The Line: -- Over/Under:
Czech tennis player, Barbora Strycova has made it into the semifinals of the 2019 WTA Istanbul Open in Turkey. At this stage of the tournament, Barbora Strycova will face Markéta Vondroušová who is also from the Czech Republic.
Markéta Vondroušová enters this match having won her previous match in straight sets. It was a dominant performance by Markéta Vondroušová as she only 3 games in the entire match. During the win, Vondroušová received serve exceptionally well as the Czech player won 59% of her receiving points. Markéta Vondroušová won 75% of her receiving games and 86% of her service games to sum up a very solid victory. Markéta Vondroušová has looked in outstanding form throughout this tournament and she will be very tough to beat.
On the other side of the coin, Barbora Strycova won her previous match in 3 sets. It was a very poor start to the match for Strycova as she lost the opening set 6-0 but fought back extremely well to win the second set via a tiebreaker and the third set 6-0. While Barbora Strycova has been winning, she has not been at her best during this tournament as she has not won a single match in straight sets. Considering her recent form, Barbora Strycova may struggle to win this match.
This will be the first time that Barbora Strycova and Markéta Vondroušová will be playing each other at a WTA event.
Barbora Strycova is a very accomplished player and she has been doing enough to win matches. Strycova scraped into the semifinals after a very poor performance in the previous round. With that in mind, I see Barbora Strycova’s tournament ending after this match. Markéta Vondroušová has been playing very well and she looks to in far better form than Barbora Strycova. Markéta Vondroušová looked dominant in her previous match and I see her winning this match also.
