Kateryna Baindl vs Jelena Ostapenko – Match Prediction

This match-up is likely to be different from the three previous head-to-head encounters. We do our own analysis to offer the right betting tips and other tennis predictions at the Australian Open 2023.

Ostapenko to Win 2-0

This duel will be very different from the previous h2h, mainly because Ostapenko is no longer a teenager and has achieved great feats. Baindl’s highest ranking was 62nd, however, her poor results have her currently ranked 95th.

Ostapenko has done better than her opponent, as her best ranking in the WTA rankings is number 5, and she is currently ranked 17. We predict that Kateryna will be impressed by Jelena’s current form, and we expect the match to end 2-0.

Under 20.5 Total Games  

In the first round, Jelena faced Dayana Yastremska, a Ukrainian player like Baindl, who is also ranked similarly in the WTA rankings. Ostapenko’s first match ended in 18 sets.

Considering the current level of both players, we expect Jelena Ostapenko to have a great performance and need just over an hour and less than 20.5 games to win her next match.

Once we explained our Australian Open Predictions and odds, let’s take a look at the preview Australian Open results of each player. 

Kateryna Baindl 

The Ukrainian tennis player finally broke her bad streak, as never her Australian Open results ended in the first round. But in this edition of the Australian Grand Slam, Kateryna qualified for the third round after defeating Kamila Rakhimova and Catherine McNally.

Jelena Ostapenko

At the moment, the Latvian tennis player has not faced top opponents. In the first round, she took out Dayana Yastremska in straight sets. While in the second, the Hungarian player Anna Bondar complicated Ostapenko’s task a bit by winning the second set, but the Latvian finally won the last set 6-0.

Baindl vs Ostapenko Head to Head

After three h2h, Baindl dominates the series 3-0 and barely lost a set to Ostapenko. However, the first of these meetings was in 2014 when Jelena was just 15 years old, and the last one was at Roland Garros in 2018.
