DONNA VEKIC vs MARIA SAKKARI – TIP
WTA SAN DIEGO
Interesting fact, Donna Vekic leads the head to heads 4-2. While the last of them was played in 2020, it is proof that the Croatian’s game is suitable for today’s opponent.
At her peak (2019), Vekic reached a career-high rank of 19. Whereas, at the time of writing the 26-year-old is ranked at a lowly 77. Nevertheless, that is up from a season-low of 112, and she can be rated higher
For the record, up to the end of March, Vekic had just one match. The first three months of her season were spent recovering from knee surgery!
Since playing at the French Open, Vekic won 20 of her 32 matches. One of her recent wins was against Shuai Zhang, and it took her to the QF of Tallinn. While she was beaten at that stage by Belinda Bencic, it was an improved effort!
Vekic qualified for this tournament by beating Lauren Davis and Elizabeth Mandlik. Both matches were completed in straight-sets, and she’s had two days to recover.
Meanwhile, the demise of Maria Sakkari continues. Since splitting with her ex-boyfriend, the Greek player struggled. In fact, from the 25th of March, Maria was beaten in her first match at six tournaments.
Sakkari was beaten in the second round of New York to Xiyu Wang. She lost at the same stage of the French Open, and the third round of Wimbledon to Tatjana Maria. However, her recent defeat in the final of Parma to Mayar Sherif was followed by a self-destroying Ostrava exit. At that most recent tournament, the 27-year-old was outbattled by 127-ranked Alycia Parks.
For the most part, Sakkari was reliable in the early round of tournaments. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case anymore, and she’s clearly lacking confidence. Vekic is a tough competitor, and she’s already proven herself against this opponent. Finally, and most importantly, the odds are stacked nicely and we can take the extra cover of +2.5
BET: DONNA VEKIC +2.5 games
