The Line: -- Over/Under: Click Here for the Latest Odds
Czech tennis superstar Petra Kvitova will play at the 2019 WTA US Open. Petra Kvitova will begin her tournament in the opening round against Denisa Allertova who is also from Czechia.
Denisa Allertova enters this tournament following 3 wins at the qualifying event. It was a good qualifying tournament for Allertova as she showed great composure and skill. In general, Denisa Allertova is seen on the ITF circuit where she has had success. Recently, Denisa Allertova made the final of both the ITF Czech Republic 01A and ITF Czech Republic 03A. The US Open is a significantly tougher tournament and Denisa Allertova may find it tough as she is playing against the number 6 seed in the opening round.
Looking at the Petra Kvitova, the Czech superstar has missed some tennis this season but she made her return at the Cincinnati Masters where she was eliminated in the opening round to Maria Sakkari. Despite issues with injury, Petra Kvitova has had a strong 2019 season as she finished second at the Australian Open and the Dubai Tennis Championships while winning the Stuttgart Open. Petra Kvitova has a decent record at the US Open as she has won close to 70% of her matches at this venue. Kvitova’s best performance at the US Open was making it into the quarterfinals. Last season, Petra Kvitova made the third round of the tournament.
This will be the first time that Petra Kvitova and Denisa Allertova will be playing each other at a WTA event.
Denisa Allertova has had some success in ITF tournaments but she has not played much tennis at the full WTA level and I see the jump being too big. Allertova is playing an elite opponent in Kvitova and I see her struggling. Petra Kvitova got some court time at the Cincinnati Masters and I see her being fresh for this tournament. Kvitova has had a strong 2019 season and I see her challenging for the US Open title this season. I see Petra Kvitova winning this match in straight sets.
