Shelby Rogers and Amanda Anisimova meet in the quarterfinal of the 2022 tennis Silicon Valley Classic.

Shelby Rogers is coming off a straight set win over Maria Sakkari that took 16 games to decide. In the victory, Rogers won 76 percent of her first serve points and 63 percent of her second serve points. Rogers won 72 percent of her total service points and converted on 4 of her 10 break points. Rogers got 68 percent of her first serves in play and hit 10 aces. The victory gives Rogers her third win over a top-10 player this year. Rogers looks to win 3 straight matches for the first time since making the semifinals in Hertogenbosch in early June. Rogers has won 6 of her last 8 matches on hard court.

Amanda Anisimova is coming off a 3 sets win over Karolina Pliskova that took 28 games to decide. In the victory, Anisimova won 68 percent of her first serve points and 57 percent of her second serve points. Anisimova won 64 percent of her total service points and converted on 4 of her 6 break points. Anisimova got 66 percent of her first serves in play and saved 1 of her 3 break points. Anisimova has now won each of her last 4 matches that have gone the distance. Anisimova has now won 11 of her last 14 matches overall. Anisimova has won 6 of her last 8 matches on hard court.

Rogers has won both meetings against Anisimova in 3 sets. The matches took place in 2021 Charleston and 2022 Miami. 

You can make a case for either player here, and Anisimova is probably in better form given what she’s done these last few months. However, Rogers is fresh off a dominating win over a top tier player, and she has the mental edge knowing she’s beaten Anisimova twice in long, competitive matches.

I have to give Rogers the edge here to make the semis.
