Ostapenko slowly but surely comes to her senses. This season, although the Latvian can’t boast of results, Jelena began to act several times more confidently on the court, especially when compared with last year.
No matter how strange it may sound, Ostapenko is again trying to change stylistically and there are already first successes. After all, at the tournament in Dubai, the Latvian got two wins and did’t pour in mistakes, as she usually does, but on the contrary she acted reliably in rallies and even scored points of protracted exchanges of punches. But this is not all, because Jelena caught the rhythm on her pitch and now wins easy points due to the first ball, as it was before. But it’s too early to draw any conclusions, since Ostapenko has not yet met with serious rivals.
Czech professional player, winner of two singles Grand Slam tournaments (Wimbledon 2011, 2014) and the Final WTA Tour (2011), finalist of one Grand Slam singles tournament (Australian Open 2019), winner of 27 WTA singles, six-time winner of the Federation Cup (2011-12, 2014-16, 2018) and a one-time Hopman Cup (2012) as part of the Czech national team, bronze medalist of the 2016 Olympic Games in singles, former second world racket in singles.
Recently, Kvitova only upsets with her slurred game. Since for about a year she has not been able to clearly demonstrate anything at large tournaments, and if she scores points somewhere, then only at small WTA 250-500k. It should be noted that such problems began after the Czech began to change. After all, now Petra enters the court with a clear plan and no longer tries to end the draw with one hit. But Kvitova noticeably slowed down in her power, because she lost weight and this was immediately reflected in the strength of the blows, as well as the feed.

Ostapenko vs Kvitova Predictions
Kvitova terribly spent the first match in the tournament, because throughout the meeting she was sluggish, moved poorly on the court and made mistakes in simple situations. It’s unlikely that the Czech will be able to suddenly add over the day, so Ostapenko has every chance of creating a sensation. Jelena has become much more reliable in acting and confidently delivers. If nothing changes, then the Latvian could get 1/ Finals.
