This will be a battle for a semi-final place in St Petersburg, which is turning out to be a fantastic tournament. Petra Kvitova is third seed for the tournament.

She will line up against Ekaterina Alexandrova who has already landed a WTA title this year, but who has also lost heavily to Kvitova too in 2020.

Kvitova can book a semi-final place

Petra Kvitova is the third seed in St Petersburg. That high seeding means that she had a first-round bye. In her opening match in the tournament, she was up against Belgium’s Alison van Uytvanck.

After taking the first set on a tie-break Kvitova surprisingly went off the boil. She managed to only stick one game on the board as she totally lost her momentum in the second set.

But then the Czech star pulled it back together to dominate the final set and get through.

Our betting prediction:
Kvitova -3.5 handicap
11/10

Kvitova was a quarter-finalist at the Australian Open 2020 and during that run, she met Alexandrova. Kvitova totally crushed her opponent in that meeting.

That could be a big enough indication that she can get through this tie.

Before the Australian Open Kvitova had made a warm-up appearance at the Brisbane International when she ran to the semi-finals there.

You basically expect her to get deep in tournaments. Especially at this kind of level.

 

Can Alexandrova fare better against Kvitova?

Ekaterina Alexandrova’s loss against Kvitova at the Australian Open would have been quite a chastening result for the Russian. She had opened her 2020 campaign by earning a title at the Shenzhen Open.

She knocked off some big players there as well, beating four of the top-ten seeds at the event including Australian Open runners up Garbine Muguruza and the red-hot Elena Rybakina.

Alenxandrova then looked to be moving well at the Australian Open before meeting Kvitova in the third round. That is the only previous meeting between the two players.

Alexandrova met wild card Daria Kasatkina in the opening round of this home event for her.  She took a win in that one in three sets.

That put her through to meet seventh seed Donna Vekic in the second round where the Russian was the underdog.

But she blitzed the first set 6-1 before landing the second 7-5. So this has been a return to form from her. But can she get closer to Kvitova this time?
