Follow on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Barbora Krejcikova’s brave run continues

World number 33 Barbora Krejcikova reached her first-ever Grand Slam semi-final after beating teenage sensation Coco Gauff in straight sets. The Czech continued her great run at Roland Garros as she proves match after match that she is not winning by chance.

Krejcikova had never made it past qualification in Wimbledon or the US Open and this year had reached the second round of the Australian Open. She was the underdog in her game against Gauff but the 25-year-old defied the odds and delivered another winning performance.

Since losing the first set of the first match, Barbora hasn’t conceded any in the next four matches. Against Gauff, the American was serving for the first set at 5-3 but the Czech managed to break back and won it in the tiebreak. In the second set, the 17-year-old collapsed and Krejcikova took advantage and finished the match in two sets.

Confidence rising as Sakkari reaches the semis

We knew Maria Sakkari would be a very tough opponent for the defending champion Iga Swiatek but the greek proved to be much more than that and went on to win in straight sets after some very aggressive play from the baseline.

Sakkari had a nervy start losing her serve to go down 0-2 in the first set. But the Greek quickly bounced back and after breaking back Swiatek’s serve she went on to win the first set 6-4. 

In the second set, Sakkari continued to control the rallies from the baseline and took advantage of Swiatek’s pain in her leg and low first-serve percentage and went on to break her in the first game and held her serve to close the second set with 6-4.

Key Points

  • Krejcikova has played 20 games per match in the French Open
  • Sakkari has played 20.6 games per match in the French Open
  • Krejcikova has hit an average of 24.8 winners per match
  • Sakkari has hit an average of 23.2 winners per match

Barbora Krejcikova vs Maria Sakkari Prediction

Both of these players’ matches in the quarter-finals were very exciting and both of them won their matches against the odds. In fact, in most matches they played in the French Open this year they were the underdogs.

Sakkari is the favorite to win with the bookies and we understand why. The Greek is looking very solid and has an incredible fitness level and is dictating the points with her amazing movement on the court.

Krejickova has played the best tennis of her life in Paris as its the furthest she has reached in any major tournament. 

We think Sakkari is better equipped and has all the important aspects to come out victorious from this match.
