Caroline Wozniacki v Katerina Siniakova Head to Head
Wozniacki holds a 3-1 lead over Siniakova, last defeating the 23-year-old in the China Open itself last season. As for Siniakova’s sole win over the Dane, it came in Bastad the year before in the final of the tournament.
Wozniacki, Slowly Fighting her Way Up
Caroline Wozniacki started the year as World No. 2 but with time, her form has dipped significantly on account of many injuries. At the moment, she is on the verge of exiting the top 20 and her run Beijing will play a big role in that.
With a win-loss tally of 16-14, the best Wozniacki has delivered this season is the runner-up feat in Charleston. As for the rest of the events, it has been a series of early, consecutive exits for the three-time Grand Slam finalist. On the back of an equally uneventful stint in the US Open series, Wozniacki arrived in China to start her Asian Swing.
In Wuhan, she fell in the opener to Su-Wei Hsieh in three sets. In Beijing, however, she has so far looked fairly confident as she moved past Lauren Davis and Christina McHale in straight sets. It is worth mentioning that these wins have been among her most convincing victories in a significantly long time.
Siniakova, Battling Form Woes
Katerina Siniakova is pretty much in the same boat as her opponent at the moment. Despite having a glittering year in the doubles circuit, she hasn’t been able to replicate the same kind of success on the singles circuit.
With 20 wins and 26 losses, the best she has done is reaching the semifinal in Bronx and Nuremberg. Apart from these events, she also enjoyed a breathtaking run in the French Open where she reached the fourth round after knocking out Maria Sakkari and Naomi Osaka.
The Czech arrived in Asia on the back of a pretty disappointing run. It continued along the same lines in Guangzhou and Wuhan before she finally found some reprieve here in Beijing. Starting with Xiyu Wang, she then defeated Jelena Ostapenko in straight sets to set up this clash with Wozniacki.
Wozniacki v Siniakova Tips & Predictions
Wozniacki will start this match as the favourite to win but given her recent form, it may be demanding battle for her. She isn’t entirely immune to facing and defeating underdogs and that is something that Siniakova can capitalize on.
