Daria Kasatkina vs Victoria Azarenka – Match Predictions

Daria Kasatkina to Win

Kasatkina and Azarenka have met thrice before this match and it was the latter who triumphed at each time of asking. None of those matches were on grass or in the last three years. While Azarenka was knocked out early in Hertogenbosch and Berlin, Kasatkina has been in good form on the green surface, reaching the finals of Eastbourne International. With the Russian star laying waste to everyone who has laid in her path not named Madison Keys, we are backing her to triumph against Azarenka, registering her first win in the process.

2-1 to Daria Kasatkina

Despite her impressive form, Kasatkina will be prepared for war against Azarenka. The Belarusian ace has defeated her thrice with only their 2016 BJK Cup meeting needing a deciding set. Azarenka will be buoyant after her victory over Nadia Podoroska and has the ability to complicate matters for Kasatkina. Only two of Kasatkina’s fixtures have required an additional set and we believe that statistic will increase given her results against Azarenka. A 2-1 victory in favour of Kasatkina over Azarenka seems a likely outcome given the pedigree of both stars.

Daria Kasatkina vs Victoria Azarenka Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Wimbledon.

Daria Kasatkina

The world number 10 put her fourth-round exit at French Open behind her with exciting displays on grass court events. After an early exit in Berlin, she forced her path to the Eastbourne International final, where Madison Keys stopped her from adding silverware to her ranks. Using her heroics at Devonshire Park Lawn Tennis Club as a base, Kasatkina has not looked back, registering straight-sets victories over Caroline Dolehide and Jodie Burrage.

Victoria Azarenka

The troubled clay court swing of the tour saw Azarenka register a single victory on the red surface. Before entering the Championships, she had a similar record on grass. Natalija Stevanovic was her victim in Hertongenbosch and she added the scalps of Yue Yuan and Nadia Podoroska to her tally at the All-England Club. She will fancy her chances against Kasatkina given her 0-3 record against her but those fixtures are in distant memory and she does not have the form to back up her challenge.

Daria Kasatkina vs Victoria Azarenka Head to Head

Since 2016, duels between Daria Kasatkina and Victoria Azarenka have gone in one, in favour of the Belarusian star. Azarenka defeated Kastkina in the 2016 BJK Cup, while also triumphing against her in the 2019 Madrid Masters and the 2022 Italian Open.
