Anna Kalinskaya will butt heads with Ons Jabeur in the Charleston Open quarter-finals. Getting rid of second seed Jabeur will be a tough ask for the WTA 70th-ranked but she will back herself after overcoming Viktoria Azarenka in the previous round.

Anna Kalinskaya vs Ons Jabeur – Match Predictions
Anna Kalinskaya To Win
It has been a tough year for Jabeur, who has been knocked out of competitive play in the early exchanges of competitions. On the other hand, Kalinskaya continues to impress. She had long runs in the Sunshine Double and has beaten Anhelina Kalinina and Victoria Azarenka to reach this far. Kalinskaya has shown her endurance against higher-ranked rivals and should get the job done on the green clay court.
2-1 to Anna Kalinskaya
Kalinskaya forced her way into the quarterfinals after a straight-sets victory over Azarenka. She converted three of the six breakpoints that came her way, saving four from the same total on her serve. Jabeur toiled against Dolehide in the previous round, losing her serve thrice but did well to convert five of the breakpoints. With both tennis aces playing at a high level, we expect a long night on the court, one that stretches into three sets and concludes in favour of the Russian.
Anna Kalinskaya vs Ons Jabeur Preview
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in this tournament.
The grind continues for Kalinskaya, who is participating in her ninth tournament of the 2023 WTA circuit. She has had starts in competition play but has been unable to force her way into meaningful games to get into silverware contention. She has impressed at the Family Circle Tennis Center, making little work of Anhelina Kalinina, Alize Cornet and Victoria Azarenka. With lady luck smiling, her list might include the current WTA ranked five star.
While journeywoman Kalinskaya has been everywhere where she could be, Ons Jabeur has not been that active. She arrived in California for the Indian Wells after a two-month gap. She found it difficult to get going after her ousting in the Australian Open semi-finals, getting knocked out of Indian Wells in round two and on the first hurdle in Miami. She was the losing finalist in Charleston Open last year and is showing the same spark that got her there last time around.
Anna Kalinskaya vs Ons Jabeur Head to Head
This is the second meeting between Anna Kalinskaya and Ons Jabeur. The duo met in the 2021 edition of the Indian Wells, a meeting Kalinskaya will like to forget. The Russian suffered a straight sets defeat in that meeting, getting broken down twice by Jabeur at each time of asking.
