Petra Kvitova v Anastasija Sevastova Head to Head
The two players have met thrice on the WTA Tour and currently, Sevastova leads Kvitova by 2-1. However, what’s interesting here is that all three of those matches took place more than eight years ago. None of those meetings came on clay courts.
They last met in the WTA Eastbourne in 2011, where the Czech prevailed in three sets.
Kvitova Greets Stuttgart with a Strong Win
Kvitova kicked off her clay swing on an excellent note, with a 6-1, 6-4 victory over the Belgian qualifier Greetje Minnen. It was a clinical performance by the Czech where she looked comfortable throughout the match.
Right now, the reigning Madrid Open champion is one of the most consistent players on the tour. Except for the Indian Wells Open and WTA Brisbane, Kvitova has made it to the quarterfinal at the very least in all of the tournaments this year.
She was also the runner-up in Melbourne and Dubai, and most recently, reached the quarterfinal in the Miami Open. Her work rate has been beyond remarkable. Following her return to the tour from her knife injury, she has won seven titles. Given the way she is performing right now, it is a matter of time before she becomes World No. 1.
Sevastova’s Mediocre Form
Sevastova, who last year won the Bucharest Open and later reached the final in the China Open, has had a very average season so far. While the World No. 13 has been quite active on the tour, she hasn’t had a significant breakthrough that would propel her into the top 10.
A lack of consistency has been a key part of her form this season. For instance, she reached the quarterfinal in Brisbane and later, made it to the fourth round in the Australian Open. These were the highlights of her season so far.
In the Middle-East swing, she lost her opening matches while in the Sunshine Doubles, she reached as far as the third round. She last played in Charleston where she lost to Jessica Pegula in the opening game.
Kvitova v Sevastova Predictions & Tips
The Czech will start as the favourite here, given her recent form and momentum. However, she is not entirely invincible as shown by the likes of Belinda Bencic, Donna Vekic, and Anett Kontveit. Sevastova can seek some inspiration from these wins to put up a fight.
