Petra Martic v Kristina Mladenovic Head to Head
In the four times the two ladies have met, Martic has won on three of them. She has dominated their last three meetings, starting with the 2018 Miami Open. They have also crossed paths twice this year in Istanbul and French Open, where the Croat sailed to the win.
Mladenovic, with a Promising Run
There is no doubt in the tennis abilities of Kristina Mladenovic – she is prolific doubles player who won the French Open with Timea Babos this season, along with a few other accomplishments on the doubles circuit.
But as a singles player, Mladenovic hasn’t had this promising of a run. With a strike-rate of 22-21, she has spent a majority of her season attempting to move past the early rounds. There were a few instances where she did reach the quarterfinal, but they were in the low-tier International tournaments.
Of course, there exist a few exceptions to this, including her current run in Zhengzhou. Right from the beginning, she has been nothing but impressive and fabulous. Starting with Yingying Duan, she moved past the likes of Caroline Garcia and Elina Svitolina to reach her maiden semifinal on the tour.
In addition to Svitolina, the Frenchwoman has had the pleasure of defeating a few other top players too. In New York, she knocked out Angelique Kerber in the opener while in the Italian Open, she defeated Ashleigh Barty and Belinda Bencic.
Martic, Looking Formidable as Usual
Martic has proven herself to be a rather consistent player with signs of great potential. In the US Open, she reached the fourth round while in the Madrid Open and French Open, she went as far as the quarterfinal. The Croat also enjoyed a good semifinal run in Birmingham.
Now, in the Asian swing, she has started off on the same note. Looking to better her previous results, the number seven seed has been on a mission to deliver some scintillating wins and improve her ranking.
Starting with Jasmine Paolini in the opener, she defeated Fiona Ferro and Aryna Sabalenka to reach the semifinal. Clearly, she has proven herself to be a worthy contender who is more than capable of going the distance.
Martic v Mladenovic Tips & Predictions
Martic will start this match as the favourite to win. Despite Mladenovic’s recent form, it is the Croat who is more refined for the singles circuit. However, given how the things have gone so far in the tournament, anything can happen. All in all, we are in for a beautiful game of tennis.
