Beatriz Haddad Maia to Win

Fernandez is still on her way to re-imposing herself on the WTA circuit. This presents an opportunity for her to shine through her adaptable playing style and recent successes. As she recovers from setbacks earlier this season, we believe Haddad Maia has the upper hand, especially after her convincing first-round win over Magdalena Frech which demonstrated her ability to regroup and perform under pressure. Her experience in reaching the final of Toronto last year, overcoming opponents with her diverse skills, lends credibility to her chances. With a well-rounded game and the determination to seize control of rallies, Haddad Maia’s calculated approach and unwavering focus could give her the edge needed to secure victory against Fernandez.

Under 23.5 Games

Given the performance of Haddad Maia and Fernandez, the upcoming clash has the potential to conclude with a total of under 23.5 games, indicating a potentially efficient and rapid encounter. The Brazilian regained momentum on her successful return, showcasing her ability to save breakpoints against Frech, suggesting she will be a formidable challenge for Fernandez. After her third-round exit in Washington, the Canadian will be delivering with her varied playing style and tactical acumen. As the battle to assert control and dictate play, we expect to see a match that sees a limited number of games played.
