Kristina Kucova v Catherine Harrison Head to Head

They played once before and it happened last year. Harrison won after Kucova retired down 4-6.

Bad Year For Kucova

Kristina Kucova is not having a good year so far with a 5-11 record. It’s a disappointing thing for the Slovakian but nevertheless, she is able to keep herself in the top 100. That’s a good thing because talent-wise she can certainly be ranked even higher but she needs to play better.

On clay, it’s 1-2 so far which is fine but historically she has been so good on the surface that finishing the year with a negative score on the surface would be a disaster. Rabar presents an interesting opportunity against a player who hasn’t been great on the surface so that’s a chance she should take.

Recently it’s been a struggle for Kucova but she faced some really tough opposition. Players like Anett Kontaveit and Tereza Martincova are much better and losses in those matches are completely understandable.

Rare Chance For Harrison

Catherine Harrison doesn’t get to play many WTA tour events so this chance in Rabat is one she will be looking for. The American has been okay this year with a 16-13 record but most of those wins came against lesser competition on the ITF level.

None of that won’t matter much against Kucova who is a much better and more experienced player but last year they played and Harrison was up 6-4 when the Slovakian retired. Perhaps she can draw inspiration from that matchup as to how to attack Kucova.

Clay is a fairly new surface for Harrison as she only played 60 matches on it but a 31-29 record is pretty solid for someone who didn’t have many red-dirt courts around growing up.

Kucova v Harrison Prediction and Tip

So their only matchup last year was won by Harrison via a retirement. She was up 6-4 in the opening set but it’s unclear just how much Kucova was hampered by an injury. If she retired she clearly could not play much longer so that’s something to keep an eye on.

Kucova is the better player on clay and she is far more experienced on the surface. If she can string together a great performance she would win this comfortably. I think I’ll back her to do that even with all the question marks. Harrison is just too much of an unknown. Be careful about this one, you never know.

Tip: Kucova to win in straight sets: 13/10 (Click Here to Bet with bet365)
