🇺🇸🌵 BNPPO19, Indian Wells – R4 Prediction
🇳🇱 (7) Kiki Bertens vs. 🇪🇸 (20) Garbine Muguruza
Expect a high quality, intense battle as Kiki Bertens and Garbine Muguruza do battle for a place in the quarter-finals at the 2019 BNP Paribas Open. Kiki Bertens has been one of the most consistent players on the WTA tour in recent times but she will be wary of the threat posed by Muguruza who is a multiple Grand Slam champion for a reason.
Whilst Muguruza’s best is certainly capable of getting the job done here, It remains to be seen if Muguruza can maintain a high enough level for long enough to defeat an opponent of Bertens’ quality. Bertens is tough, she has consistently come through tricky moments in recent times, including in a tight victory in the previous round against Johanna Konta where she saved 3 set points in first set. There is more margin and consistency to the Bertens game at the moment and I suspect she will ultimately be too solid for Muguruza, especially in the pressure moments.
