Maria Sakkari vs Marketa Vondrousova – Match Predictions

Both players are ready to go deep in the Berlin Open, and whoever wins this quarterfinal may end up with the trophy.

Maria Sakkari to win

Sakkari is in the Top 10 of the WTA rankings, something that Vondrousova has never done in her young career. The Greek has a 26-17 career record on grass while her opponent is only 7-11. Given these numbers, it is pretty strange to see Sakakri as an underdog in this match. She lost a toral of 9 games in the first two matches in Berlin which proves her excellent form. Taking all these into consideration, Sakkari should win this match.

Total Sets 3

Vondrousova defeated Sakkari in straight sets earlier this year and this will be a much tougher battle on Berlin’s grass. Vondrousiva wants to get back in the Top 20 and Sakkari is probably the fittest player on tour. This will be a long match that will probably go in the decisive set.

She made it to four semifinals this season in Linz, Doha, Indian Wells and Madrid but failed to make it to the finals on each occasion.

Marketa Vondrousova

Vondrousova is currently ranked No. 53 in the world and her career high is No. 14. The 23-year-old is 24-9 for the season and 2-0 on grass. In the previous tow rounds of the Berlin Open, Vondrousova defeated Bianca Andreescu 7-6, 7-5 in the opening match and in the second round Jule Niemeier retired at 6-3, 6-5 for Vondrousova. Her best result this year was the semifinal at the tournament in Linz where she lost to Anastasia Potapova.
