Aryna Sabalenka v Carla Suarez Navarro Head to Head
The two ladies have met twice on the WTA Tour, both of which came in 2018. Sabalenka has won on both the instances, last defeating the Spaniard in the Wuhan Open.
Suarez Navarro on the Hunt for a Resurgence
Just three years ago, Suarez Navarro was a top 10 player, riding high with confidence and an impeccable form. Despite no big titles to her name, she established herself as a prolific player mainly on account of her consistency.
However, a lot has changed since then. The Spaniard has dropped out of the top flight and has been trying to make her way into the top ever since. This season, her win-loss tally stands at 15-14, struggling a lot with her form.
Among her best runs were the quarterfinal feat in Dubai and the fourth-round run in the Wimbledon. To make it more interesting, she hasn’t reached a final since the last year’s Connecticut Open, where she lost to none other than Sabalenka in the final.
As for her run in San Jose so far, she has breezed into the quarterfinal with a couple of clinical wins over Magda Linette and Bethanie Mattek-Sands.
Sabalenka, Looking Dangerous as Usual
At 5’11 with a rather domineering build, Aryna Sabalenka has always held a certain level of advantage over her opponents in many matches. Perhaps, this, along with her brilliant tennis abilities, is the reason why the 21-year-old has quickly cracked into the top 10.
Having enjoyed a bye into the second round in the Silicon Valley Classic, the number two seed knocked out Coco Vandeweghe in the opener with ease.
Even though she has had her struggles with form in the recent weeks, most notably in the Wimbledon when she crashed out in the first round to Magdalena Rybarikova, Sabalenka has still managed to assert herself as a formidable opponent on the tour.
She has also had a couple of good tournaments like the WTA Strasbourg and Eastbourne, where she reached the penultimate rounds.
Sabalenka v Suarez Navarro Prediction and Tips
Suarez Navarro is an experienced player who is more than capable of knocking out Sabalenka. She has a decent tally against the top 10 players and has the necessary skill set to deliver this upset. The question remains whether she has the consistency and grit to pull this off. With every game, the Belarusian is becoming more and more dangerous, and it will take a lot from Navarro to pull this win. Expect an entertaining affair here.
Tip: Over 16.5 games in the match. (888Sport)
