Petra Kvitova to Win
This should be an interesting match between two familiar opponents. Over the past seven years, these players clashed nine times, and Kvitova leads the head-to-head, with five wins and four losses. However, it’s important to point out that recent clashes between these players have actually been a bit one-sided. As a matter of fact, Petra Kvitova won five of the last seven skirmishes between these players. That said, we believe the former World number 2 will advance to the fourth round ahead of her opponent.
Over 21.5 Games
We would like to point out that two of the last three encounters between these players ended in maximum sets, and three of their last four meetings went above the projected over/under line. In the same vein, both players have enjoyed a fairly good run of form in recent weeks. With that in mind, we believe that this match can go all the way to three sets, and it should go over 21.5 games.
Petra Kvitova vs Jelena Ostapenko Preview
We’ve established our predictions for this match. Next, we would like to look at both players’ performance in recent weeks.
Petra Kvitova looked really good in her second round match-up with Elizabeth Mandlik. She defeated her opponent in straight sets, converting 6 of 14 break points. The former World number 2 will be eyeing a place in the fourth round, and she’ll fancy her chances against Ostapenko.
On the other hand, Ostapenko’s previous match wasn’t as one-sided as Kvitova’s. She needed her very best in order to defeat Aliaksandra Sasnovich in three sets. It’ll be interesting to see how the former French Open champion will match-up against Kvitova.
