Sara Errani v Irina Bara Head to Head
Errani won their only meeting in Bogota in 2019, fighting back from a set down to win the Round of 32 contest.
Errani Will Take Confidence from German Open
2012 Budapest champion Sara Errani of Italy comes to Hungary on the back of a decent showing at the German Open last week.
Errani knocked out France’s Fiona Ferro and Croatia’s Anna Konjuh in straight sets to reach her third quarterfinal of the year, but once again missed out on a semifinal spot, going down to Ukraine’s Dayan Yastremska in straight sets.
Ranked 105th in the world, the 34-year-old Errani had earlier reached the last eight in Bogota and Parma, before falling to to Tamara Zidansek and Sloane Stephens respectively.
The 2012 French Open finalist, who failed to qualify for Roland Garros and Wimbledon this year, had a pretty good run at the Australian Open.
Coming through the qualifiers, Errani defeated China’s Qiang Wang in a tough three-setter, before handing Venus Williams a 6-1, 6-0 rout in the second round. She eventually went down fighting to Su-wei Hsieh in the third round.
Overall, the Italian is 8-8 from her main draw matches this year. The former World No. 5 is a nine-time winner on the tour, and claimed her title in Budapest by beating Elena Vesnina in the final.
Bara Struggling to Win Main Draw Matches
Facing Errani will be World No. 112 Irina Bara of Romania, who is 12-13 from all tournaments, across levels this year.
The 26-year-old, who was a semifinalist at the WTA 125k in Bol last month, had reached the final of an ITF event in Bonita Springs earlier this year, finishing runner-up after losing to Katie Volynets in the final.
Bara, who reached the third round of the French Open last year, is a nine-time champion and 12-time runner-up on the ITF Circuit. She qualified for Roland Garros this year as well but fell to Astra Sharma in the first round.
Currently at her career-high ranking, Bara lost to Kristyna Pliskova in the first round of the German Open last week. She has lost all five of her tour-level main draw matches this year.
Errani v Bara Prediction and Tip
Errani showed good form at the German Cup and will look to make another deep run. Expect her to begin with a win.
