Barbora Krejcikova Form


Barbora Krejcikova is in career best form. She reached the Dubai final in March to break into the top 50.

The 25-year-old failed to reach the quarter-finals in her first three clay court tournaments in Europe. She has been on fire since then, winning 12 of her last 13 matches.

Krejcikova won her first WTA Tour singles title in Strasbourg. She beat Ekaterina Alexandrova in the quarter-finals and Sorana Cirstea 6-3 6-3 in the final.

The World No.33 kept that form going at the French Open. She beat Kristyna Pliskova 5-7 6-4 6-2 in the first round but hasn’t lost a set since then, beating Ekaterina Alexandrova, World No.6 Elina Svitolina, Sloane Stephens and Cori Gauff in straight sets.

Maria Sakkari Form


Maria Sakkari’s best performance in 2021 came in Miami where she reached the semi-finals. It was her last tournament before the clay court swing.

The 25-year-old failed to reach the quarter-finals in three straight tournaments on clay. She lost to Petra Kvitova in Stuttgart, Karolina Muchova in Madrid and Cori Gauff in Rome.

Sakkari put that behind her at the French Open. She beat Katarina Zavatska and Jasmine Paolini in straight sets before a 7-5 6-7 6-2 win against World No.15 Elise Mertens in the third round.

She then beat two top 10 players to reach the semi-finals. Sakkari beat Sofia Kenin 6-1 6-3 and Iga Swiatek 6-4 6-4, winning 83% of her 1st serves, converting 3/8 break points and saving 1/6 break points.

Verdict

Barbora Krejcikova is in career best form and playing with no fear. Maria Sakkari has hit form at the right time and playing with plenty of confidence.

With little separating these players in terms of form, I am backing Krejcikova who has a 2-0 record against Sakkari. This should be a close match that goes over 21.5 total games.
