Sloane Stephens vs Shelby Rogers – Match Predictions

After less-than-spectacular displays at the Indian Wells, both Sloane Stephens and Shelby Rogers kickstart their Miami Open campaign against each other. It remains to be seen which one from the 30-year-old duo continues their trajectory at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

Under 21.5 Games

It is difficult to pick between Stephens or Rogers in this match, with both ladies giving a good account of their abilities in recent competitions. Three of Rogers’ last five outings have concluded within two sets, while all five for Stephens have finished in this manner. Given the regularity of two set finishes, we are backing an Under 21.5 Games conclusion to this meeting.

9-10 Games in Set 1

The first set involving Rogers is not usually a high-scoring one, concluding with 9-10 games in three of the last five occasions. The tally stands at four in five for Stephens’ first sets. With both ladies seeing 9-10 games on a regular basis, we are backing this selection to come true in their 1/64 finals meeting.

Sloane Stephens vs Shelby Rogers Preview

We have established our predictions for this match, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the 2023 campaign.

Sloane Stephens

It has been a start-stop 2023 campaign for Sloane Stephens. The 30-year-old has struggled to string together results. In the majors, she has been knocked out at the first time of asking, whilst giving better performances in the lesser ranked WTA Austin and WTA Merida. She reached the quarterfinals in both competitions and will be eyeing a similar return in the second of the Sunset Masters.

Shelby Rogers

The 30-year-old has struggled to get past the initial rounds of WTA Dubai and Indian Wells recently. Coming into the Miami Open, she will be looking at her run in the WTA Abu Dhabi, where she reached the quarterfinals and bowed out after running into ninth-ranked Belinda Bencic. Bencic is out with an injury but other sharks remain in the waters for her.

Sloane Stephens vs Shelby Rogers Head to Head

Despite only five ranking places separating Sloane Stephens and Shelby Rogers, this is their first-ever meeting on the WTA circuit.
