A ticket to the semifinal of the tournament in Adelaide on January 15 will be played between themselves Donna Vekic and Dayana Yastremska. We offer a prediction for the winner of the match for the representatives of the top 30 WTA ratings.
Last week, the Croatian tennis player Donna Vekic (3-6, 6-3, 5-7) started in Brisbane in the new season with a defeat from Yulia Putintseva. In Adelaide, things were much better with Donna.
The tournament bracket on the way to the quarter-finals was not easy for Vekic. In the first round, I had to play against Sevastova, who before that could not beat. Donna managed in three sets (4-6, 6-1, 6-3). In the second round game, it again took three sets to defeat the unyielding Sakkari (2-6, 7-5, 6-1).
In the course of each of the matches there were problems in the starting sets of Vekic but gradually added, adjusted to the opponents. Obviously, there is potential and a desire to fight.
Dayana Yastremskaya also failed the first tournament of the season. At the start of Brisbane, there was a defeat from Bertens (4-6, 6-1, 3-6).
In the first round, Adelaide managed without serious problems with Babosh (7-5, 6-3). It was noticeable in the match that at the reception nothing happened at Timea. Following the removal of the rival Yastremska passed Angelique Kerber. How ready is the Ukrainian tennis player now to confront Vekic? Indeed, according to the matches held at the tournament, we can’t say that Donna looks in some ways worse than Dayana in the game.
Statistics and personal meetings
- Yastremska twice won in personal meetings, in one game the victory was on the removal of the opponent.
- This season, tennis players won two matches and lost one game.
Donna Vekic vs Dayana Yastremska Predictions
Both tennis players are not stable, play in an aggressive and offensive manner. Last year, at the small final tournament, there was an equal first set, where Vekic did not realize set balls. And then she could not return to the game (6-7, 2-6). In that game, we can’t say that Dayana had a noticeable serious advantage.
At the current tournament, Vekic passed two serious rivals, played out, added during the matches. We do not think that at the moment there is a serious difference between the tennis players in level and class, as the odds show us. On the line, we offer a prediction for the success of the underdog.
