Anett Kontaveit v Jelena Ostapenko Head to Head

Ostapenko Continues her Fine Run

Former World No. 5 Jelena Ostapenko is inching closer to yet another top 10 entry. In the month of February alone, the current world number 13 has posted some of the best results of her singles career.

Over the course of the week in Doha, the 24-year-old has dispatched some big names like Amanda Anisimova (6-3, 4-6, 6-4), number two seed Barbora Krejcikova (6-3, 6-2), and Garbine Muguruza (6-2, 6-2).

Ostapenko carried this fine run forward from her preceding stint in the Dubai Tennis Championships.

She won the title last weekend after overcoming four Grand Slam champions from the first round – Sofia Kenin, Iga Swiatek, Petra Kvitova, and Simona Halep. In the final, she defeated Veronika Kudermetova by serving a single bagel 6-0, 6-4. The week before, Ostapenko was a semifinalist in St. Petersburg.

Her tally as of her last win stands at 14-3.

Kontaveit, on a Roll Herself

One of the reasons why this semifinal promises to be an entertaining affair is because of Anett Kontaveit. While Ostapenko has only recently discovered her stride, the Estonian has been at it from last season.

Currently ranked World No. 7, Kontaveit made it to seven WTA finals in 2021 – she won the title on four occasions, lost on two, and shared the trophy in another. Her consistency (48-17) also took her to the WTA Finals in Guadalajara where she lost in the final match to Garbine Muguruza.

In 2022, her highlights include a semifinal run in Sydney and a title feat in St. Petersburg, where she defeated Belinda Bencic, Ostapenko, and Maria Sakkari.

While she was slated to play in Dubai, she chose to focus on the Qatar Open instead. By the looks of it, the week’s rest has done well for her.

The 26-year-old, starting as the number four seed with a bye into the second round, has had a comfortable journey to the semis. Her victims include Ana Konjuh, Elise Mertens, and Ons Jabeur.

Ostapenko v Kontaveit Prediction and Tip

Ostapenko has got a solid chance to dent Kontaveit’s hopes of yet another final, especially with the litany of impressive victories this week. That said, Kontaveit has been far more consistent on the whole and it will not be easy to bring her down.

This is an evenly-matched affair that can swing either way.
