Italian Open 2023 Doubles Predictions

Gauff/Pegula vs Hunter/Mertens prediction: Gauff/Pegula to Win

Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula have now reached the final three Masters 1000 tournaments in a row. In Miami Open they won the title, they couldn’t repeat in Madrid Open, so they will try to improve their last performance. Since the two American players have teamed up, they have been among the best on the circuit. We think the American duo will overcome Hunter and Mertens as they did in Miami where they won 7-6 5-7 2-10.

In the last edition of the Italian Open Doubles, we saw the Croatian duo of Nikola Mektić and Mate Pavić win the title after defeating the solid team of American John Isner and Argentine Diego Schwartzman, who played only that one tournament together.

We expect the Croatian players to have a good performance to defend their title, however, they will have to take into account the following teams that also start as favourites.

Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic

The Croatian duo have been very active this season. Since their triumph in Italian Open Double, they have played in many finals and won many titles. Mektic and Pavic also won in Geneva, London, Eastbourne, Astana, and Auckland.

It should be noted that they also played in the finals of Wimbledon and the ATP Finals. This year they only won in Auckland, in many events they have been knocked out very early. Although in recent events, they have not been so lucky, we expect a better performance in this tournament, as they will be the defending champions.

Wesley Koolhof and Neal Skupski

The Dutch-British duo have been the favourites in every tournament this season. As the number 1 in the ATP doubles ranking, they are the main seeds in every event. However, this year they have not achieved the expected results. Although they have disputed several finals such as Indian Wells or Barcelona Open, they have not won any title.

Their last participation was at the Madrid Open, where they reached the quarter-finals. In the last edition of the Italian Open 2023 Doubles, Koolhof, and Skupski were defeated by those who would later become champions, Mektic and Pavic.

Italian Open Women Doubles Contenders

Last year we saw Veronika Kudermetova and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova dethrone then-defending champions Giuliana Olmos and partner Gabriela Dabrowski at the Italian Open Womens Doubles Finals.

Since then we have seen Kudemertova with different partners including Elise Mertens, Anastasia Potapova, and most recently teamed up with Liudmila Smsonova. Pavlyuchenkova, meanwhile, teamed up with Elena Rybakina after the Rome title. Although each will defend the title with different partners, they will be among the favourites, but there are other main seeds that have stood out in the first third of the season.

Beatriz Haddad Maia and Victoria Azarenka

Usually, tennis players who are used to participate in doubles are constantly changing partners in an attempt to form a solid duo with which they can win many matches and titles.

Sometimes it is difficult for a new duo to succeed in their first tournaments, but Haddad Maia and Azarenka were an exception and won the first event in which they participated. After winning. After becoming the winners of the Mutua Madrid Open, this duo became one of the favourites for the Italian Open Doubles.

Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula

The American duo has been one of the most solid performers over the course of this season. They both started by reaching the semi-finals at the Australian Open. They went on to win a pair of titles in Doha and Miami.

At the Mutua Madrid Open, they tried to repeat their success but fell in the final. With a record of 19 wins and 4 losses, Coca Gauff and Jessica Pegula have one of the best statistics of the season, so we will keep an eye on their performance at the Rome Masters Doubles.

Lyudmyla Kichenok and Jelena Ostapenko

This duo was very successful in the previous season, in which they won important titles such as Wimbledon and Cincinnati, as well as playing many finals. This season they have not won their first title, but they have had good performances, that’s why they are at the top of the ranking and once again they are favourites to win the title.

The last time they were in action was in the first round of the Madrid Open, where they were defeated as they were in Stuttgart. So far, they have not performed well on clay.

Desirae Krawczyk and Demi Schuurs

The duo of American Krawczyk and Dutchwoman Schuurs hope to turn the page on their first-round defeat at the Madrid Open. They had previously won their first title of the year. Previously they had performed well, but very few of them had reached the finals.

Last year they had already won several titles in this part of the year. Due to these facts, the duo are among the favourites to make it, in fact, they are seed 3. We expect to see the best Krawczyk and Schuurs to put on a real show in every round they enter.
