Anett Kontaveit v Marketa Vondrousova Head to Head
Vondrousova holds a 2-0 lead Kontaveit, last defeating her as recently as the 2021 Wimbledon in three sets.
Kontaveit Bullies Past Muguruza
In what is undoubtedly one of the biggest wins of her ongoing season, Anett Kontaveit stormed past Garbine Mugurza in the Kremlin Cup quarterfinal with 6-1, 6-1, in just 48 minutes. The ninth-seeded wildcard struck 22 winners and won 90 percent of her first service points to mark her fourth top-10 win in 2021.
Kontaveit is yet to drop a set in Moscow, moving past Katerina Siniakova and Andrea Petkovic in the previous rounds with absolute ease. With her most recent win over the Spaniard, the 25-year-old is now 32-9 on hard courts this year.
What’s more impressive is 16 of those wins have come in the last two months, spanning across two singles titles and a quarterfinal run at the Indian Wells Open.
Earlier in the season, Kontaveit was also a finalist at the Grampians Trophy (shared title with Ann Li) and the runner-up at the Eastbourne International. It is fair to say that the current World No. 20 has revived herself with a late-season resurgence and may very well be setting the tone for 2022.
Vondrousova, in a Fine Form Herself
Marketa Vondrousova sent a message of her own ahead of the semifinal by storming past the local favourite Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-4, 6-2 in 82 minutes. Her performance, although, may not have been that impressive.
Nonetheless, a win is a win as Vondrousova now sets her sight to adding finishing touches to her season. The Tokyo Olympics silver medalist hasn’t reached a singles final on the tour since the 2019 French Open where she fell to Ashleigh Barty in the trophy match.
But following an average start to the year, the 22-year-old has also enjoyed a revival in the second half of the year. Since reaching the final at the Summer Games, Vondrousova reached the quarters in Chicago and posted back to back semifinal appearances at the Luxembourg Open and Chicago Fall Tennis Classic.
Although she lost to Viktorija Golubic in the BNP Paribas Opener, the #35-ranked player made up for it in Moscow by beating Elena Rybakina and Lesia Tsurenko in straight sets.
Kontaveit v Vondrousova Prediction and Tip
Kontaveit will start this match as the favourite but Vondrousova has garnered quite a bit of force from her recent victories. This match can go either way but has got the makings of being a three-setter at the very least.
