Aryna Sabalenka vs Veronika Kudermetova – Match Predictions

Under 20.5 Games

Sabalenka made little work of Vera Zvonareva, winning 6-3 and 6-2. A similar number of games were seen in Kudermetova’s match against Qinwen Zheng, winning in straight sets with 6-4 and 6-2. As both players enter this meeting, it looks likely that it will be a similar short affair, as was the case in their prior meeting. Based on this, we are backing an Under 20.5 Games conclusion to this match.

2-0 to Aryna Sabalenka

Kudermetova upset Sabalenka in the first round of the Berlin Open 2022. She will hope for a similar result but the Belarusian is a much-improved player. Sabalenka has defeated Kudermetova twice prior to that defeat and has the form as well as quality to force that issue as well. Those victories came in straight sets, as has been the case of all of Sabalenka’s last six victories. Based on this, we are anticipating a straight sets victory for the world number 2.

Aryna Sabalenka vs Veronika Kudermetova Preview

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

Aryna Sabalenka

Sabalenka’s clay court campaign ended in heartache as she lost to Karolina Muchova in the semi-finals. She has started the grass court swing in full furore, defeating Zvonareva 6-3 and 6-2. She sent down five aces against the returning Zvonareva, while also impressing with winning 90% of her 1st serve points. She will be ready for Kudermetova and have a score to settle as the Russian defeated her in the first round of last year’s edition.

Veronika Kudermetova

Kudermetova put her French Open first-round exit behind with a run to the final of the Hertogenbosch. She came second to Ekaterina Alexandrova in the three-set affair and would be ruing the mistakes made in the third set tiebreaker. She started Berlin Open on the right foot, defeating Zheng in straight sets. The match finished in 86 minutes and would have taken lesser time had Kudermetova earned more than 36% of her 2nd serve points.

Aryna Sabalenka vs Veronika Kudermetova Head to Head
