In one of the matches of the first round of Roland Garros on September 28, Angelique Kerber will play against Kaia Yuvan. Bookmaker analysts are very cautious in assessing Kerber’s chances of winning. What will be the forecast for the match?
The 2020 season of Angelique Kerber is ambiguous . A total of five tournaments were played by a German tennis player. She achieved the greatest success at the Grand Slam tournaments. Australian Open and US Open reached the 1/8 finals. In the other three competitions, he won only one fight.
After playing in New York, Kerber played only one match on clay. In Rome, without a fight in the first round, she lost to Sinyakova (3-6, 1-6). It is difficult to make any predictions for the German tennis player against such a background. However, she clearly has no problems with motivation for the “majors”.
19-year-old Slovenian Kaya Juvan is gradually progressing at an adult level and is already claiming to be in the top 100.
A year ago, Yuvan already played in the main draw of Roland Garros. Then, after qualifying in the first round, she lost to experienced Sorana Kyrstea (7-5, 4-6, 5-7). It is the experience that Kaia clearly lacks so far. In a recent tournament in Rome, Juvan also had a successful qualifying and first round match against experienced compatriot Polona Herzog. Again there was a largely equal match, but in the third game Kaia “floated” (6-4, 4-6, 1-6).
Kerber and Yuvan had never played with each other before.

The line of bookmakers for the match is somewhat surprising. Kerber is a small favorite. Clear expectations of the victory of the young representative of Slovenia. Meanwhile, Kerber shows himself well even with a not very successful season at the Majors. Yuvan feels uncomfortable in matches against experienced opponents. We place a bet on the Kerber experience in the upcoming game and, using the offered odds, offer a forecast for the victory of the German tennis player.
Our prediction is a victory for Kerber for a coefficient of 1.81 in BC Vinline.
