Paula Badosa v Dayana Yastremska Head to Head
It will be a first meeting between the two.
Badosa Looking to Make An Impression on Debut
World No. 27 Paula Badosa is another player who has made quite an impact this season.
The Spaniard won her maiden WTA title at the Serbia Open, reached her first major quarterfinal at Roland Garros, her first WTA 100o semifinal in Madrid and made a quarterfinal appearance in Cincinnati on debut. She also made a run to the fourth round at Wimbledon thus showing her ability to adapt to all kinds of surfaces.
The 23-year-old right-hander is 35-15 this season and is coming into the tournament on the back of two consecutive second-round exits. She won her U.S. Open opener against Alison Van Uytvanck, but fell to Varvara Gracheva in the second round. At the Ostrava Open, Badosa got her revenge against Gracheva, but fell to Annett Kontaveit in the second round.
This will be the Spaniard’s first main draw appearance in Indian Wells; she was dumped out of the first qualifying round in 2019.
Yastremska Ousts Wild Card Jacquemot
Dayana Yastremska began her campaign with a straight sets win over 18-year-old Frenchwoman Elsa Jacquemot, who had received a wild card for the tournament.
The Ukrainian, ranked No. 75 in the world, was extremely dominant in the first set, racing to a 5-0 lead, before Jacquemot got on the board, by winning two successive games. Yastremska however, held on to clinch the set.
The second set was even more competitive with both players exchanging two breaks of serve in the first eight games, but it was Yastremska who got the decisive third break in the ninth game and then and then served out the contest in the next for a 6-2, 6-4 victory in an hour and 33 minutes.
The win improved the 21-year-old to 5-8 this season. She had reached the semifinals in Hamburg on her return to tennis after ITF lifted her six-month drug-related suspension in June but she has been out of form since then. Usually a solid player on hard courts, Yastremska came into the tournament with a 2-7 record on the surface this year with her only wins coming over Catherine Mcnally in Cincinnati and Alize Cornet in Chicago last week.
Badosa v Yastremska Prediction and Tip
Badosa has played more and has had more success this year. She is one of the most improved players on the tour and will be aiming to start with a win against the Ukrainian, who has mostly struggled of late. Expect the Spaniard to advance to the third round.
