Marketa Vondrousova and Bianca Andreescu meet in the second round of the 2023 tennis Italian Open. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

Marketa Vondrousova is coming off a 3 sets win over Kaia Kanepi that took 24 games to decide. In the victory, Vondrousova won 59 percent of her first serve points and 49 percent of her second serve points. Vondrousova won 55 percent of her total service points and converted on 8 of her 14 break points. Vondrousova got 59 percent of her first serves in play and hit 4 aces. Vondrousova has won 6 of her last 10 matches that have gone the distance. Vondrousova is now 8-3 in her career at the Italian Open and has a chance for back to back wins in a single tournament for the first time since Miami. Vondrousova has won 7 of her last 10 matches on clay court.

Bianca Andreescu lost her opening match in Madrid, which was also her first match since Miami. So, Andreescu has played just 3 sets of tennis in about a month and a half, and she had issues with her serve, giving her opponent 15 break chances. Andreescu is still trying to work her way back from injuries, and it may take even more time without consistent reps. The good news for Andreescu is she made the quarterfinals of the Italian Open last year, so her confidence should be up. Andreescu has split her last 8 matches on clay court. 

There’s no match history between these 2 players.

Vondrousova should be favored as she’s playing the better, more consistent tennis, and she’s no stranger to success in this event. However, Vondrousova also had 13 double faults in her opening match, and that’s not ideal heading into this spot. If Andreescu can just keep the ball in play, she’ll have her chances to steal this match. We’re getting almost two times our money with the better player when both are right.

I’ll take a shot with Andreescu.
