Jelena Ostapenko vs Emma Raducanu Prediction and Odds: WTA Stuttgart 2023

Jelena Ostapenko vs Emma Raducanu – Match Predictions

Emma Raducanu To Win

Raducanu did not play in the Billie Jean King Cup for Team Britain as transitioning to the clay court WTA Stuttgart would have been difficult. It seems she has the required fitness for the event and we are backing her to triumph. The US Open winner was leading in her only duel with Ostapenko but saw it wither out under the weight of injury. She has more than progress but also revenge to play for and should see out the duel.

2-1 to Emma Raducanu

The scoreboard in their last duel read 1-1 before Raducanu had to withdraw. We are expecting the match to finish in favour of Raducanu but expect to see a three-set affair again. The British ace is only returning from injury now and has cobwebs. While Ostapenko is struggling, she does shave off a set in her outings with four of her last six matches concluding in three sets.

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

Jelena Ostapenko

Ostapenko has been active in 2023 but matches have not gone in her favour. She only has a dozen wins to show for from her eight tournament entries. With four of these coming in the Australian Open, it becomes a worse reading. However, she will fancy her chances against Raducanu, who she has already beaten when the Brit was struggling for fitness.

Emma Raducanu

There are more than six months to Raducanu’s 21st birthday but the Britsh ace has already gone through years worth of injuries. She is now returning from a wrist injury that kept her out of the Charleston Open. Preferring the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix over Team Britain shows her wanting to perform at the event sponsored by one of her biggest sponsors.
