Karolina Pliskova Preview – Pliskova to march on?

In her Fourth Round match, Karolina Pliskova moved untroubled through her contest against this year’s French Open runner up Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

That was an expected result there and it keeps Pliskova on track in New York.

She has yet to nail that elusive Grand Slam title, but the fourth seed is favourite for this Quarter Final.

In the tennis betting match outright, Pliskvoa is a quote of 8/11 odds-on* (odds taken 16:51 GMT 7th September 2021 at 888sport).

There has only been one dropped set from Pliskova at this US Open.

That happened in the Second Round when Amanda Anisimova tied things up in a tight match.

But since then, Pliskova has looked more and more comfortable.

The previous best finish that Pliskova had at the US Open was as a losing Finalist in 2016.

She hasn’t been past the Quarter Final stage in four efforts since then.

Our betting prediction:
Karolina Pliskova 2-0

With another missed Grand Slam chance with a loss in the Final at Wimbledon this year, can Pliskova edge closer to that Slam crown?

She has met Maria Sakkari twice before. The head to head is at 1-1.

Both previous meetings were on the clay in Rome, Pliskova winning the latest in 2019.

Karolina Piskova has earned a W10 L2 record now in her last ten matches on the hard court.

The Pliskova 2-0 set betting option for this Quarter Final match is at 7/4* (odds taken 16:51 GMT 7th September 2021 at 888sport).


Maria Sakkari Preview – Can Sakkari produce the upset?

Greece’s Maria Sakkari had a late night finish in her Quarter Final match.

That was against former US Open champion Bianca Andreescu.

The match didn’t finish until after 2:00 a.m. local time in New York, so Sakkari’s going to be less rested than her opponent.

This has been a terrific run through by Sakkari, who is ranked 18th in the World.

She raced through her first three matches at the tournament without dropping a set.

That run included a win over Petra Kvitova in the Third Round.

But the success over Andreescu may come at a price as that was an exhausting fixture.

In the match outright for tennis betting, Sakkari is a quote of 11/10 to grab the win* (odds taken 16:51 GMT 7th September 2021 at 888sport).

It’s not beyond her.

She is a very tough competitor and has been growing in Grand Slam status in the last couple of years.

This Quarter Final berth at the 2021 US Open is her best finish in this particular Slam.

She has continued her run of having improved her finish in each of the last three participations at this tournament.

Maria Sakkari produced her best Grand Slam result earlier this year in reaching the semi finals of Roland Garros.

Looking at the respective form of the two in the North American swing of the season, Sakkari’s falls a little short.

Really not since that big French Open run has Sakkari turned on the heat, until this Grand Slam campaign.

The Greek star is W6 L2 in her last eight hard court tournaments.

She’s going to have a lot on her plate against Pliskova who looks to be in top form right now.


Karolina Pliskova vs Maria Sakkari Betting Advice

Maria Sakkari is a superb competitor as she showed in digging in to beat Bianca Andreescu in the last round.

That was an exhaustingly long match for her though. It took around three and a half hours to complete.

It’s likely to be a disadvantage in terms of energy levels against Pliskova.

So the Pliskova 2-0 set betting selection may be worth chancing at 7/4* (odds taken 16:51 GMT 7th September 2021 at 888sport).


Key Facts – Karolina Pliskova vs Maria Sakkari Betting Tip

  • Karolina Pliskova is 1-1 in the head to head with Sakkari
  • Karolina Pliskova has dropped just one set in this tournament
  • Maria Sakkari’s Fourth Round match lasted three and a half hours


Pliskova looks pretty dialled in at the moment and really has looked untroubled since that tricky Second Round effort against Anisimova.

She is the genuine front runner to win the Grand Slam outright as it stands, running as the 11/2 favourite there* (odds taken 16:51 GMT 7th September 2021 at 888sport).

The Czech player should have the edge on the hard court over Sakkari on Wednesday.
