Andrea Petkovic – Mihaela Buzarnescu Match Prediction | 23-08-2019

Williams then claimed hard-fought three-set wins in the first round in Eastbourne later that year and in the Luxembourg semifinals in 2012. But Petkovic emerged a 6-1, 3-6, 7-5 in their last clash which came in Stanford in 2014 in the quarterfinals. Petkovic won their first encounter when injury forced Williams to retire after one game of their third-round clash at the Australian Open in 2011. This will be the fifth meeting between Williams and Petkovic in a head-to-head currently tied 2-2.

Mihaela Buzarnescu - Daria Kasatkina, WTA San Jose, 1st roundBuzarnescu is #56 on WTA ranking in this moment. She is playing also bad in this season. Buzarnescu didnt had some good results in this season. Kasatkina last match had at Wimbledon, where she lost in 1st round vs Tomljanovic. Kasatkina is #40 on WTA ranking right now She has 7 wins and 13 losses in this season. I think that Buzarnescu is better player right now, so I expect from her to win. Her last match was at WTA Lausanne, where Buzarnescu lost in 2nd round vs Ferro. She has 10 wins and 23 losses in this season.

She has had the better results so far this season and the slow, gritty court surface combined with the thin desert air should benefit her powerful game. As a result, expect this to be a high-quality match. But both still have the quality to deliver excellent performances, particularly when on the big stage. Williams should go into it feeling the more confident. Expect her to take advantage. Both Williams and Petkovic are approaching the end of their careers, Williams possibly imminently. Williams in two.

This match should present an entertaining clash of styles between the powerful Williams and the more-defensively minded Petkovic. The American, at her best, was able to dominate the sport due to her ability to hit through even the most accomplished defenders whilst also being impressively mobile herself. Now 38, some of her power has faded and she is at least half a step slower than she was in her prime, but she remains a formidable opponent for anyone.

Polona Hercog: results and record

On court the two are evenly matched. Ferro is four years younger and Golubic has, in the past, been ranked slightly higher. The one time the two met, Ferro narrowly defeated Golubic, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 in Australia. The two women, number 73 and 72 in the world respectively, have little to distinguish them. Ferros victory in Lusanne in July is a good indication of the current strength of her game. Much like Karolina Muchova and Viktoria Kuzmova, Viktorija Golubic and Fiona Ferro are ranking-mates.

However, since ending that boycott, Williams has enjoyed some fine results, including reaching the semifinals last year. In one of the picks of the first-round action in Indian Wells, the USAs Venus Williams will take on Andrea Petkovic. But she will need to be at her best against the wily Petkovic. Williams has never won in Indian Wells, having boycotted the tournament alongside her sister Serena for much of her career due to allegations of racist abuse suffered in 2001.

Petkovic also reached the semifinal stage here in 2015, losing to fellow German and eventual champion, Kerber. The 2014 Charleston Champion Andrea Petkovic is making her sixth appearance in the tournament where she ended her 35-month title drought (since May 2011) to win her third WTA title. She went on to win another (clay) title, at Bad Gastein (Austria), that year. However, Petkovic is unable to cross the second round in the last two seasons, albeit losing to tough opponents, Sevastova (2017) and Puig (2016). Currently ranked at #111, Petkovic is making a Charleston appearance with the lowest rank since her debut in 2013 (#139), when she was making a comeback from nine-month injury break (January-October 2012) and reached as far as the round of 16.

But in the third round, top seed Simona Halep proved far too strong, delivering an accomplished performance to win 6-2, 6-3 and end Williams tournament. There, she battled into the third round with impressive wins over 25th seed Mihaela Buzarnescu and Alize Cornet of France. Williams began her 2019 season with a run to the Brisbane quarterfinals where she lost 6-7, 6-1, 6-3 to the talented young Canadian Bianca Andreescu before heading to Melbourne Park for the Australian Open.

She was then forced to retire from her first-round match against Irina-Camelia Begu at the Australian Open, despite having won the first set. She returned to action for the St Petersburg qualifying but was again unable to reach the main draw. Petkovics year began with an unsuccessful attempt to qualify for the Brisbane International. In Budapest at the Hungarian Open, she scored a dominant 6-1, 6-0 win over Ana Bogdan in the first round, but fell 2-6, 5-7 to Anastasia Potapova in the second.
