Tatjana Maria vs Bernarda Pera – Match Predictions
Maria is having a good season so far and she will go against Pera who has not been active in recent weeks. This will be their first match in the last four years and they have had pretty interesting battles in the past.
Maria to win
Pera is much younger than Maria and more than 30 places higher in the WTA rankings. This looks like an easy choice on her but Maria is actually the better player this season. The German has been playing consistency well and had a great start in Madrid dropping only two games in the opening round. This will be a tough game and Maria will prevail at the end.
Over 22.5 games
This match may bring many ups and downs for both players so there will be many breaks of serves and momentum changes. Their previous two matches went into the third set so this one would probably have the same outcome.
