Our Prediction:

Petra Kvitova will win

Ashleigh Barty – Petra Kvitova Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 22:00

Tracey:The hometown favorite stormed back to beat Maria Sharapova in three sets. No doubt a great performance, but Bartys win was definitely aided by Sharapovas ten double faults and abundant unforced errors.

Check out the Kvitova vs Barty H2H matches. Kvitova will be hoping to make her second semi final in Melbourne but will have to work hard for the victory against the home favourite Barty. They have played once this year in Sydney, where Kvitova came from a set down to win a close one in the final. The top half contains multiple former No.1s while it is between Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Danielle Collins, Ashleigh Barty and Petra Kvitovain the other half. Theres a big opportunity for someone in the bottom half of the Australian Open draw to make the final now.

Last year, she won the WTA Nottingham and the Elite Trophy in Zhuhai. Needless to mention, she has a bright future ahead of her and can very well break into the top 10 by the end of this week. Barty has done exceptionally well as a doubles player and now, she is turning a lot of heads on the singles circuit too. She was also a semifinalist in Wuhan and Montreal.

Petra Kvitova vs. Ashleigh Barty - 01/21/19 WTA Tour - Australian Open Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Australian has not put a foot wrong, but Kvitova is on another level this week and her record in finals is excellent. Barty is on a 7-match winning streak at the moment which is the longest she has had in her career. I am not writing off Bartys chances completely. I think it would take a massive drop in performance for Kvitova to allow the Australian a look in. Both these two players deserve their places in the final. She has won 25 out of the last 32 finals so far, including her last seven. The ball striking from both wings was incredible. I feel for Barty because it could be back-to-back losses in the finals in Sydney. Kvitova shrugged off the disappointment of losing in Brisbane with a streak of her own Sydney. I think if Kvitova plays near the level we saw from her against Sasnovich, she will win this at a canter. She is yet to concede a set and considering the quality of opposition she faced, it is an impressive achievement.

Excluding Hopman Cup matches, Barty is on a 7-match winning streak stretching back to last year at the Zhuhai Elite Trophy. She has an even 3-3 record in finals. Ashleigh Barty, on the other hand, will hope to capture a 4th career title.

The first time it happened was in Birmingham in 2017, when Kvitova won her first title post-surgery in three sets. The Czech has been impeccable this week. Petra Kvitova is a former champion in Sydney (won in 2015), while Ashleigh Barty finished runner-up last year. This will be the second time that these two women meet with the title on the line. She is yet to drop a set, and her dominant display in the semifinals was a further reminder that she should perhaps be taken very seriously in Melbourne.

We predict them for you. Its time for the quarterfinals of the Australian Open. Who will win? Only three rounds remain until we crown a Grand Slam champion. There are two quarterfinal matches on Tuesday: Ashleigh Barty vs Petra Kvitova and Danielle Collins vs Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Predicting today are myself (Yesh Ginsburg), Steen Kirby, Tracey Essex, Eric Han, and Jay Sandhu. Will it be Serena Williams again? Before we find out the winner, though, we have to know who wins the quarterfinals. Will it be anybody else?

Kvitova vs Barty match stats

Barty has also made her breakthrough and has done well to reach this far. Jay:Knowing that Kvitova usually plays really leading up to Slams before losing in the first couple of rounds, I was expecting her to lose very early on, but she is still going strong and is probably the favorite to win the title.

Her real test came in the fourth round when she met Maria Sharapova. Barty was superb in every aspect she lost only two break points out of a possible eight and produced 28 winners as against Sharapovas 17. After going down in the first set, she moved on to stage a remarkable comeback and knock out the Russian star with 4-6, 6-1, 6-4.
