Kerber – Tomljanovic: what will Angelique show in his first match?
The last match of the tour for Kerber is dated January 27. At the US Open, the German tennis player will play against Isla Tomlyanovich in the first round on August 31. In the match forecast, we estimate the underdog’s chances.
Angelique Kerber did not play a single match after reaching the fourth round of Australian Open and being defeated by Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (7-6, 6-7, 2-6). The German tennis player missed tournaments in February and March, did not take part in demonstration competitions after leaving quarantine. Serious questions arise about its shape and possible predictions.
At the US Open for the past three years, Kerber has not had the best results. I lost twice in the first round, once managed to reach the third round. Invariably during this time, she lost in the status of a favorite of bookmakers. So, last year there was a defeat from Christina Mladenovic (5-7, 6-0, 4-6).
With enviable stability for the last three years in New York at the US Open, Ayla Tomljanovic has entered the second round and lost. Moreover, in the opening matches, the Australian tennis player twice won as an underdog during this time.
Since the start of the 2020 season, Tomljanovic has played many tournaments. It is interesting that most often she overcame the first circle, but then left the competition.
After a pause in the tour, at the end of May, Ayla Tomlyanovich began to play at demonstration tournaments. Despite the gained playing practice, at the first post-quarantine official tournament in Lexington in the opening match she lost to Putintseva (0-6, 4-6). At the pre-helmet tournament in New York, they also failed to overcome the first round barrier. This time, in three sets, Isla lost to Veronica Kudermetova (7-5, 3-6, 5-7).
Kerber won the only face-to-face encounter in 2015 on clay
The German tennis player has not played practice since January
Tomljanovic lost the last two matches at WTA tournaments
In recent years, Angelique Kerber has not performed very well at the US Open, regularly does not meet the expectations of bookmakers. Now a tennis player without playing practice.
In Ajla Tomljanović there is match practice, but the results are not the most successful. However, already in the last match against Kudermetova, Aila had chances of winning. We think that with odds above 2.00, it is worth playing a bet on the victory of the Australian tennis player in the match.
Our prediction is that Tomljanovic will win for the odds 2.21 in BC Leon.
