In the first quarterfinal of the Brisbane tournament, Danielle Rose Collins will play with Madison Keyes. The meeting will take place on January 10th. What to expect from the fight? – read in our prediction.
Danielle Rose Collins
Collins is well prepared for the new season. In the previous two matches in this tournament, Danielle Rose did not leave a chance to Elina Svitolina (6-1, 6-1) and Yulia Putintseva (6-1, 6-0). Prior to this, the American took part in competitions in Hawaii. She won that tournament, but played only one match at it.
In the semifinals, Collins defeated Ioannina Wikmeier (6-3, 6-4), but in the decisive match she had to play against Kerber. Angelique did not show up for the match. As a result, the representative of the USA got the victory without a fight.
In 2019, Collins in Brisbane lost in the first round. But at JSC Daniel reached the semifinals.
Keys did not play in these competitions last year. Then she missed the first tournaments and appeared only at AO, where she reached the 1/8 finals. It seems that Madison decided to prepare well for the defense of rating points, since this time she decided to play on the tour from the very beginning of the season.
In the first two matches, the American first dealt with Marie Buzkova (6-3, 6-2), and then broke the resistance of Samantha Stosur (5-7, 3-6).
Statistics and personal meetings
- Two years ago, on hard Collins beat Keys in two sets (7-6, 6-3).
- Last year, Daniel won 12 matches on Hard. Madison – 15.
Danielle Rose Collins vs Madison Keys Prediction
Keys had some problems in confrontation with 36-year-old Stosur. The American was greatly helped by her pitch, but her patency was not high. Collins looks better for now. Daniel did not leave a chance to her rivals, losing in two matches only three games. In the previous match between Collins and Keys, 22 games were played. It is possible that something similar will happen now.
Well, since Daniel had a great last fights, we suggest taking a chance.
