Match Predict – Handicap (-2) for Pegula
Pegula’s performance has been more consistent and even throughout the season. In Dubai, she spent much less energy to reach the semi-finals than her opponent. Moreover, in January in Melbourne, Jessica beat Barbora in two sets. We don’t expect a rematch from the Czech tennis player today.

Preliminary review and pre-match prediction for Jessica Pegula vs Barbora Krejcikova
Jessica Pegula has had a steady start to the season. Since the beginning of the year, the American tennis player has played 16 matches with 13 victories.
Jessica started the tournament with a win over Victoria Tomova (6:2, 5:7, 6:1). Contrary to predictions, Jessica needed an extra set.
In the next match, Pegula defeated Romanian Ana Bogdan (6:4, 6:3).
In the quarter-finals, Jessica was to face Karolina Pliskova, but the Czech was unable to appear due to injury.
Pegula reached the finals last week in Doha and got back into the top three. In the deciding match, the American lost to Iga Swiatek (3-6, 0-6).
Jessica Pegula has won eight straight at the WTA 1000 tournament level.
Barbora, meanwhile, had the biggest surprise of the week so far. In the quarterfinals, the Czech defeated Australian Open-2023 champion Aryna Sabalenka.
That, of course, was almost a heroic feat. Krejcikova dropped the first set with a score of 0:6. In the second one was losing with a score of 1:3, but eventually she came through with a huge upset (0:6, 7:6, 6:1).
In the decisive set, Aryna played as if she didn’t need anything at all. Krejcikova instantly punished her opponent for this attitude.
Before that Barbora defeated Irina Begu (6-4, 6-2), Daria Kasatkina (6-4, 4-6, 7-5) and Petra Kvitova (6-3, 6-2).
Krejčíková reached the semi-finals for the second time in Dubai. In the 2021 season, the Czech lost in the decider to Garbine Muguruza.
In four of Krejcikova’s last five matches against better-ranked opponents, more than 20 games have been played.
