Emma Navarro vs Ekaterina Alexandrova – Match Predictions

2-0 to Ekaterina Alexandrova

Alexandrova enters this match with a clear advantage over Navarro. With her track record on grass and a remarkable 16 wins out of 20 matches on this surface since 2021, the Russian possesses the experience and expertise to dictate the proceedings. Navarro is inexperienced on the surface but will be confident after reaching the semi-finals at Bad Homburg. However, she has yet to win against a top 60-ranked player, going 0-10 in her duels. On the other hand, Alexandrova has only failed to go past the first round in one of her 13 attempts at a Grand Slam event. Given the Russian’s form and pedigree, we are backing her to dominate the match and emerge victorious in straight sets.

Under 20.5 Games

In Navarro’s recent defeat to Katerina Siniakova, she was easily dismantled by the 32-ranked star, losing 6-2 and 6-2. Alexandrova will be a far tougher animal to tame, especially given her recent form. She triumphed in Hertogenbosch, overcoming Veronika Kudermetova and also reached the semi-finals in Berlin. Her victory over Coco Gauff was impressive where she dismantled the American 6-4 and 6-0. Based on this, we are backing a swift conclusion to this meeting, with a victor found under 20.5 games.
