Irina Bara v Olga Danilovic Head to Head
This will be their first meeting on the tour, however, they did meet once before at an ITF final in Valencia in 2017. Bara fought back after losing the first set to win the match and clinch the title.
Bara Takes Out the Eighth Seed
Romania’s Irina Bara made a solid comeback to overcome eighth seed and World No. 105 Sara Errani in the first round in Budapest on Monday and record her first tour-level main draw victory this year after having lost all five so far.
Bara saved four of 10 break points and converted eight of 16 to win the gruelling two-hour-and-36-minute battle 4-6, 7-5, 6-2. In all, Bara won a total of 106 points while her opponent won 89.
The win improved Bara’s win-loss record to 13-13 from all matches, across different levels this year. The 26-year-old was a semifinalist at the WTA 125k in Bol last month and a finalist at an ITF event in Bonita Springs earlier this year.
Last year, Bara had reached the third round of the French Open. She qualified for Roland Garros this year as well but fell to Astra Sharma in the first round.
The Romanian is a nine-time champion and 12-time runner-up on the ITF Circuit.
Danilovic Overpowers Korpatsch
Facing Bara in the second round will be Serbian qualifier Olga Danilovic, who knocked out Germany’s Tamara Korpatsch 6-2, 6-2 in the first round on Tuesday.
Ranked 164th in the world, Danilovic broke her opponent five times in the match, while saving six of seven break points that she faced.
The one-hour-and-33-minute contest saw the Serb win 81% first-serve points and 55% return points.
The 20-year-old left-hander had beaten Spain’s Irene Burillo Escorihuella 6-4, 6-3 in the first qualifying round on Saturday and then knocked out Romania’s Miriam Bianca Bulgaru 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 in the second qualifying round on Sunday.
This was Danilovic’s second main draw win this year. She had stunned Petra Martic in the first round at the Australian Open. The World No. 164 won her only title on clay, winning the Moscow River Cup in 2018 by beating Anastasia Potapova in the final.
Bara v Danilovic Prediction and Tip
This is going to be an interesting matchup. They went the distance in their only previous meeting and one can expect a similar contest once again.
