MARKETA VONDROUSOVA vs EKATERINA ALEXANDROVA – PICK
With the WTA being light on natural talent, Market Vondrousova could soon be back in the top ranks. For the record, the 23-year-old is down at rank 92 which compares to a career-high 14.
In 2019, Vondrousova was a finalist at the French Open. At the time, the Czech player was closing in on the top ten. However, a bad wrist injury that needed an operation stopped her progress. In fact, Marketa played just two more tournaments, and she missed the 2nd half of the season!
Another four months were missed in 2020, and her results suffered as a consequence of another injury. However, in 2021 she bounced back to win 34 of her 54 matches, and she reached the semi-final of five tournaments! Unfortunately, 2022 was marred by another 6.5-month absence, albeit she won 21 of her 29 matches.
At her best, Vondrousova has beaten most of the top players. Furthermore, she collected a silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics and won close to $5 million in prize money.
What we like about Marketa is her playing style. She’s got more weapons in her arsenal than most players, and she’s great at camouflaging shots. Additionally, Vondrousova is the best returner on the circuit, and it’s that which challenges her opponent’s serve.
On the back of last year’s 35/18, Ekaterina Alexandrova starts the week on a career-high rank of 19. During 2022, the now 28-year-old won two tournaments in Hertogenbosch, and Seoul, and made the semi-final of Madrid.
Being analytical, we need to point out the fact that Alexandrova is better on other surfaces. While her average win rate is 63.4% she’s just 55.8%. In comparison, Vondrousova won 63.4% of her hard-court matches which includes last year’s 11/4. Finally, the younger player has a solid record in Australia, and she will want to make up for the lost time!
There is no doubt in our minds, Vondrousova is the better player. She’s equipped for the surface and will be pouncing on her opponent’s serve.
