Kasatkina vs Sakkari: prediction for the WTA Berlin match
Daria Kasatkina has four victories over Maria Sakkari in her career. On June 17, opponents will face each other in the quarter-final of Berlin tournament. Should we expect another victory from the Russian player? The answer is in our prediction.
Daria Kasatkina is making her fans happy with impressive displays and great results throughout the season. She reached semifinals at Rome and at Roland Garros, that's how she climbed up to the 13th spot in WTA rankings, she is looking to get into the Top-10.
Daria played her first matches on the grass surface at Berlin. Russian player managed to beat Kalinina (5:7, 6:3, 6:1) and Alexandrova (5:7, 6:1, 6:2) in three sets.
Maria Sakkari performed well on hard surface, but her performance on clay was below expectations. Greek player participated on four clay tournaments and won four matches. It is surely not the best result for the World No. 6 player.
Maria is having her second grass tournament of the season. She reached the quarter-final at Nottingham, where she suffered an unexpected defeat to Haddad-Maia (4:6, 6:4, 3:6). Sakkari started the Berlin tournament with victories over Jeanjean (6:3, 6:2) and Saville (6:1, 7:5).
