Wimbledon QF Prediction
🇩🇪 (11) Angelique Kerber vs. 🇷🇺 (14) Daria Kasatkina
This is a match-up where we have seen all kinds of results, commanding wins to Kerber, commanding wins to Kasatkina, tight wins to Kerber and tight wins to Kasatkina. A very competitive rivalry between two of the quickest players on tour. The H2H record is split at 3 wins apiece, Who prevails here?
I’m going to side with Kerber. Despite the even H2H record, I have always felt that this is a match-up that should favour Kerber. In a match-up that features two great defenders, it is Kerber who has the bigger weapons. The problem is that Kerber has a habit of playing poorly against Kasatkina. The conditions at Wimbledon suit Kerber, it is Kerber who has a better record on grass, in general her game is better suited to the conditions. Importantly, Kerber is more experienced, this is the biggest stage they have played on and that could be a factor.
