The second round of Montreal Open will bring us a matchup between two former winners Petra Kvitova and Camila Giorgi.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Petra Kvitova vs Camila Giorgi – Match Predictions

Petra Kvitova is one of the veteran players at the WTA tour, but her 2023 record shows that she is still in excellent form. Giorgi has defeated Kvitoa before, and we will see if she can be competitive after coming from the qualifiers in Montreal.

Petra Kvitova to win

The last time these two played, Kvitova lost only two games. It is not expected for the two-time Wimbledon champion to be that dominant this time around, but she is undoubtedly the better player and will win this match.

Under 21.5 games

All of the previous four matches between these two players ended in straight sets, and that will probably be the case in Montreal as well. Kvitova is in much better shape than Giorgi, who will play her fourth match in five days. Kvitova will take control of the match early one and close it out in less than 21.5 games.

Two years ago Giorgi defeated Kvitova at the Montreal Open and it is a huge question if the Italian stand any chance against the former No. 2 this time.

Petra Kvitova

Kvitova is currently 9th in the rankings. She has a 25-8 record for the season, including 17-5 on hard.

This will be her first match since Wimbledon, where she lost to Ons Jabeur in the round of 16. That was her first loss after eight consecutive wins after she won the title in Berlin the week before Wimbledon. That was her second title of the year, as she also lifted the trophy in Miami in April.

Kvitova won WTA Montreal in 2012 and reached the round of 16 in her last four appearances.

Camila Giorgi

Giorgi is 51st in the rankings, which is way lower than her career-high 26th place. The Italian is 21-14 for the season and 12-5 on hard.

She defeated Elvina Kalieva and Ashlyn Krueger in the qualifiers before beating Bianca Andreescu 6-3, 6-2 in the opening round of the main draw.

The 2021 WTA Montreal winner won one title this year in Merida defeating Rebecca Peterson in the finals.

This will be the fifth match between Kvitova and Giorgi, and both players have won two of the previous four.

Giorgi won in the round of 16 in Montreal in 2021, 6-4, 6-4, and in the same stage in 2018 in Sydney, 7-6, 6-2. Kvitova won the first match at the 2014 Billy Jean King Cup, 6-4, 6-2.
