Australian Open 2020 – Julia Görges will play against Petra Martic, and we offer a prediction for this fight. Are Croatians still strong? – read in our material.
Bet and win
Gerges began to play on the grass. She not only defended her last year’s result in Birmingham but also has every chance to improve it. To do this, she needs to go through Petra Martic.
This year, Julia began her performances on the grass in a bad way. In the duel against Yastremsky, she lost the first set, and it seemed that Gerges would not be able to cope with the Ukrainian tennis player. But, as it turned out, it was a shot to the courts.
In the next two games, the German woman began to play order of magnitude better and deservedly won 6-4, 6-3. In the next matches, Julia was much easier, as she beat Yevgeny Rodina and Yulia Putintseva in two sets.
Martic broke into the semifinals of this tournament with fights. In the first two rounds, the Croatian coped with Ekaterina Alexandrova (6-3, 7-6) and Margarita Gasparyan (6-3, 7-6). True, in the quarterfinals, Petra could finish her performances in Birmingham.
But Elena Ostapenko did everything to ensure that Martic remained in service. The representative of Latvia had five match points but failed to take advantage of such a gift. Moreover, Ostapenko made 20 double mistakes for the entire match. It is not surprising that the victory went to the Croatian.
Last year, Martic won only one match on the grass. Now she has already surpassed this result.
Statistics and personal meetings
- Between themselves, these tennis players played only one match on hard. The victory went to Gerges.

Julia Görges vs Petra Martic Prediction
Martic did not have her best segment of games, but mistakes allowed Petra to win. It is unlikely that this will happen again in another match. Gerges is considered a more experienced tennis player, so he won’t allow this. Most likely, the German will be in the finals.
