In the 2020 season, Alexandrova lost one match. The offender of the Russian woman was Kvitova. On February 14, tennis players will play among themselves again in St. Petersburg. From our prediction we talk about Ekaterina’s chances for revenge. Alexandrova beat Donna Vekich without any difficulties, and the Russian woman could have managed even more confidently, but at the end of the match she began to make a lot of mistakes.

Alexandrova stands out as an attacking potential, because she invests in her every blow, almost to the maximum. For this reason, from the very first rallies, it seizes the initiative on the court and further on throughout the meeting it dictates its own rules. The arsenal also has a cannon feed, and if the first ball comes in regularly, then it easily wins its games. But it often happens that lumbago does not go and in such situations Ekaterina can not do anything, but only continues to beat and hopes for luck.
After two difficult fights for the national team in the Federation Cup, Ekaterina Alexandrova held two successful matches in St. Petersburg. In the first round in the Russian tennis derby, Ekaterina outplayed Kasatkina in three sets (6-4, 3-6, 6-4). She was able to cope with Vekic in two games (6-1, 7-5). The Croatian tennis player had a chance to transfer the game to the third set, but she played too uncertainly with gross errors.
We cannot call the game convincing Alexandrova herself either. First of all, she worked poorly on her serve, winning only 54% of the points.
Recently, it’s a little strange to watch Kvitova’s game. After all, everyone is used to the fact that she acts on the court over aggressively and constantly dictates her own rules. Now the Petra is trying in every possible way to change her game. Kvitova wants to combine on the court, hold lengthy rallies and tactically defeat rivals. It turns out this is not always with her, since Kvitova, although she lost a lot of extra pounds, improved her movement on the court, but because of her rather big dimensions, she was too slow.
It was difficult to start the match in St. Petersburg, Petra Kvitova. In the game with Van Uytvanck, the Czech tennis player seemed to compete with a rival in the number of unforced errors. As a result, for two tennis players for three sets they made more than 100 unforced errors, and Kvitova won the match (7-6, 1-6, 6-2).
Quite often, Kvitova experiences problems in starting fights at tournaments. Is it ready to add and play better in the next match? Judging by the third set of the match with Van Uytvanck, there is potential for this.
Betting Tips Statistics
- In the only personal meeting, Kvitova won.
- Alexandrova has only one defeat in 12 matches played this season.
- Alexandrov’s only defeat in 2020 was from Kvitova to Australian Open (1-6, 2-6).
In the upcoming match, we will definitely see a huge number of strikes for a relegation and spectacular rallies. The advantage of Kvitova over Alexandrova is that Ekaterina does not know how to play against left-handed players, and Petra uses this very well.
Tennis players were not impressed with their game in the first matches in St. Petersburg. Obviously, Alexandrova is not easy to keep in excellent shape for a long period of time. Kvitova is difficult to adapt to the audience in her first match. In January, in Melbourne, Alexandrova was unable to oppose Petra. Perhaps the match will drag on, but still Peter Kvitova will be the winner.
