Maria Sakkari to win

Sakkari is coming of a successful week in Rome and she seems ready to go deep in Rome as well. Vondrousova is having a solid season on clay and is coming off a dominant performance in the previous round. it is a fact that Sakkari’s favorite surface is not clay but she is definitely the better player between the two. The Greek player has one of the strongest forehands on the tour and moves well on the court which will bring her the win in this match.

Over 21.5 games
