Kiki Bertens vs Ashleigh Barty
|Date & Time||Friday August 10, 2018, 9:00 AM (EDT)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
Australian tennis player, Ashleigh Barty, has made it to the quarterfinals of the WTA Rogers Cup event in Montreal. At this stage of the tournament, she will be taking on the talented Kiki Bertens from the Netherlands. This is a big fixture since the winner will get a spot in the final 4 of this prestigious tournament. Both these players are very talented and evenly matched which should ensure that we get a closely contested tennis match.
Ashleigh Barty has looked very dominant in this tournament as she has only lost 1 set in the entire campaign. The Australians player has looked sharp and seems to be hitting the ball very sweetly. These are positive signs and she will look to use them in this match. It has been a good few months for Ashleigh Barty as she has made many deep runs in WTA tournaments including winning the Nottingham Open before Wimbledon. The Australian will be keen to continue that run of good form in this tournament by winning.
On the other side of the coin, Kiki Bertens looks very sharp also. The Dutch superstar beat Petra Kvitova in straight sets in a very dominant display. Bertens has looked very dominant all tournament and has not lost a single set. This is very impressive and she will feel that she has a really good chance of making it into the final 4. Bertens will know that this is going to be another tough match but after beating Petra Kvitova, confidence will be high for the Dutch superstar.
This is not an easy match to predict since both players are playing well but I am going to side with Kiki Bertens winning. Either player could win but my prediction is based on the fact that Bertens is looking more hungry to win than Ashleigh Barty in this tournament.
