Serena Williams v Ekaterina Alexandrova Head to Head

The two players have never met before on the tour.

Alexandrova, with a Solid Performance

The 24-year-old Alexandrova started in the Rogers Cup as a qualifier and did a commendable job to reach the main draw. From that point on, she has defeated Misaki Doi and Shuai Zhang to reach the third round.

Ekaterina’s win-loss record this season is at 21-19 and the year has largely been marked by bouts of defeats. Seeking to reach her second singles final on the tour – the first one being the Linz Open last year, the young Russian has been highly erratic in the season.

For instance, she played in six tournaments and got out of it, without winning a single match. Then, she reached the quarterfinal in the Libema Open and WTA Eastbourne, defeating the likes of Belinda Bencic, Jelena Ostapenko, and Elise Mertens in the quest. In fact, her wins in Toronto make them the first ones since that run in Eastbourne.

Williams, Looking Dangerous as Usual

Fresh off her defeat in the final to Simona Halep in Wimbledon, Williams is looking more than determined to make amends for it. She has a decent win-rate as of now and definitely looks primed to go the distance in Toronto.

After spending the first half of the season battling with injuries and the resulting inconsistency, she put up a commanding show in London and downplayed any fitness concerns. In fact, Serena appears to be in the best of health – something that even the strongest of the players would most likely dread.

To put things in perspective, she defeated Mertens in the opener without as much as breaking a sweat with 6-3, 6-3.

Williams v Alexandrova Prediction & Tips

The two players are not only separated by a massive difference in experience and tennis wisdom, but also by their respective forms and momentum. As talented as Alexandrova may be, it will be difficult for her to defeat Williams – a player who is becoming more and more formidable with every match she plays. Expect the American to wrap this one in straight sets.

Tip: Over 16.5 games in the match. (888Sport)
