Karolina Pliskova (-122) vs Bianca Andreescu (+100)
5 a.m. ET
Pliskova played two excellent final sets in the opening round of Berlin, defeat Kaia Kanebi 6-7 (5), 6-0, 6-0. Pliskova was incredibly effective in serving, keeping 12 of her matches. The Czech won 70% of her first serve and hit 17 aces. In contrast, Pliskova won 46% of her comeback points and broke Kanepi’s big serve six times.
It was Pliskova sit away He won Wimbledon last season and has 62-28 Professionals log on the grass. The faster deck gives the already massive Pliskova service an extra boost. In addition, her flat ground kicks cut the field, outside the opponents’ attack areas. Pliskova understands when it’s time to get on the net.
Andreescu won it secondly A grasscourt match since 2018 in the first round of Berlin, download Katerina Sinyakova in a film in three sets 6-4, 4-6, 6-4. Andreescu was excellent in the second leg, winning 48% of the first replay points and breaking Sinyakova seven times. However, the Canadian will need to be better at serving, as Andreescu has been broken six times.
Andreescu is 14-8 on grass in her career, but she’s played only five games on the roof since 2018. Andreescu should do well in theory on the roof, where her versatility can pull an opponent well out of their comfort zones. However, in none of Andreescu’s grasscourt matches since 2018, she has not won more than 60% of her service points.
Pliskova is a strong grasscourt player and she put in a great performance against Kanepi. Pliskova can also land powerful ground strikes that appear low on the margins of her serve as well, which stay low and make Andreescu uncomfortable.
She will drag Andreesko Pliskova around the field sometimes, but I think Pliskova will be aggressive, punish Andreesko’s second serve and make her play more defensively than she wants.
It is also important to note that while the Pliskova turf Hello The rating is 202.8 points better than Andreescu.
picking Pliskova ML (-122)
Maria Scari (-440) vs Daria Savile (+320)
10:30 a.m. ET
The falconer had a successful start in Berlin, defeat Yulia Jinjin won 6-3 6-2. Scary won 92% of her first serve and faced no break point throughout the match. The Greek also won 51% of her comeback points and scored 13 break points.
Scary has 19-13 Professionals Record on grass, with a 3-1 record in 2022, but don’t let those records fool you. She was still looking uncomfortable on the surface lately. Scary does not move well on the grass and tries to play her part on clay with less efficiency. And while that might be effective against an overwhelmed Gangjin, it wouldn’t work against a higher-level opposition.
Savile qualified for Berlin and returned from a group to beats Jill Tishman in the first round. Savile returned well against Tishman, earning 48% of her comeback points. This allowed Savile to generate 18 break points and serve eight times. However, with her own serve, Savile hit 11 double faults, which would not be acceptable against Scary.
This year, Savile has kept every opponent in Berlin so far with less than 50% of his winning second serve and a combined 19 break in all three matches. So while the Australian has only a career record of 19-21 on grass, she’s feeling comfortable on the roof this week. Savile moves well, showing a high degree of tolerance in the rally and using the entire pitch in her versatility.
Scary has the most credit on her front hitting, but is less stable on the grass and doesn’t seem comfortable moving around on the surface or attacking the net. It’s hard to trust Scary to blast an opponent on the turf, especially a player like Savile who will make Scary run on every point.
Savile is certainly not a traditional grasscourt player, but he plays well in Berlin and has adapted well to the surface. While the 26 double faults in Berlin are worrying so far, Savile plays well behind her serve when she comes into play and should keep this match close.
