The upcoming match is not so easily predictable, according to experts: both players are in great shape and have three victories at the Australian Open.
Maria Sakkari, the World No. 7 is colliding with the world No.26 Elise Mertens in the quarterfinals of the Ladies Trophy in Saint Petersburg. They have met four times so far on the WTA tour, with Sakkari leading 3-1. Their latest matchup was last year when Sakkary won (a 7-5, 6-7 (2), 6-2) at the French Open.
Sakkari performs best from the baseline, while Mertens has great defensive skills even when it comes to the strongest shots from an opponent. At the same time, Sakkari might have issues with double faults, and Mertens is a weaker player on serve. Overall, their chances are more or less equal and the match is going to be challenging for both of them and thus exciting for fans and sports bettors.
According to experts, the best betting picks might be related to sets, with wagers on one or another player to win the set. The Over on game total of 21.5 is also a realistic forecast, but the odds are not so lucrative.
