Jessica Pegula to Win in Straight Sets
Marta Kostyuk faced Olivia Gadecki and Amanda Anisimova in the previous two rounds of this tournament, beating both in straight sets. Compared to those two however, Jessica Pegula is a relatively bigger fish to fry. The World number 3 has obliterated everything on her path; she’s won 11 matches in a row across singles, doubles and mixed doubles. What’s more? Pegula didn’t drop a set in her last six singles matches. Although Kostyuk will likely cause a few problems for Pegula, the American should be able to finish this in straight sets.
Jessica Pegula -4.5 Games
Jessica Pegula is currently on a six match winning streak in singles, this includes a 6-2, 6-2 victory over World number 1 Iga Swiatek. The 28 year old has simply been unstoppable, as she covered the spread in five of those matches. That said, we believe Pegula can cover -4.5 games here.

Jessica Pegula extended her winning run with a straight sets victory over Aliaksandra Sasnovich in her previous match. The American has now won six consecutive matches, and 12 sets in a row. Pegula will fancy her chances of extending that streak against Marta Kostyuk.
Just like her opponent, Marta Kostyuk is yet to surrender a set in this competition. The 20 year old hasn’t been very consistent lately; as she came into this tournament on the back of two consecutive losses. On that note, it’ll be interesting to see how she matches up against the World number 3.
