Daria Saville versus Petra Kvitova head to head
Saville leads 3-2 over Kvitova and most recently defeated her at WTA Beijing 2018. She has won three of her last four meetings – including the one on clay in Madrid in 2016.
Saville surpasses Grammatikopoulou
Daria Saville started her season in Paris with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Valentini Grammatikopoulou of Greece.
She now finds herself in the second round of the French Open again, hoping to get her best results in the Slam.
It’s been a great season for the 28-year-old as she continues her resurgence on the WTA Tour. Having lost most of her form and spirit over the past few seasons, Saville seems wonderfully positioned to return to her former heights.
She started the year outside the top 400 and now finds herself at number 127. Saville had some impressive runs, including reaching the quarterfinals in Guadalajara and Miami Open, and the fourth round in Indian Wells.
In these tournaments she has beaten the likes of Emma Raducanu, Ons Jabeur, Shuai Zhang and Elise Mertens. As a former world No. 20, Daria is more than capable of throwing up a few surprises here as well.
Kvitova KOs Bondar
Petra Kvitova wants to reach her first final at Roland Garros. The best she’s done is reaching the semifinals twice – most recently the 2020 edition. However, last year she crashed herself in round two.
It’s been a sloppy year for the former world number two, who now finds herself ranked 34th on the Tour. Their record for 2022 currently stands at 10-11 with just a couple of recognizable runs under their belt.
The 32-year-old lost her opening games in Charleston, Stuttgart and Madrid. Kvitova had a much better time on the hard courts – particularly in Miami and Dubai, where she reached the quarterfinals. Apart from that, the Czech was sent off in the early games.
Kvitova v Saville prediction and tip
Normally, Kvitova would start as a favorite – in fact, the bookies are counting on her to win this match at 4/9. However, given her erratic form, inconsistency and propensity to lose to under-ranked players like Priscilla Hon, Sorana Cirstea, Irina-Camelia Begu, Magdalena Frech and Jil Teichmann, Saville’s chances cannot be ignored.
In a way, this is a balanced affair that can swing both ways. But for those looking for a safer option, 20.5+ games is the way to go.
