Paula Badosa versus Veronika Kudermetova head to head
Kudermetova leads 3-2 head-to-head which includes a win in the 2019 qualifiers at Indian Wells. This year, Badosa has won both meetings, winning at Indian Wells and Madrid, both in straight sets.
Badosa survives fear
World No. 4 Paula Badosa was stretched by Strasbourg finalist Kaja Juvan in the second round of the French Open on Thursday, but the third seed survived to march on.
Badosa, who made her debut at Roland Garros in the fourth round in 2020 and reached the quarter-finals last year, is now one win away from a third straight round of 16 at the clay-court major.
On Thursday, the 24-year-old got a tough fight with the Slovenian in the first two sets. Badosa had gone up to a 5-2 lead in the second before Juvan came back to level. She eventually lost the set but forced the deciding set with a solid second set. She even started the third with a break of serve, but then Badosa took control and raced to a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win in two hours and 17 minutes.
Badosa converted 6 of 9 break points and saved half of the eight she faced in the match.
The Spaniard, who won the Sydney Tennis Classic this year and reached the semifinals in Indian Wells and Stuttgart and the last eight in Miami and Charleston, started her campaign with a straight set win over France’s Fiona Ferro. She hopes to continue her good work in the third round.
Kudermetova overcomes the qualification
After beating China’s Zhu Lin in three sets in the opening round, world No. 29 Vernika Kudermetova edged out Serbian qualifier Aleksandra Krunić in straight sets in Thursday’s second round.
Kudermetova served 8 aces and beat 22 winners to win the contest 6-3, 6-3. In the 69-minute contest, the Russian was able to break the Serb’s serve four times while she was broken just once in the game.
It had taken Kudermetova two hours and 22 minutes to defeat Zhu 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 in the first round.
Thanks to Thursday’s victory, Kudermetova is in the third round of the French Open for the second time at the fourth attempt. She has never made it to the fourth round of a major. Can she do that on Saturday?
A semi-finalist at the Australian Open, Kudermetova has been in sensational form this year, finishing second in Melbourne, Dubai and Istanbul. She also reached four doubles finals that year, winning in Dubai and Rome and finishing second in Qatar and Miami.
Badosa v Kudermetova prediction and tip
Badosa has easily won both previous meetings this year. But given Kudermetova’s form this season, she will be wary of the Russian. Expect fierce competition with Badosa coming out on top.
The French Open 2022 will be held from May 22nd to June 5th. You can watch and bet on these games here. Get your latest premium tennis predictions here.
