Kerber vs Siniakova: prediction for the WTA Indian Wells match
Angelique Kerber has some great memories about the Indian Wells tournament. In 2019 German player reached the final here. Only Bianca Andreescu managed to stop her (6:4, 3:6, 6:4). In previous editions of Indian Wells tournament she reached the round of 16 and the quarter-final respectively. Tournament was not held in 2020, so now Kerber has to defend her points for the 2019 final. It will be a huge motivation boost for the World No. 15 player.
After the round of 16 match at US Open Kerber participated only in one tournament. At the indoor Ostrava tournament she was beaten by Teichmann (2:6, 3:6).
Katerina Siniakova has already improved her result at Indian Wells. In 2019 Czech player was beaten in the first round of that American tournament by Kateryna Kozlova (5:7, 2:6).
This time Siniakova played in the first round against legendary player, Kim Clijsters. Match was going on for three sets, but Czech player still managed to record a comfortable victory (6:1, 2:6, 6:2).
Now she will play against dangerous opponent. Siniakova lost five out of six most recent head-to-head matches to Kerber. Czech player suffered two of those defeats in 2021 - it happened at hard tournament in Melbourne and at grass tournament in Bad Homburg.
This bet won in four out of six most recent head-to-head matches
In five out of six most recent head-to-head matches no more than nine games were played in the first set
Kerber will try to defend points for the 2019 final at Indian Wells. German player will play against comfortable opponent in the first match, because she won five out of six head-to-head matches. We are not expecting a sensation today.
