Konjuh vs Siniakova: prediction for the WTA Madrid match
On April 29, Ana Konjuh will face Katerina Siniakova in the first round match of Madrid tournament. Croatian player won both head-to-head encounters. Should we expect another victory? Find the answer in our prediction.
Ana Konjuh got off to a powerful start in the new season. Croatian player reached the quarterfinals at Adelaide and at Melbourne. But after that she had a long slump. World No. 66 player is currently on a five-game losing streak in WTA tournaments. She suffered her most recent defeat to Ana Bogdan (4:6, 3:6), in the first round of Istanbul tournament.
Konjuh has never been successful at Madrid. Out of three latest tournaments in Spanish capital she has been eliminated in qualification twice, and in a more successful attempt she was beaten by Mladenovic in the first round of the main draw.
Katerina Siniakova is having an unsuccessful 2022 season. She managed to win only six matches of 13. Moreover, Czech player got injuried in the third round match of Miami tournament against Saville. Before that, she coasted past Marino and Raducanu in first two rounds.
Siniakova performs frequently at the Spanish capital. But Czech player is not so successful here - she failed to get past the first round in any of three latest editions of that tournament.
In each of two latest head-to-head matches opponents played 12 games in the second set
This bet won in three of five latest matches of Siniakova
There is no clear favourite in this match. Both opponents are having an unsuccessful season, Konjuh is currently on a long winless streak, while Siniakova is without any match practice after Miami tournament.
Choosing a bet for this match, we should look up the history of head-to-head matches. Croatian player won both head-to-head encounters, but matches were extremely contested. There is a high possiibility of another high-scoring match.
Our prediction - total over 21 games

Our second bet is on Konjuh to win the match
