Jessica Pegula vs Lesia Tsurenko – Match Predictions
With both players setting their sights on a place in the quarter-final, these are our predictions and tips for this match
Jessica Pegula to Win in Straight Sets
We would like to point out that Lesia Tsurenko is coming off a three-setter against Ana Bogdan, a match that lasted for three hours and 40 minutes. It may interest you to know that the deciding set of that match lasted for almost two hours, breaking the record for longest set in women’s grand slam history.
Keeping that in mind, there are some fatigue concerns for the Ukrainian player; as she could barely move at the end of her previous match. On the other hand, Jessica Pegula is coming off back-to-back straight sets victories, and none of those matches lasted up to 75 minutes. Given that the American is well-rested, we are backing her to take this in straight sets.
Less Than 22 Total Games
Next, let’s take a look at the over/under line for our second Jessica Pegula vs Lesia Tsurenko prediction. It’s fair to point out that these players have been involved in a lot of two-setters recently; and because of that, most of their matches tend to go under 21 games. As a matter of fact, seven of Pegula’s last nine, and 10 of Lesia Tsurenko’s last 10 matches featured less than 21 games. On that note, we are taking the under 21.5 games option.
