Jennifer Brady v Anastasija Sevastova Head to Head
Brady and Sevastova have never played each other before this.
Brady In Strife on Clay
While Brady has clearly been a breakout performer over the last 12 months or so, most of her positive results have come on hard courts. Her performance on clay has still left a lot to desire, including this year where she has won three of the five matches she’s played which doesn’t include a withdrawal from her second round match in Rome.
A first round defeat to Petra Kvitova in Stuttgart can be put down to a bad draw, but after winning a couple of rounds in Madrid, Brady then fell to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the third.
And then in Rome, the American won her opener but withdrew from the second round because of fitness concerns.
Even last year when Brady was becoming a household name with her performances across multiple tournaments – she also won her maiden WTA title in Lexington – her only appearance on clay came at the French Open. And she was taken down by Clara Tauson in the very first round.
Clearly not her most favourite surface then.
Sevastova Showing Signs of Recovery This Year
It was a horrendous last year on court for Sevastova, who won a mere one match in the main draw of all the competitions she participated in. It’s already gotten better in 2021.
The world number 47 has already reached the quarterfinal at two of the events on hard court surfaces, making it there in Adelaide and then following it up with her best ever performance in Miami when she reached the last eight stage there yet again.
And then turning her attention to clay, Sevastova reached round two at Charleston and Rome, while bettering that to third round at Madrid. At the latter, Sevastova had actually started out as a qualifier, before getting past Ana Bogdan and Johanna Konta.
Clay has been Sevastova’s favourite surface with three of her four WTA titles coming on it. And against a player who might be ranked 14th but has struggled on clay, she will look at her chances with great interest.
Brady v Sevastova Prediction and Tip
While Brady is a favourite on paper, we will have to go with Sevastova to edge out her opponent in this one given her own propensity towards clay.
