Alycia Parks vs Leylah Fernandez – Match Predictions

Alycia Parks to Win

Since her round two ousting from the French Open, Leylah has taken time off from the WTA tour. She will have to make a swift change from clay to grass, a task that can be daunting. Parks will attest to it as she is on a four-match losing streak. However, as the American takes on the challenge of an out-of-action Fernandez and after accruing some time on the grass court, we are backing her to triumph in this meeting.

Under 22.5 Games

Irrespective of the eventual fate of the match, Fernandez’s last three matches have been long drawn affairs, seeing three sets to find a victor. The last ten fixtures with Parks in the match equation have been straight-set affairs. We do not see the latter trend changing and it will be the likely outcome given her superiority. With an Under 22.5 Games selection, we cover the bases and should see it being realized in this first round duel.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Birmingham Open.

Alycia Parks

The American struggled on the clay court swing of the tour, registering a paltry five wins across seven tournament entries. This form has followed her on the grass turn of the tour, where she has tasted defeat in both the Nottingham and Birmingham Open. While in the other events, she was up against higher-ranked rivals, in Fernandez she is the higher-ranked rival and will fancy her chances to claim a long waited win.

Leylah Fernandez

Like Parks, Fernandez has struggled to impose herself on the tour in recent outings. She was involved in three three-set affairs, triumphing just once in the period. The exhaustion took its toll and she had to take a break after her French Open ousting. Her form on grass court is nothing to write home about, registering just two wins on the surface since 2018.
