Maria Sakkari vs Emma Raducanu: Prediction and Betting Tips
Maria Sakkari chasing her first Grand Slam final
Maria Sakkari’s amazing season continues as she reached her fifth semi-final of the year on Wednesday night in New York. However, the 12th seed couldn’t win any of those semi-finals. Thus, she now has her eyes on a maiden Grand Slam final after her loss at the French Open semis.
During her quarter-final clash with Karolina Pliskova, Sakkari completely dominated the match. Notably, the Greek put on an amazing display of every aspect of her game. Firstly, her service was in the best possible shape as she didn’t face a single breakpoint. Secondly, her groundstrokes were right on track handing her 23 winners.
Moreover, having a tough draw en route to the last four didn’t hold Sakkari back. In fact, she eliminated three top ten seeds on her way, Kvitova, Bencic, and Pliskova. The 26-year-old is in the best shape of her career and looks determined to reach her first final.
Sakkari key stats
- In her last match, Sakkari won 92% of the points on her first serve
- The Greek played on average 22 games per match at the US Open
- Four is the average number of double faults per match by Sakkari in five matches
Emma Raducanu’s amazing run moves on
Incredible stuff from Emma Raducanu as she became the first qualifier to reach the US Open semi-final. Besides, the 18-year-old didn’t lose a single set in her eight matches including the three qualifiers.
Having a relatively easier path in the draw than Sakkari, Raducanu had her first real test against Bencic. However, a straight-sets win against the Olympic Gold medalist showed the Brit’s true character. Despite going down a break early in the match, Raducanu still managed to steak the first set.
In the second set, the 18-year-old grew in confidence and there was nothing that could hold her back. Indeed, she held her serve five times in the second set and broke Bencic in the fifth game. Consequently, Raducanu clinched her first-ever Grand Slam final four appearance, and definitely her ambition doesn’t end there.
Raducanu Key Stats
- The Brit won 74% of the points on her first serve at the US Open
- Raducanu had on average 1.4 double faults per match
- 16.8 is the average number of games played by Raducanu in eight matches
Maria Sakkari vs Emma Raducanu Prediction
Despite having a lower ranking than all of her opponents in the main draw, Raducanu was the favorite in three of her matches. Also, she won the two matches in which she was the underdog. Never count this girl off.
On the other hand, Sakkari wasn’t the favorite to win against Bencic and still caused an upset. Now, the bookies are favoring Sakkari to win with odds of 1.61 at Vbet. Raducanu’s odds of winning is 2.17. Ultimately, it will be a close match and both girls will fight for it.
As for our prediction, we will go with the total double faults in this match. Considering their average double faults in the tournament, we think under 7.5 total is a good deal.
