Our favourite Barbora Krejcikova vs Daria Kasatkina – match predictions

With Krejcikova securing a confident debut win in her opening match and Kasatkina returning to the event for the first time since 2018, tennis enthusiasts can expect a showdown filled with intrigue and intensity.

Barbora Krejcikova to win @ 1/2 (1.50)

It is difficult to look beyond Barbora in this match and with good reason. The top seed has been on a good run of form and just recently reached the finals in Zhengzhou. Daria was present there and suffered a straight-set defeat to the Czech ace. With Barbora also leading their h2h battle 3-1, we are expecting her to add to her tally in this duel. Kasatkina’s poor form against WTA’s top 20 players also adds confidence as she has lost 11 of her 13 duels with players in this ilk.

Under 20.5 Games @ 87/100 (1.87)

The last time Krejcikova and Kasatkina faced off, the match finished in 15 games. That was the Russian’s last defeat and her prior loss also was a short-lived affair with Xinyu Wang ending her China Open ambitions in 18 games. Krejcikova is entering this match in the back of an 18-game win over Magda Linette and we expect her to end the match against Kasatkina in under 20.5 games, who has struggled against top 20 players.

Barbora Krejcikova preview

Barbora’s journey has been a mix of promising highs, including capturing her maiden WTA 1000 title in Dubai, as well as runner-up finishes in Birmingham and Zhengzhou. Despite the season’s inconsistency, the event provides an opportunity for Krejcikova to further validate her resurgence. However, she has displayed a knack for converting those quarterfinal berths into finals, exemplified by her recent win in her WTA Elite Trophy debut.

Daria Kasatkina preview

Kasatkina’s 2023 campaign has been marked by consistency as she consistently reached the quarterfinals or better in various tournaments, although she hasn’t clinched a title. Notable performances include reaching the finals in Eastbourne and Adelaide. Her competitive spirit is evident, with third or fourth-round finishes in prestigious events like Wimbledon, Roland-Garros, and the US Open.
