Our favourite Beatriz Haddad Maia vs Barbora Krejcikova predictions
Both players needed this tournament to bounce back and regain their confidence and they are doing well so far. However, only one of them will advance to the semifinals and keep the chance to win the tournament.
Barbora Krejcikova to win @ 7/10 (1.70)
There is no doubt that Krejcikova is the better overall player even though Haddad Maia’s improvement in the past couple of seasons is impressive. Krejcdikova played only two sets to get to this match while the Brazilian needed six. having that in mind and the fact that Haddad Maia never won a set against Krejcikova, choosing the player from the Czech Republic to win seems like a logical choice.
Over 21.5 games @ 17/20 (1.85)
Haddad Maia has yet to win a set against Krejcikova and this may be the match when she will finally do so. The Brazilian played over the total margin in her last 6 matches and there is no reason to stop the run now.
