Our favourite Sloane Stephens vs Daria Kasatkina – match predictions

Stephens, breaking a four-year streak of early exits, seeks to extend her newfound success at Melbourne Park, while Kasatkina aims to capitalize on her recent quarterfinal appearance in Brisbane. The stage is set for an intriguing duel between two accomplished players with distinct Grand Slam histories.

Daria Kasatkina to win @ 3/5 (1.60)

Daria has a losing record against her second-round American rival. However, all three of her losses came on clay courts while her only victory against Sloane came on the hard courts of Indian Wells. She has been in red-hot form, reaching the quarter-finals in Brisbane and following it up with a runner-up finish in Adelaide Open. With momentum on her side, we are backing Kasatkina to triumph in this meeting.

Over 21.5 Games @ 17/20 (1.85)

In her outings in the 2024 campaign, Sloane has a 2-2 record following her straight-set victory over Gadecki. Her losses have not been tame affairs, her rivals needing a deciding set to get past her. She will complicate matters for Kasatkina, who needed a deciding set to get past Stearns in the first round. That match saw 25 games being played and we believe a similar marathon outing is on the cards. As a consequence, we are going with the risk-averse Over 21.5 games selection.

Stephens vs Kasatkina odds

For the upcoming second-round clash at the Australian Open, the odds slightly favour Daria, with a 62.5% chance of victory, compared to Sloane Stephens’ 43.5% probability.
