Sloane Stephens vs Rebecca Peterson – Match Predictions

Sloane Stephens to Win

Rebecca Peterson has lost three of her last four matches. Moreover, she has lost her last six matches on grass. Stephens arrives without any competitive experience on grass this season and on a three-match losing streak on the surface. However, it is the latter, the 2013 Wimbledon quarter-final experience under his belt, who we are backing. She made it to the fourth round of the French Open and will fancy her chances against Peterson.

2-0 to Sloane Stephens

Two of Sloane’s last three defeats on grass have seen her go down in three sets. Despite her struggles on the surface, she has not let up. Five of the last seven wins for the American has come in straight sets and she should get a similar result against Peterson. The Swede has been woefully out of touch with all four of her recent defeats in completed matches coming in straight sets.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Wimbledon.

Sloane Stephens

After crashing out of the French Open round four at the hands of Aryna Sabalenka, Stephens has remained inactive. The American would have surely spent time in practice for Wimbledon as she is on a three-match losing spree on grass. She was supposed to play in Germany, at Berlin and in Bad Homburg, but did not. As it stands, she has not reached the quarter-finals on grass since 2015 and it will be interesting how she turns up at the All England Club this time around.

Rebecca Peterson

The 27-year-old has lost her last six matches on grass and will be looking to get the bad run of form over against Stephens. However, she has not been on a good run of form recently, losing four of her last six fixtures. She has only accumulated two wins in the last two months and needs to be at her best if she wants to turn it around. However, she will be buoyed by her previous win over the American ace.

Sloane Stephens vs Rebecca Peterson Head to Head

This is the second meeting between Sloane Stephens and Rebecca Peterson on the WTA tour. The Swedish ace has the upper hand, claiming a 2-0 win in Washington back in 2019.
