Ekaterina Alexandrova vs Petra Kvitova – Match Predictions

Whoever wins this match will book a place in the semi-final of this year’s Miami Open. With both players setting their sights on a win, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Petra Kvitova to Win

Granted, Ekaterina Alexandrova is enjoying her best run of the year at this tournament. However, we haven’t been very impressed by the Russian player’s form in recent weeks. Alexandrova had four losses in five matches before this year’s Miami Open; as a matter of fact, the last time she won more than three consecutive matches was in October last year.

On the other hand, Petra Kvitova has been more consistent, having won eight of her last 10 singles matches. Bearing in mind that she won the only other encounter between these players in straight sets, we are fairly confident that Kvitova will win this match.

Over 20.5 Total Games

To be fair, Petra Kvitova won all of her matches in this tournament in straight sets. However, those matches have mostly featured very close sets. As a matter of fact, there was at least one tie-break in Kvitova’s last two matches, and five of her last six singles matches went comfortably over 20.5 games. For this reason, we are taking the over option here.

Let’s take a look at Ekaterina Alexandrova and Petra Kvitova’s performances in this tournament.

Ekaterina Alexandrova

Ekaterina Alexandrova faced Bianca Andreescu in the previous round of this tournament; and after winning the first set, her opponent withdrew due to a leg injury. The Russian player will be eyeing a place in the semi-final as she faces Petra Kvitova.

Petra Kvitova

Former World number 2 Petra Kvitova has enjoyed a good run in this tournament. She defeated Linda Noskova, Donna Vekic and Varvara Gracheva without dropping a set. Kvitova will look to maintain her 100 percent sets record in this competition; it’ll be interesting to see how she matches up against her Russian opponent.
