🇭🇷 (31) Petra Martic vs. 🇨🇿 Marketa Vondrousova
A huge opportunity presents itself to Petra Martic and Marketa Vondrousova when the pair do battle for a place in a maiden Grand Slam semi-final. Martic and Vondrousova have already broken new ground in Paris to reach the final 8 at a Grand Slam for the first time, both have been in great form over the last few months and will head into this match full of confidence, who will prevail?
I’m going to side with Petra Martic here. Surprisingly it is Vondrousova that heads into this match as the slight favourite with the bookmakers. The key stat that stands out heading into this match is Martic’s perfect 4-0 record over Vondrousova, 2 of those wins were this year and the other two were last year, so it is a very relevant head-to-head statistic. Clearly this is a match-up that Martic likes.
Martic and Vondrousova both play with a lot of variety, these two have been in the top 5 performers on clay this year so expect this to a close high quality battle. Ultimately I think the experience of Martic and her favourable head-to-head record will give her the edge. Martic has come through some tough moments this tournament whilst Vondrousova hasn’t really been tested, that may also be a factor in Martic’s favour.
