Alize Cornet and Angelique Kerber meet in the quarterfinal of the 2022 tennis Bad Homburg Open.

Alize Cornet is coming off a straight set win over Tatjana Maria that took 23 games to decide. In the victory, Cornet won 79 percent of her first serve points and 58 percent of her second serve points. Cornet won 71 percent of her total service points and converted on 3 of her 4 break points. Cornet got 59 percent of her first serves in play and hit one ace. It’s been a rough few months for Cornet, so seeing wins in 4 of her last 6 matches should make the 32-year-old quite happy. Cornet has a chance to win 3 straight matches for the first time since making the quarterfinals at the Australian Open. Cornet has split her last 8 matches on grass court.

Angelique Kerber is coming off a straight set win over Lucia Bronzetti that took 17 games to decide. In the victory, Kerber won 78 percent of her first serve points and 78 percent of her second serve points. Kerber won 78 percent of her total service points and converted on 3 of her 4 break points. Kerber got 54 percent of her first serves in play and saved all 4 of her break points. Kerber has lost 9 games in her first 4 sets and each of her last 3 wins have been decided in straight sets. Kerber has now won at least 2 matches in 3 straight tournaments. Kerber has won 9 of her last 10 matches on grass court.

Kerber has won 5 of the 7 meetings against Cornet, including the most recent match in 2021 Rome. Cornet’s last win over Kerber was 2018 Montreal. The only grass meeting was 2014 Eastbourne, a match Kerber won in 3 sets. Five of the 7 matches overall were decided in straight sets.

For the most part, Kerber has had Cornet’s number over the years, and she’s easily the better player when they’re at the top of their game. Kerber has played her best recent tennis on grass, and she’s showing signs of maybe putting something together. Kerber is somebody to watch as we head into Wimbledon. 

I’ll take Kerber here and back her in straight sets to shave down the price.
