ANNA SCHMIEDLOVA vs CLAIRE LIU – PREVIEW
WTA BUDAPEST QUARTER-FINAL
Two players ranked in the ’80s are going head-to-head in this 3rd quarter-final of Budapest.
At this year’s Indian Wells, Claire Liu won her only meeting against Anna Schmiedlova. Incidentally, the match was played on a hard court and ended 7/6 6/3.
A stat and profile check reveals both players are better suited to playing on clay. On that note, Liu won 67.9% of her matches on this surface, although she’s just 6-7 this year! In comparison, Schmiedlova claimed 65.3% wins on clay, and she’s 9-5 in 2023!
In the first round of Budapest, Schmiedlova needed just 1:19 to send Polina Kudermetova (6/2 6/0) packing. Next up was Tamara Korpatsch, that match went the distance (4/6 6/2 6/3) in a time of 2:27.
For the record, the Slovakian last won a clay tournament (Belgrade) in 2021. However, Anna did at least make it to the 4th round of this year’s French Open, in which she beat Veronika Kudermetova.
After stuttering through most of the campaign, Liu is doing better at this tournament. The week started with a win over Louisa Chirico, and she followed up with another against Yulia Putintseva.
From a form value perspective, Liu seemed to benefit from Chirico being injured. Whereas, her win over an out-of-sorts Putintseva shouldn’t be overrated!
In conclusion, bookmakers are entitled to have these players closely matched. Nevertheless, the betting market is making Liu the favorite and we disagree. In fact, we believe that 28-year-old Schmiedlova is stronger mentally. Furthermore, she knows how to win tournaments and won’t suffer from stage fright.
BET: ANNA SCHMIEDLOVA
