WTA Madrid Open, Third Round: Garcia v Kvitova

Due to start at 7 pm.

Garcia 3.40, Kvitova 1.40

Head to heads are 3-3.  They last played in March this year on a hard court in Miami. Kvitova won in straight sets. Their last 4 matches have been won alternatively so today is Garcia’s turn!

Overall results favour Kvitova in the last 12 months and also in 2019. Her clay results have also been stronger.

Kvitova is the defending champion this week after she beat Kiki Bertens in 3 sets in last year’s final. She is having an excellent season and has won 26 of her 32 matches. She is unbeaten on clay in 2019 and won the title in Stuttgart 2 weeks ago. She has not lost a set so far in the tournament.

Garcia has not made her best start to a season. She has won 10 of her 19 matches. Third round finishes at the Australian Open and Miami are her only highlights before this tournament. She has 2 decent wins so far this week beating Su-Wei Hsieh in straight sets and Sonora Cirstea in 3.

I don’t think Garcia is going to get her turn. Back Azarenka if she goes a break behind or if she loses set 1.
