Roland Garros Paris, France
Greek tennis player Maria Sakkari has made it into the fourth round of the 2021 WTA French Open at Roland Garros in Paris. At this stage of the tournament, Sakkari is set to play against Sofia Kenin from the United States.
Maria Sakkari has made huge improvements over the past few seasons and is slowly establishing herself amongst the top players on the WTA tour. Sakkari enters this match having defeated Elise Mertens in 3 sets in the previous round. It was an impressive match for Maria Sakkari as she won over 80% of her service games and 6 return games. Sakkari has been in decent form with her last major performance taking place at the Miami Open where she made it through to the semifinals. This is expected to be a tough match for Sakkari as she is playing against the number 4 seed in Sofia Kenin.
Looking at Sofia Kenin, the American superstar will be hoping to challenge for her second Grand Slam title at this tournament. 2020 was a massive season for Kenin and it promoted her to the top ranks in the WTA rankings. That being said, Kenin has struggled this season as she has failed to make a big impact at any tournament this season. Kenin enters this match having defeated Jessica Pegula in 3 sets in the previous round. This will be a challenging match for Kenin and she must play her best tennis if she wishes to win this match.
Sofia Kenin and Maria Sakkari 3 times in the past with Sakkari winning on 2 occasions and Kenin winning just once. The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at Abu Dhabi where Maria Sakkari won in 3 sets.
Free Tennis Pick:
Taking all the information into consideration, I am going to pick Maria Sakkari to win this match. Sakkari has been in better form over the past few months while Kenin has struggled in 2021. This should be a close match but I see Sakkari winning.
