Taiwanese tennis play Hsieh Su-wei has made it into the quarterfinals of the 2019 WTA Morocco Open where she will face Johanna Konta from the United Kingdom.
Hsieh Su-wei looked in decent touch in her previous match as she defeated her opponent in 3 sets. It was a poor start to the match for Hsieh as she lost the opening set but the Taiwanese superstar showed her class by winning the second set 7-5 and the third set 6-3. Hsieh Su-wei received serve well during the win as she broke her opponent serve on 3 occasions. While the win was a good result, Hsieh Su-wei didn’t look at her best and her serving was poor as she lost 5 service games. Hsieh Su-wei will have to improve her serve if she wishes to win this match.
On the other side of the coin, Johanna Konta looked very solid during her previous match as she also won in 3 sets. It was a good performance by Konta as she only lost the middle set due to a tiebreaker. During the win, Johanna Konta received serve exceptionally well as she won over 47% of her receiving points. Konta won 7 return games and 85% of her service games to set up a very good win.
Hsieh Su-wei and Johanna Konta have played each other 6 times in the past. Konta has the stronger head-to-head record of 4-2. The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at Indian Wells where Johanna Konta won in straight sets.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Johanna Konta to win this match. Hsieh Su-wei has not looked at her best and the Taiwanese player is better suited to the hard court. Konta looked very impressive in her previous match and I see her winning this tie and making the semifinals.
