Vondrousova vs Konjuh: prediction for the WTA Adelaide match
On January 12, Marketa Vondrousova will face Ana Konjuh in the second round of Adelaide tournament. Who will prevail in this battle? The answer is in our prediction.
Marketa Vondrousova had a successful 2021 season. The biggest achievement for the World No. 34 player was a silver medal at Tokyo Olympic Games.
Vondrousova started the 2022 season only at the second week. In the first round of the current Adelaide tournament she recorded a narrow victory over Viktorija Golubic (5:7, 6:4, 6:2). Vondrousova was not so efficient in the match against the Swiss player. She made 10 double faults, lost four games at her serve.
After surgeries and health issues Ana Konjuh is returning on tour. Croatian player was in great form once and was a member of WTA Top-20. In the previous season Konjuh managed to get into the Top-100.
Last week, Konjuh reached the quarter-final of Melbourne tournament. She managed to beat Martincova and Kanepi at that competition. In the first round at Adelaide Konjuh played against Daria Saville. Konjuh easily won the first set, but almost lost the advantage in the second one (6:2, 7:6).
