Karolina Muchova vs Marie Bouzkova – match predictions
Marie Bouzkova to win
The duo are evenly matched in their abilities leaving many wondering who will come out on top. Muchova has given a good account of her abilities, earning three-set victories over two top-15 WTA stars to reach the quarter-finals. On the other hand, Bouzkova made little work of in-form Jessica Pegula, the recently crowned Canadian Open champion. Given Bouzkova’s victory over the ever-consistent Pegula and her fighting defeat to Daria Kasatkina in Montreal, we are backing the world number 35 to triumph.
Over 20.5 Games
Bouzkova’s win over Pegula came swiftly in only 16 games. While she got time to rest, Muchova was involved in her fourth successive three-setter. The Czech ace needed 25 games to triumph against Maria Sakkari, the world number 8. While Muchova showed some signs of fatigue, Bouzkova ran through Pegula. As they meet on the centre court, we expect them to fight for each inch on the court. It will be a battle between the compatriots, with neither bowing down to the other without a fight. Based on this, we are expecting to see at least 20.5 games in this meeting.
