Kiki Bertens v Jasmine Paolini Head to Head
The two players have never met before on the WTA Tour.
Bertens on a Confident Roll
Bertens so far has been absolutely remarkable in Palermo, dispatching her opponents without any difficulties. Starting with Ekaterine Gorgodze in the opener with 6-0, 6-1, World No. 5 then defeated Aleksandra Krunic with a very similar score.
The Dutchwoman has already won two titles this season and now looks primed to add another one to the tally. It has been the season for her, as she gained prominence on the back of her superb performance on the WTA Tour. With winning runs in Madrid and St. Petersburg and penultimate-round runs in other big events, she quickly cracked the top five.
Bertens has also been clinical in the sense of maintaining a stellar record against many big guns on the circuit this year. The likes of Simona Halep, Petra Kvitova, and Naomi Osaka have already fallen to the mighty Dutchwoman. With that kind of form, it will be hard for anyone to stop her.
Paolini with a Defining Run
The 23-year-old Jasmine Paolini has been quite active on the scene in 2019, playing in a mix of ITF and WTA events. While she hasn’t been that phenomenal in the either, her stint in the ITF half saw her play with much more finesse and confidence. She has already won two titles there and looks to do the same on the WTA Tour now.
She last played in Lausanne where she lost to Alize Cornet in the second round as a qualifier. In Palermo, she got a main draw ticket and has done well to not squander this rare opportunity. So far, she has defeated Laura Siegemund and Irina-Camelia Begu – two experienced players with some grit.
Bertens v Paolini Prediction and Tips
Bertens should get this match with a comfortable win. She has the experience and momentum needed to get past someone like Paolini who is ranked in the late 140s. Expect no surprises here.
Tip: Under 16.5 games in the match. (888Sport)
