Head to Head Ons Jabeur v Maria Sakkari
The 1-1 scoreline between the two women with Sakkari got the last laugh at the Ostrava Open 2020.
Jabeur Storms to Quarters in Style
Ons Jabeur continued to build on his breakthrough season by reaching the quarter-finals again on his tour. In fact, this is Tunisia’s fourth consecutive stint and seventh overall in 2022.
Behind this incredible consistency, he is now the No. 7 World as he set his sights on going further and achieving his career best rankings.
Jabeur’s highlights this season have included success on clay at Charleston where he was runner-up and most recently, the title race at the Madrid Open. The 27-year-old won the biggest trophy of her career in Spain by beating the likes of Simona Halep, Belinda Bencic and Jessica Pegula.
At the Italian Open, the number seven seed continued the same – this time beating Sorana Cirstea, Ajla Tomljanovic and Yulia Putintseva in straight sets.
Although he had seen some losses this year, most of them had come at the hands of famous and formidable players. Sakkari is certainly in this league and Jabeur has to be careful.
Sakkari Beats Gauff
Maria Sakkari, who started as the fourth seed with a bye to the second round, has so far beaten Ekaterina Alexandrova and Cori Gauff in straight sets to reach the quarter-finals.
One more win and he will match his semi-final record at the 2019 Italian Open. The odds are good, given his pedigree and overall form, but he needs to step up his game.
The 26-year-old Greek has not had the best start on the clay swing, seeing that she fell in early rounds in Stuttgart and Madrid – to Laura Siegemund and Daria Kasatkina, respectively. Similarly, in Miami, she succumbed to Beatriz Haddad Maia in the opening round in three sets.
That said, Sakkari enjoyed a superb start to the season when she reached the final at St. Petersburg and Indian Wells Open. He made it into the top five as a result and is now ranked 4th in the World.
Sakkari v Jabeur Predictions and Tips
While Sakkari has a good chance of winning this, the fact remains that Jabeur is the heavy favorite here.
However, he is much more consistent and has made solid runs on clay. This match may have lasted three sets but in the end, Jabeur had to come out on top.
