Our favourite Anhelina Kalinina vs Barbora Krejcikova predictions
Both players are going through a difficult period and their confidence is not on high level.
Barbora Krejcikova to win @ 11/20 (1.55)
Krejcikova is far from the shape she used to be when she was second in the world but there is no doubt that the top-class quality is still there. She has not won a match since the opening round at Wimbledon and it is about time for her to end the losing streak. Kalinina has a solid season but she has never defeated Krejcikova and that will still be the case after this match as well.
Over 21.5 games @ 17/20 (1.85)
Both players are not in their best form and that will probably bring many ups and downs on both sides in this match. They really need this win to bounce back and this will be a big fight between two players in their prime. Krejcikova is the better one, but Kalinina has proven many times that she can be a difficult opponent. This will be a long match with both players having their moments and the match will go over 21.5 games in total.
