Mirra Andreeva vs Leylah Fernandez – Match Predictions

Leylah Fernandez to Win

Andreeva received a wildcard for the tournament and will be looking for her first WTA win. On the other hand, Fernandez will aim to regain her form after an underwhelming start to the season. The 15-year-old Andreeva won four ITF titles in 2022 and now finds herself in the big leagues. Fernandez has struggled this season but has not faltered at the first hurdle in any competition in 2023. At 20, Fernandez is five years Andreeva’s senior and should be able to capitalize on the accrued experience to claim passage to the next round.

2-0 to Leylah Fernandez

The match promises to be an exciting one between two promising young talents at different stages of their career. Andreeva is breaking out while Fernandez has to prove whether she can carry the burden of expectations. The young Russian is not used to this level of competition and will find it difficult to adjust to the rigours of the WTA circuit. Based on this, we are anticipating a straight-set humbling for her at Fernandez’s hands.

Mirra Andreeva

Mirra Andreeva, a 15-year-old tennis player, has received a wildcard entry into the Madrid Open. She is a rising star in the tennis world and has already made her debut on the professional tour. Andreeva has reached the top 200 in the rankings and is currently ranked third in the Junior World rankings.

She has had success in junior Grand Slam tournaments, reaching the quarterfinals at Roland-Garros and US Open last year. Andreeva has also won four ITF Circuit titles in 2022, and recently won two W60 Swiss trophies on clay courts. She will be looking for her first WTA win at the Madrid Open.

Leylah Fernandez

Leylah Fernandez has played on green clay and indoor hard court and is now competing on red clay. She lost in the second round in Charleston and Miami Open but will take confidence after winning both of her matches in the BJK Cup qualifiers.

Despite starting the year with a quarterfinal appearance in Auckland, she has not won consecutive matches in her last six tournaments. Her current form is not the same as before she injured her ankle during the Roland-Garros quarterfinal run in 2022.
