Our favourite Jelena Ostapenko vs Liudmila Samsonova – match predictions

The China Open quarterfinals promise fireworks as Jelena Ostapenko, fresh off a convincing victory against Jessica Pegula. She faces off against the resilient Liudmila Samsonova, who’s fought her way past Marta Kostyuk to this stage.

Jelena Ostapenko to win @ 1/1 (2.00)

Ostapenko and Samsonova have met each other once in 2023 with the Russian ace triumphing in straight sets on Madrid’s clay courts. Althought the h2h stats are skewed in favour of Jelena, but those meetings were two years back despite being on hard courts. However, after making little work of the ever consistent Pegula, those statistics cannot be discounted and we believe the Latvian ace should book a place in the semi-finals at Samsonova’s expense.

2-0 to Jelena Ostapenko @ 2/1 (3.00)

Eva Lys highlighted that fact the Penko was not at her usual best. However, after Noskova’s withdrawal, she came up to speed and dispatched off Pegula with ease. She will surely have the upper hand against Samsonova, who had to work hard for her 2-1 victory over Kostyuk. Each of their three duels have been straight set affairs and given Ostapenko’s tendency to surprise, we expect her to get the job done without needing a deciding set.
