Maria Sakkari to Win in Straight Sets

We would like to point out that Diana Shnaider doesn’t have a lot of experience on the WTA Tour. As a matter of fact, she was playing the Australian Open juniors by this time last year, where she reached the quarterfinals. In contrast, Maria Sakkari is a top 10 player with a lot of experience on the WTA Tour. Furthermore, Sakkari has seven wins in her last eight matches across singles and mixed doubles. Considering her opponent’s lack of experience, we think Sakkari will take this in straight sets.

Diana Shnaider +5.5 Games

Although we are predicting a straight sets victory for Maria Sakkari, we believe this match will be closer than the odds suggest. Diana Shnaider has put up some impressive results over the past few days; she has won four in a row, in straight sets, including the qualifying rounds. That said, Shnaider should keep this match close enough to cover +5.5 games.
