and 22 losses, suggests that it is not her strongest surface. In the first round, Errani struggled, being broken four times by Teichmann, whereas Begu displayed composure and only dropped two games against Bondar. Considering Errani’s propensity for making mistakes and Begu’s elevated level of play, it is highly likely that Begu will secure a straight-sets victory.

Under 20.5 Games

In what promises to be a decisive clash, Begu and Errani are expected to produce a low-scoring affair, concluding with under 20.5 games. Begu’s recent success against Errani, winning their last two head-to-head encounters, and her impressive performance in the straight-sets victory over Bondar further strengthens the prediction. Moreover, all five of their duels have finished in two sets and only twice have needed 21 or more games to decide the fate of an encounter. Considering Begu’s recent dominance over Errani and Errani’s difficulties on clay, the match is likely to be tightly contested, but ultimately result in fewer than 20.5 games being played.
