Our favourite Anastasia Potapova vs Sofia Kenin predictions
Both players had early exits at the US Open and are trying to bounce back in San Diego.
Anastasia Potapova to win @ 7/10 (1.70)
Potapova is getting closer to her highest rankings ever and maybe this tournament can launch her even in the top 20 in the WTA rankings. Her confidence is sky-high after an impressive win against the Wimbledon runner-up, Ons Jabeur. Sofia Kenin is far from her best form even though he had a solid season on grass. The American will be competitive in this match but Potapova is much better at the moment and will move on to the semis.
Over 21.5 games @ 17/20 (1.85)
Potapova played over in total games in four of her last five matches. This will be her first encounter with Kenin and both players will have to adapt to each other’s style of play. The Russian is the favorite in this match but Kenin will be able to hold on and this match will go way over 21.5 games in total.
