Day 3 of the WTA 500 event in Berlin will feature plenty of exciting action, including a blockbuster between Karolina Pliskova and Bianca Andreescu. It will also feature world #6 Maria Sakkari, in a tournament that’s fairly stacked with top ranked players.
WTA Berlin Day 3 Predictions
Maria Sakkari vs Daria Saville
Head-to-head: Sakkari 1-1 Saville
Their Indian Wells matchup earlier this year finished with Saville retiring after only five games, we can only expect there’s no repeat of that. The final winner, however, should be the same. Sakkari hasn’t been successful at Grand Slam level this year, but she’s been solid at tour level and is clearly above Saville, even on a surface where she never got any notable results.
Prediction: Sakkari in 2
Daria Kasatkina vs Ekaterina Alexandrova
Head-to-head: Alexandrova 1-1 Kasatkina< This should be a very tight match on paper, but Alexandrova has been showing some incredible form on grass. With the Den Bosch title last week and a win over Zanevska in the first round here in Berlin, she has now won six consecutive matches and 12 consecutive sets (after losing the first set of her first round match last week). That incredible momentum should see her through here. Prediction: Alexandrova in 2
