Wang Xinyu vs Krejcikova: a confident victory for Barbora?
19-year old Chinese player Wang Xinyu is considered one of the most talented players of her country. So far Wang Xinyu is successful only on ITF tournaments, but she also reached the second round of WTA tournaments at St. Petersburg and at Miami.
Prague tournament is the most successful in her career, because she reached the semi-final. We can't say that Wang Xinyu did something impossible at the Czech capital. In each of her matches she was considered a favourite and lived up to the expectations. Chinese player recorded victories over Kung (6:2, 6:2), Liang En-shuo (3:6, 7:5, 6:1) and Min (6:3, 6:3).
A winner of 2021 Roland Garros is in a great form and she wants to win a home tournament at Prague. So far Barbora Krejcikova is on a confident way to the final.
In the first round 13th WTA player beat Shinikova quite easily (6:2, 6:3). In the second round match against Bonaventure Barbora had some difficulties on her serve, but still managed to record a victory in straight sets (7:6, 6:4). In the quarter-final Krejcikova played against her friend, Siniakova. It was not a contested match. Barbora got an easy win over her compatriot (6:3, 6:0), which we had a prediction on.
Only in one of last five Wang's matches no more than nine games were played in the second set
In four out of last five Krejcikova's matches more games were played in the first set than in the second one
Krejcikova is a clear favourite of an upcoming match. Czech player didn't lose her form after a triumph at Roland Garros, she is playing at home, so she is motivated to win another title. We are expecting a confident victory for the favourite
Our prediction - Krejcikova to win with a handicap of (-5) games
Krejcikova recorded all of her victories in the main draw in straight sets. We are not expecting a long match in the semi-final.
Our second bet is on total under 20 games
