- Seone Mendez vs. Andrea Petkovic (WTA Cluj-Napoca)
- Marc-Andrea Huesler vs. Marcelo Barrios Vera (Cordenons challenger)
Tennis – WTA Cluj-Napoca quaterfinals: Seone Mendez vs. Andrea Petkovic
Andrea Petkovic arrived this week in Cluj-Napoca being ranked #91 in the world. She is finally back into the top 100 after an almost empty 2020 season. During her whole career she won 224 matches on clay out of 338, and this season her record on this surface is 11-8 (all event categories included).
Seone Mendez is a surprise at this stage of the competition. The player from Australia is at 22 years old currently ranked #269 in the world. Mendez loves clay, she usually plays on this surface on the ITF tour. Since the start of the season, she won 22 matches out of 31 played. Coming out quite brilliantly from the qualifying draw, Mendez was fortunate to go through Lesya Tsurenko in the previous round by retirement.
Mendez is undoubtedly in great form, however she will face a tough task tomorrow. The draw in Romania looks quite weak because of the Olympics being played this year, and Mendez will now be facing a top 100 player. Petkovic is the better and more experienced player and should prevail comfortably.
Prediction: we back Petkovic to win 2-0 (Set betting).
Tennis – Cordenons challenger quarterfinals: Marc-Andrea Huesler vs. Marcelo Barrios Vera
Marc-Andrea Huesler is struggling with confidence at the moment, the player from Switzerland had a very promising 2020 season with 31 wins and only 9 losses (16-3 on clay). Unfortunately, this season he already lost 23 matches out of 39 played (8-10 on clay). Huesler will be playing only his second quarterfinal of the season, this week in Cordenons.
Marcelo Barrios Vera is on a very different dynamic. The youngster from Chile has already played 2 finals on the challenger tour this year, both on clay which is his favorite surface. His overall record this season is 28-19 with a solid 22-14 on clay.
Prediction: it will be the first meeting between the two players. Barrios Vera has been the more solid player all around since the start of the year. We predict: Barrios Vera to win (Match odds).
