Tereza Martincova v Leonie Kung Head to Head
While these two have never faced off in the main draw of any tournaments, they did meet at the qualifiers of the Palermo Open where Martincova defeated Kung in three sets.
Martincova Breaks into Top 100
Ranked 158th in the world at the start of the 2020 season, Martincova has slowly crept up the rankings and she will begin the new week by breaking into the top 100 for the first time ever. And while at 26 years of age, that might be a tad later than when most top tennis players have reached that kind of a ranking, Martincova would be chuffed at her recent form.
It’s been the kind of a start to the season she would have always wanted.
After failing to qualify for the Australian Open, Martincova featured in a couple of ITF competitions before turning her attention towards the Lyon Open. As a qualifier she managed to make it to the second round there.
At the WTA Dubai, she won another couple of rounds of qualifiers to make it to the main draw before stunning Kiki Bertens in the second round there. And a second round at the St. Petersburg Open and another such appearance in Miami have now meant she will begin the new week ranked 100th in the world.
What’s interesting to note is Martincova is equally proficient on clay as she has been on hard court surfaces, which should give her the necessary confidence adding to solid performance that has been on display this season.
Kung Looking to Make a Transition to Top Level
20-year-old Kung’s career-best ranking is 144th and currently perched 10 places below that, she would hope to deliver a much better showing than she did earlier earlier this season. Because other than making it to the main draw at the Guadalajara Open and winning a main draw match there, she has found the going very tough.
This includes a failure to qualify for the Australian Open, a similar result at the Lyon Open and then losses in the qualifiers of the Monterrey Open and the Miami Open as well after the second round appearance at the Guadalajara Open.
Where it gets doubly difficult for Kung is clay isn’t her most preferred surface and alongside the kind of performances this season on hard courts, she would have to strive really hard to get herself out of the current mire.
Martincova v Kung Prediction and Tip
Martincova’s form and her overall record on clay make her a strong favourite to win this in straight sets.
Tip: Martincova to win in straight sets: 1/1 (bet365)
