Sonay Kartal vs Madison Keys – Match Predictions
As Sonay Kartal and Madison Keys set their sights on a second round spot, these are our predictions and tips for this match
Madison Keys to Win in Straight Sets
We would like to point out that Sonay Kartal has played a total of three matches in the main draw of WTA tournaments in the past 12 months, and she lost all three matches. The Brit crashed out in the first qualifying round of the last three grand slams, and only made it through to this competition as a wild card. Interestingly, Kartal was a wild card here last year, but she didn’t make it past the first round.
In contrast, Madison Keys is fresh off a WTA title at the Eastbourne International; she won the tournament without surrendering a single set last week, beating players like Coco Gauff, Petra Martic and Daria Kasatkina in the process. Bearing in mind that Sonay Kartal mostly plies her trade in ITF events, anything other than a straight sets victory for Madison Keys would be a surprise.
Less Than 21 Total Games
We’ve already established that Madison Keys won the Eastbourne International title last week. She’s coming into this match on the back of five consecutive wins, and all of those victories were in straight sets. Compared to the players Keys faced at Eastbourne last week, Sonay Kartal should be a relatively easier opponent. Although we believe the British player will give her all to win this match, we don’t think she’ll do enough to take more than eight games off Madison Keys. On that note, we are taking the under 20.5 games option.
Sonay Kartal vs Madison Keys Preview
Now that we’ve established our Sonay Kartal vs Madison Keys predictions, let’s see how these players have fared in recent weeks.
For the second consecutive year, Sonay Kartal received a wild card into the Wimbledon main draw. She hasn’t really fared well in the main event of WTA tournaments; as she’s 0 for 3 in WTA level events in the last 12 months. The British player will hope to get the biggest win of her career as she takes on former US Open finalist Madison Keys.
On the other hand, Madison Keys has enjoyed some fine form lately; she reigned supreme at the Eastbourne International last week, winning all of her matches in straight sets. Keys will look to extend her winning streak to six matches, and she’ll fancy her chances against Sonay Kartal.
Sonay Kartal vs Madison Keys Head to Head
Sonay Kartal and Madison Keys will be meeting for the first time today. This isn’t much of a surprise considering Kartal hasn’t been on tour for a long time, and she mostly plays ITF events.
