Our favourite Jessica Pegula vs Daria Kasatkina predictions

Both of these two have fought hard to reach the semi-finals of this event. Pegula came through by a score of 7-6 in the deciding set against Azarenka in the quarters, and Kasatkina needed three sets to beat Cristian too. This means they might both be feeling it, and I’ve taken this, among other factors, into account to create the following predictions:

Pegula to win @ 10/21 (1.48)

I was impressed with Pegula’s resilience in the quarters against Azarenka. She played solid tennis on the clay, and since she has a 2-0 record against Kasatkina, I think these odds are worth backing. After all, she’s higher ranked and a better player than Kasatkina, not to mention the home support she receives in Charleston.

Pegula -2.5 games handicap @ 7/10 (1.70)

This match might not be super straightforward for Jessica Pegula. But I believe it will be simple enough for her to put at least 2.5 games between herself and Kasatkina. Effectively, this means a single break in each set would do the job.

Jessica Pegula vs Daria Kasatkina odds

Pegula has a 67.70% probability of victory today based on the latest odds. As for the chance of Kasatkina pulling through, this is lower at 40%.

Pegula or Kasatkina to hold their nerve and reach the title match in Charleston?

You’ve seen a few details about Jessica Pegula’s next match above, but let me switch gears now and share a quick preview for each individual.

Jessica Pegula preview

Jessica Pegula saved match points against Azarenka to set up this semi-final match against Kasatkina. She fought incredibly to pull through that game, but whether she has much left in the tank – I guess we will see this evening! That said, I’m sure she will have recovered well, and winning such a close game will make her believe she can go all the way.

Daria Kasatkina preview

Kasatkina is the number 4 seed for this tournament, as referenced above. She’s a true battler, but two of her three matches have gone the distance at the Charleston Open. This might lead to fatigue on the court later today, although Pegula had a brutal last round, too. Additionally, Kasatkina might be ranked 11 in the world, but she’s never beaten Pegula.

Pegula vs Kasatkina head to head

The head-to-head for Pegula vs Kasatkina sits at 2-0 in favour of the American. One of these wins came on clay too, which was in Rome back in 2021. She’s since destroyed Kasatkina in 2023 by a score of 6-1 6-0, so she’s a clear favourite here.
