Czech tennis superstar Petra Kvitova is set to play at the 2020 WTA Australian Open in Melbourne. At this stage of the tournament, Kvitova is set to play against Katerina Siniakova.
Katerina Siniakova began her tournament at the 2020 Shenzhen Open in China. Siniakova played well in the doubles tournament but she failed to perform in the singles tournament. Katerina Siniakova was eliminated during the opening round. The Australian Open has always been a tough tournament for Katerina Siniakova as she has only won 2 matches at this tournament. Katerina Siniakova has played at the Australian Open since 2014 and she has a win rate of only 25% at this event. This is expected to be a tough match for Katerina Siniakova as she is playing against the number 7 seed.
On the other side of the coin, Petra Kvitova has had a strong start to the season. Kvitova played at the Brisbane International where she made it into the semifinals. Kvitova was eventually defeated by Madison Keys but the tournament provided good preparation for the Czech superstar. The Australian Open has been a strong tournament for Petra Kvitova as she made the final of the tournament last season. Kvitova has always produced her best tennis in Australia and she will be hoping to challenge for the title.
Petra Kvitova and Katerina Siniakova have played each other twice in the past with Kvitova winning on both prior occasions. The most recent match between these two players was in 2019 at Dubai where Petra Kvitova won in 3 sets.
Looking at all the information, I see Petra Kvitova winning this match. Katerina Siniakova is a solid player but she has not looked in good touch and her record against Kvitova is poor. Petra Kvitova is a genuine contender for the Australian Open title and she should be good enough to win this match in straight sets.
