Bernarda Pera vs Veronika Kudermetova – match predictions

In the grand amphitheatre of Flushing Meadows, their meeting encapsulates the spirit of tennis—a fusion of history, determination, and the pursuit of victory.

2-0 to Veronika Kudermetova @ 7/10 (1.70)

As she enters the grand stage, Kudermetova seeks to transform her season’s narrative and reclaim her stride. She has been relatively inactive on the hard court circuit but will fancy her chances against Pera, who is on a four-match losing streak. The Russian ace also triumphed in their last meeting and leads their h2h encounters 3-2 against Pera. As they meet in the first round, we expect her to claim a straight-set victory over the struggling American star.

Under 20.5 Games @ 17/20 (1.85)

Two of the last three matches between Pera and Kudermetova finished in straight sets. The 2-0 results have seen 14 and 17 games respectively, and the current form of the duo hints at more of the same. The duo’s recent 2-0 defeats did not see 20.5 games and we believe another short encounter will be on the cards as they meet in Flushing Meadows.

Bernarda Pera preview

Pera’s path through the season has been marked by peaks and valleys, emblematic of the unpredictable nature of tennis. Achieving her career-best ranking of 27 earlier this year was followed by a dip in form, characterized by first-round exits and title-defence failures. Her best was in the quarter-finals at Hobart, Strasbourg and Hamburg. As she steps into the US Open arena, Pera’s resilience and determination take centre stage, underscoring her quest to regain her stride and make a statement on the grand stage.

Veronika Kudermetova preview

Kudermetova’s season has been a tapestry of achievements and unfulfilled aspirations. She had commendable final appearances in Hertogenbosch and semifinals at Adelaide, Doha, Madrid and Rome. However, her silverware expectations for the year have yet to be met. The US Open arrives amidst a backdrop of mixed outcomes—only two wins from three majors and a recent run of setbacks. A first-round loss in Cincinnati followed by a second-round exit in Cleveland underscores the challenges she faces.

Pera vs Kudermetova head to head

Kudermetova is leading 3-2 in their head-to-head history and their prior encounters can carry weight. Their last meeting was nearly two and a half years ago in Istanbul where the Russian edged ahead in a final-set tiebreak.
