On Monday, September 28, 2020, after lunch, the duel in round 1 of the French Open is scheduled, between the Ukrainian Katarina Zavatska (112 WTA) and the Dutch Kiki Bertens (8 WTA).
The recommended prediction for the confrontation on the Court Suzanne Lenglen goes in the direction of the number 5 seed on the main women’s singles table.
Katarina Zavatska: Team form, news and statistics
Katarina (20 years old) is a tennis player 1.72 meters tall and about 63 kilograms. It failed to enter the world’s top 100, the closest being in 103rd place in February this year.
The sportswoman from Lutsk hits the forehand with her right and double lapels.
He has amassed just over $ 250,000 in prizes, and in the Grand Slam tournaments he has only appeared on the main boards, at the US Open 2020.
Despite the fact that he got qualifications directly on the board, his form is far from the best. , lacking the rhythm and confidence brought by the series victories.
Zavatska recorded 93 victories and 48 defeats on the clay, outdoors during his short professional career.
In the current autumn season, on slag he won 1 match in the ITF circuit with Chloe Paquet (4-6 6-4 6-4) but lost another 2 matches on the slow fields, in Istanbul with Paula Badosa (1-6 2- 6) and at ITF Cagnes Sur Mer with Golubic (2-6 3-6).
Kiki Bertens: Team form, news and statistics
Kiki (28 years old) is a more massive tennis player than her opponent today, being 10 centimeters taller.
Although she preferred not to participate in the US Open, the bat was not able to play too much on slag, being defeated in the first rounds in Rome and Strasbourg.
Last week she gave up in the decisive set of the duel with the Latvian Jelena Ostapenko, at the score of 6-2 4-6 2-4.
However, the leg injury did not seem to be a capital one, and according to the statements he withdrew from the desire not to aggravate the situation, precisely in the perspective of these 2 demanding weeks in Paris.
Bertens has a semifinal at Roland Garros, in 2016. He lost then after 2 balanced sets in front of Serena Williams.
Overall career, the Dutchwoman has 237 victories and 89 failures on slag, and in her record she has passed 60% of her WTA titles on slow surfaces.
In terms of service, he is doing well, being able to get a lot of light points behind the first ball. In 2020 he served 70 aces in 15 matches, but 13 of them were played on fast or very fast pitches. He recently served 3 aces to Ostapenko in Strasbourg, but failed against Poland’s Hercog in Rome.

Tennis Prediction of the Day Katarina Zavatska vs Kiki Bertens
I bet on a poor match in terms of direct winning services, from the favorite from the Netherlands.
Bertens does not have a sustained pace of play, physically it is difficult to predict what level he is at, and for these reasons I do not think he will have an easy life on Monday.
Moreover, the weather conditions at the time of the game in the French capital are atypical, with announced temperatures of about 13-14 degrees Celsius, cloudy skies, humidity of over 85% and wind of over 15 kilometers per hour.
Therefore, for the return of the balls in the game are not even the most optimal parameters met, and in combination with the slower field, the chances of returning the first service for Zavatska are higher.
Bet Tips: Under 3.5 aces – Bertens
