Jessica Pegula vs Marketa Vondrousova – Match Predictions

Jessica Pegula to Win

With the exception of Payton Stearns, all of Vondrousova’s rivals at the Championships have been higher-ranked than her. In Pegula, she comes up against a very different beast, one that is difficult to tame. Like Vondrousova, the American ace has a 6-1 record on grass in 2023 but boasts of an overall positive win-loss record of 23-17 on the surface, unlike the Czech star’s 11-12. Pegula has not been challenged by her rivals in her last three outings that saw her triumph in straight sets and we believe she will power through Vondrousova in this meeting.

2-0 to Jessica Pegula

It has been an impressive campaign from Pegula, who has not dropped a set since her opening round meeting with Laurent Davis. The world number 4 has decimated her rivals in straight sets since and Vondrousova will probably get similar treatment. The 24-year-old Czech ace was made to work hard by Marie Bouzkova in their three-set bout and Pegula is surely a step-up in competition. As they set up the foundation of their H2H rivalry, we are backing a straight-sets victory for Pegula as she ends Vondrousova’s hopes.

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

Jessica Pegula

The world number 4 has only dropped one set to reach the quarter-final stage. The fact that her only set loss came in her opening fixture at the Championships shows her dominant journey at the All England Club. As we reach the final eight, the competition is getting tough and Pegula will be reminded of her Eastbourne International quarter-final defeat to Coco Gauff. The American ace has already improved on her third-round exit last year and currently has her best result at Wimbledon.

Marketa Vondrousova

Vondrousova did not have the most extensive preparation for the third Grand Slam of the year. She only participated in the Berlin Open where she forced her way to the quarter-finals. The Czech ace has equalled it at Wimbledon and will be wary of Pegula in their first meeting on the tricky surface. She had never progressed past the second round before 2021 and like Pegula is having her moment on grass. A win will allow Vondrousova to turn her negative grasscourt record into parity but will have to overcome Pegula’s challenge.
