Liudmila Samsonova vs Danielle Collins – Match Predictions

Liudmila Samsonova to Win

Both Samsonova and Collins will be eager to secure their maiden victory in this fresh chapter of their rivalry, adding an element of excitement to their upcoming showdown on the hard courts. While the American has struggled with injuries and is on the journey to recapture her form, Samsonova’s quarter-final appearances in Rosmalen and Bad Homburg put her in better stead in Washington. Based on her rivals’ relative inactivity and her recent good form on the faster grass events, we are backing Samsonova to win this match.

2-1 to Liudmila Samsonova

Collins has lost six of her last eight matches. In the same period, Samosnova’s result has been better at 4-4 but nothing to write home about. Interestingly, both stars have lost three of their last four outings on hard court surfaces. Two of Samsonova’s last four victories have required a deciding set and we believe, given her struggles on the hard court earlier in the year, it will be a similar outcome this time around.

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

Liudmila Samsonova

Samsonova enters the Citi Open after a mixed performance in recent tournaments. While she achieved quarterfinal appearances in Rosmalen and Bad Homburg, her Wimbledon campaign ended in disappointment with a first-round loss. Despite the setback, Samsonova’s past success in the US capital, where she clinched the title last year, provides motivation for her return. As she steps on the court for the first time since Wimbledon, she will be eager to recapture her red-hot form and make a strong impact in Washington DC.

Danielle Collins

Collins has faced challenges due to a recurring knee injury in her recent form. Nevertheless, she showcased her tenacity and talent on the hard courts, achieving notable performances in various tournaments. Her semifinal appearance in Austin and quarterfinal finishes in Adelaide and Melbourne demonstrate her potential to compete at a high level. Despite missing out on some events, Collins’ success on home hard courts, including a title win in San Jose and impressive runs in the US Open and San Diego, make her a player to watch at the Citi Open.
