Bet and win
For the second year in a row, Ashleigh Barty qualifies for the Australian Open quarterfinals. Last year, it was Kvitova who stood in the way of Ashleigh (1-6, 4-6). After that match, three more times the tennis players played among themselves, Barty invariably defeated.
The first racket of the world is suitable for the match against Kvitova against the background of an eight-match winning series. However, we cannot call the current Barty game stable. After a landslide victory over Rybakina (6-3, 6-2), the best match was played by Ashleigh against Riske (6-3, 1-6, 6-4). In the forecast for that game, we noted Barty’s current instability.
The Australian tennis player played very uncertainly on the second pitch (she won seven of 25 in all). The same uncertainty appeared at breakpoints (only one out of five break points was able to play on its server). An experienced Kvitova will be able to take advantage of this uncertainty.
Last year’s Australian Open finalist Petra Kvitova until the fourth round went through the tournament bracket without given sets. Only in the match against Saqqara for the first time in the tournament the Czech tennis player gave the set (6-7, 6-3, 6-2).
I could not immediately find my game in the game against Saqqara and adjust to the reception at the service of Mary. In the second installment, Kvitova already had a total advantage at the reception, and Sakkari surrendered to the third set.
As in the case of Barty, we cannot call Kvitova’s successful game in the fourth round. Immediately 46 unforced errors allowed herself to Peter with 33 winners. It helped that the opponent acted too unconvincingly on her serve. Barty in this regard is able to play on the first serve much more reliably.
Statistics and personal meetings
- In personal meetings leads Kvitova 4-3.
- The last three personal meetings in 2019 ended with Barty’s wons.
Ashleigh Barty vs Petra Kvitova Prediction
In the course of last season, Ashley Barty outlined her advantage over Petra Kvitova, having won three victories at once. The match against Maria Sakkari showed that there is no stability in Petra’s game.
Barty also does not act too reliably on the court, as it was last season, but the Australian tennis player is still fully utilizing the potential of her first serve. We think this may affect the Australian tennis player.
In the line of bookmakers, Barty receives a small status as a favorite, which is quite natural. We expect that on the second attempt Ashley will be able to overcome the resistance of Kvitova in Melbourne.
Our prediction Barty will win.
