Barbora Krejcikova vs Madison Keys – Match Predictions
The world number 21 Keys and the world number 13 Krejcikova go head-to-head in round three. Our Miami Open predictions are in, so let’s see who comes out on top!
Total Sets – 2
Krejcikova has shown some very good form lately and she deservedly enters this game as the favourite. Less than a month ago the Czech beat all of the top 3 in the world in succession Sabalenka-Pegula-Swiatek to lift the title in Dubai. Keys on the other hand continues to show a lack of consistency and it had been nearly a year since she beat a top-15 opponent.
With Krejcikova’s odds for the win low, we opted to go for the slightly better odds that there will be only 2 sets in this match. We think if the Czech wins set 1 there will be no stopping her and she will wrap things up quickly. At the same time, Krejcikova has been known in the past the crumble psychologically when she loses the opener so this tip covers this eventuality too.
Set 1 After 2 Games – 1-1
With both players possessing solid serves we predict that after just 2 games the result will be 1-1. Both Krejcikova and Keys had been able to hold their opening serves in 6 of their last 7 matches.
Barbora Krejcikova vs Madison Keys Preview
We’ve made some great predictions, so next, let’s look at the two players in more detail and their most recent form.
Krejcikova not only win the title in Dubai after going on a rampage and beating the top 3 ladies in succession, but she also reached the quarterfinals of 2 other tournaments this calendar year and is fresh of making it to round 4 at Indian Wells.
In her first match in Miami Krejcikova made a quick job of the dangerous Sasnovich and beat her comfortably 6-3, 6-2.
Keys has been having a bad year so far. Her only decent run was to the quarterfinals in Dubai. Most recently she retired in her first match at Indian Wells after losing the opening set badly. Clearly, the American is struggling with some injury as her left leg was heavily strapped during her first match in Miami. She was far from convincing in her 6-4, 6-4 win against the wild card Montgomery. Keys failed to shorten the rallies even in that match and she will struggle if she can’t move well on the court against a player like Krejcikova.
Krejcikova vs Keys Head to Head
The only previous match between the two was at the 2022 Australian Open when Keys stunned the 4th seed Krejcikova and beat her comfortably in straight sets.
