Angelique Kerber v Amanda Anisimova Head to Head
This will be the first time that the World No. 28 Kerber will face the 81st-ranked Anisimova.
Kerber Crushes Blinkova
Former World No. 1 Angelique Kerber breezed past a second Russian at Bad Homburg to move into her second quarterfinal of the year.
The German left-hander, who was beaten by Maria Sakkari at the Grampians Trophy quarterfinal, has had an ordinary year by her standards, but things seem to be changing for the 2018 Wimbledon champion as she knocked out both her first and second round opponents in less than an hour.
Kerber needed just 50 minutes to dispatch Ekaterina Yashina 6-1, 6-1 in the first round on Monday and just 58 minutes to eliminate Anna Blinkova 6-0, 6-2 in the round of 16 on Wednesday.
Yet to be broken in the tournament, Kerber saved three break points against Yashina but didn’t face any against Blinkova. She converted all five of her break points in teh first round and five of 11 on Wednesday.
Ranked 28th in the world, the 33-year-old is a three-time major champion and finished runner-up at Wimbledon in 2016.
She has a solid 72-28 record on grass, which includes two titles from six finals.
Wednesday’s win improved her to 11-10 in 2021. She had failed to reach the last eight last week, falling to old rival Victoria Azarenka in the round of 16.
Anisimova Getting Into Good Rhythm
Anisimova is off to a flying start at Bad Homburg. The 19-year-old overpowered Danka Kovinic in the first round on Sunday and then outplayed Andrea Petkovic in the second round on Tuesday to storm into her second quarterfinal of the year.
The American, ranked 81st in the world, came into the tournament with a 7-8 record, and had lost her grass court opener in Berlin to Alize Cornet in straight sets.
But she has looked a different player at Bad Homburg, dispatching Montenegro’s Kovinic 6-2, 6-1 in 50 minutes and then needing just 64 minutes to beat Germany’s Petkovic 6-1, 7-5 on Tuesday.
Against the German, Anisimova converted four of five break points and saved one of two. She also won 78 percent service points and 49 percent return points.
Anisimova, who reached a career-high ranking of 21 in 2019, had won two matches in a row only once before in 2021, reaching the quarterfinals in Parma before falling to Cori Gauff in straight sets.
The 2019 Copa Colsanitas champion and 2018 Japan Open runner-up, Anisimova was a semifinalist at Roland Garros two years, but she hasn’t had similar success over the last two years.
She has not made it to a semifinal since reaching that stage in Auckland last year, where she fell to Serena Williams, but will be hoping to change that by winning the contest on Thursday.
Kerber v Anisimova Prediction and Tip
Expect a cracking quarterfinal between two players, who were off-colour the entire year but have struck great form in this tournament. Kerber’s experience gives her the edge though. Expect the German to win in three and make it to the first semifinals since reaching that stage in Osaka in 2019.
