A Zhuravleva – E Kuznetsova Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 06:00

Kuznetsova has won seven of her last eight matches on hard court. A win here would also give Kuznetsova her first career title in a Premier 5 Tournament. Kuznetsova now has four career wins over top-10 players, the most shes had in a single year since 2016. Kuznetsova got 73 percent of her first serves in play and saved one of her two break points, in a victory that took a little over an hour to complete. Kuznetsova looks to win her first title since last years Citi Open and the 19th title of her career. Svetlana Kuznetsova is coming off a straight sets win over Ashleigh Barty that took 18 games to decide. Kuznetsova won 75 percent of her total service points and converted on four of her five break points. Kuznetsova has split her last 10 final appearances overall and is 14-14 in final appearances on hard court. In the victory, Kuznetsova won 78 percent of her first serve points and 67 percent of her second serve points.

Keys win/loss record in 2019 is far superior, across all three surfaces. Keys also has superior hold/break numbers, holding serve more often than Kuznetsova and breaking her opponents more regularly. And the available statistical evidence suggests that that Keys should win this match and the title with it. Keys leads the head to head convincingly 3-0, with the Russian yet t win a set against Keys.

As a two-time Major champion, the fact that she can do so is no surprise, but that she is doing it at the age of 34, a full 15 years after her US Open triumph, is impressive and worthy of great praise. However, from the second she took to the court at the Western & Southern Open, she has played with skill and confidence. It has been a difficult period for Kuznetsova, who has slipped outside the worlds top 150 and had visa issues just trying to get into the country to play.

Her serve gives her a weapon that Kuznetsova cannot match and that should provide the platform for her to continue her great record against Kuznetsova, although expect both sets to be close. It is nonetheless hard to pick against Keys, who is looking for her second title of the year after her win in Charleston in April. That said, if this week has shown anything then it is not to count out experienced players. Venus Williams has had a great run here and Kuznetsova has obviously also found her very best form.

There might be a newer match between Anastasija Sevastova vs Svetlana Kuznetsova.

But her season has sparked into life in Cincinnati and she will now surely view herself as having a good chance of claiming the title. Meanwhile, Keys came to Cincinnati fresh from two opening-round defeats, suffered at the hands of Donna Vekic in Toronto and world #283 Hailey Baptiste in Washington. Hardly the type of form that suggested she would make the final.

I would expect her t dominate this game. She did a lot of running in that game and so I think this will be a short match and so I am oing with the under. Barty has been in superb form in this tournament and she looks the likely winner at this point. Kuznetsova has not been on the tour much over the past few years due to injury and the fact she is going deep into a tournament here is likely to have an effect and I would expect her to be fatigued at this point, especially after a tough three set match against Pliskova yesterday.

Both players made it through to the final by defeating their semifinal opponents in straight sets. Kuznetsova climbed all over the Ash Barty serve to deny the Australian, who won the French Open in June, the chance to reclaim the #1 ranking she recently lost to Naomi Osaka. She had done the exact same thing to Sloane Stephens and, to a lesser extent, Karolina Pliskova. Keys produced a serving masterclass against fellow American young gun Sofia Kenin. 14 aces and over 80% points won behind her first serve, although Kenin did fashion 10 break points, converting three of them.

Void bets occur when the bet is not decided as a win or loss and the stake is returned to the player. a common void bet occurs in tennis when a player retires through injury. This happens when a match is suspended, posponed, or cancelled e.g. Note: bookmakers' policies on voided matches changes so we always recommend players to check the specific terms of bookmakers they bet with to ensure they understand under what circumstances they void bets.

Kuznetsova has come out of nowhere and has beaten enough respectable players this tournament to grab your attention, but this was Keys tournament to lose as long as shes hitting with this much control. I said a couple of matches ago that Keys would win this tournament as long as she continues to hit the way shes hitting and limits the unforced errors. Keys was a bit sloppy in her semifinal match, but overall, shes playing as well as she has in quite some time and theres not many who can match her power rally after rally.
