Daria Saville and Rebecca Marino meet in the quarterfinal of the 2022 tennis Citi Open.
Daria Saville is coming off a straight set win over Jessica Pegula that took 22 games to decide. In the victory, Saville won 66 percent of her first serve points and 56 percent of her second serve points. Saville won 63 percent of her total service points and converted on 3 of her 6 break points. Saville got 66 percent of her first serves in play and saved 9 of her 10 break points. Saville now has 13 career wins over top-10 players, and 2 of those wins have come this year. Saville looks to win 3 straight matches on the main tour for the first time since making the quarterfinals in Miami. Saville has won 8 of her last 10 matches on hard court.
Rebecca Marino is coming off a 3 sets win over Andrea Petkovic that took 25 games to decide. In the victory, Marino won 73 percent of her first serve points and 49 percent of her second serve points. Marino won 64 percent of her total service points and converted on 3 of her 10 break points. Marino got 63 percent of her first serves in play and saved 8 of her 9 break points. Including qualifying matches, Marino has seen each of her last 5 matches go the distance. Marino has a chance to win 3 straight matches on the main tour for the first time this year. Marino has won 6 of her last 7 matches on hard court.
There’s no match history between these 2 players.
Both of these players have been up and down this year for the most part, but it’s fair to say Saville has had the better season and is the more trustworthy player overall. With a couple wins over top-10 players this year and her best work done on hard court, this is a match Saville should win.
I like Saville to make the semifinals.
