Fernandez vs Krejcikova: Barbora to extend her winning streak
In the second round of the Olympic tournament Leylah Fernandez will face Barbora Krejcikova on July 26. Czech player has extended her winning streak to six matches. Should we expect another victory from her? The answer is in our prediction.
18-year old Canada representative Leylah Fernandez had her best tournament of the season in March. Back then she won a title of Monterrey competition. After that she had a long slump, Leylah couldn't win more than one match on any tournament.
In Tokyo Fernandez played against Dayana Yastremska in the first round. Players exchanged sets and then Ukrainian player was crushed by Leylah in the third set (6:3, 3:6, 6:0).
Barbora Krejcikova is in a phenomenal form since May. Czech player won four titles, including Roland Garros. She had only one defeat recently - Barbora was beaten in the round of 16 at Wimbledon by Ashleigh Barty (5:7, 3:6).
Looking at Krejcikova's level of performance right now, we can say that she is one of the golden medal contenders on the Olympic Games. In the first round match Barbora's opponent, Zarina Diyas, withdrew herself from competition, when Czech player was ahead with a 5:2 score.
In four out of last five Fernandez' matches no more than nine games were played in the second set
Krejcikova recorded five most recent victories with a 2:0 score on sets
It is obvious who is a favourite of this match - Barbora Krejcikova. Czech player is maintaining her excellent form for two consecutive months and we can't say the same about a young Canadian player. Canadian player rarely puts up impressive results, she lost a set to Yastremska in the first round, so we think that she won't be able to put up a fight in the match against an experienced Barbora.
Our prediction - Krejcikova to win with a handicap of (-5) games
Prediction: Handicap (-6) on Krejcikova
