Petra Kvitova has won her last two matches against Maria Sakkari.
I am backing the two-time Grand Slam winner to win their third-round clash in three sets at the US Open. Kvitova is 3-2 against Sakkari. The last four contests between the two players have gone to three sets with Kvitova winning the latest 6-3 3-6 6-3 at the 2021 Stuttgart Open.
The Czech reached the quarter-finals in Cincinnati. She beat Madison Keys, Veronika Kudermetova and Ons Jabeur before retiring against Angelique Kerber.
The World No.11 beat Polona Hercog 6-1 6-2 in the US Open first round. She next defeated compatriot Kristyna Pliskova 7-6 6-2 in the second round, winning 80% of her 1st serves and not allowing a break point.
Sakkari reached the 2021 French Open semi-finals. She beat Elise Mertens, Sofia Kenin and Iga Swiatek before going down to Barbora Krejcikova. The 25-year-old failed to get past the third round in her next four tournaments.
Sakkari beat Marta Kostyuk 6-4 6-3 in the US Open first round. She then ousted Katerina Siniakova 6-4 6-2 in the second round, saving two break points.
