Camila Osorio and Beatriz Haddad Maia meet in the fourth round of the 2023 tennis Italian Open. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Camila Osorio is coming off a straight set win over Caroline Garcia that took 20 games to decide. In the victory, Osorio won 70 percent of her first serve points and 46 percent of her second serve points. Osorio won 63 percent of her total service points and converted on 3 of her 6 break points. Osorio got 69 percent of her first serves in play and hit 2 aces. Osorio snagged her second career win over a top-10 player, and she’s now won 9 of her last 11 matches if you include qualifying and challenger play. Six of Osorio’s last 7 wins have been decided in straight sets. Osorio looks to make her first career WTA 1000 quarterfinal appearance. Osorio has won 8 of her last 10 matches on clay court.
Beatriz Haddad Maia is coming off a straight set win over Magda Linette that took 22 games to decide. In the victory, Haddad Maia won 63 percent of her first serve points and 75 percent of her second serve points. Haddad Maia won 68 percent of her total service points and converted on 4 of her 6 break points. Haddad Maia got 58 percent of her first serves in play and saved 3 of 5 break points. Haddad Maia looks to win 3 straight matches for the first time since Abu Dhabi back in February. Haddad Maia looks to make her second career WTA 1000 quarterfinal and first since last year's Canadian Open. Haddad Maia has won 6 of her last 10 matches on clay court.
There’s no match history between these 2 players.
Nerves are likely going to play a role here, as neither player has a ton of experience in these sorts of matches. Haddad Maia gets the slight edge with experience. However, Osorio is playing some of her best tennis in recent memory, and she’ll have a chance to keep things going if she continues to serve at a high level. You have to be impressed with what we’re seeing from the young Colombian lately.
I’ll take a stab with Osorio and the plus money.
