The Round of 16 match on Day 4 of the WTA Montreal Masters was disrupted for a long time due to rain. Finally, 3 of the 4 quarterfinals were confirmed. Aryna Sabalenka vs Liudmila Samsonova and Petra Kvitova vs Belinda were still contests. The Round of 16 and the winners of those matches will be played in the Quarterfinals. We at LWOT will update this article to include the Quarterfinals once the Round of 16 is complete. Iga Swiatek and Coco Gauff are the two players who have fielded in the quarterfinals that have been confirmed. Who do you think will win?
WTA Montreal Quarterfinals Prediction
Coco Goff vs Jessica Pegula
Head to Head Goff 1-1 Pecula
Gauff was outstanding against Marketa Vondrousova, a game where I expect her to win in straight sets. Because her game on the hard court was a good one against the champions at Wimbledon. But losing just three games is a great effort. Pegula defeats Jasmine Pauline set in one straight game that ended before the rain stopped in the first round. Out of respect for her Italian opponent. It was an expected victory for a woman who had almost never lost before in the quarterfinals.
The two are best friends and duo. Gauff won his only match this year despite being on grass. It’s hard not to support younger Americans now, Pegula is a great contender. But they often have trouble making the next step in the later stages of tournaments. Gauff’s superior athleticism meant that older Americans would rely on her excellent hand-eye coordination. But the French Open finalist is hitting the ball great right now. and will likely qualify for the semi-finals of the WTA Montreal Masters.
Prediction: Gough in 2
Elena Rybakina with Daria Kasatkina
Prediction: Kazatkina 2-1 Ryobakina
Both women were in superb form in the last 16. Rybakina dispatched the deadly Sloane Stephens in straight sets. never looked at any danger Even if you have to stop in the second set Kasatkina, meanwhile, was the straight-set winner with Marie Bouzkova, who beat fifth seed Caroline Garcia in the last round. The two played in Silicon Valley’s North American hardcourt last year. Finished 6-0, it was an awkward matchup for 2022 Wimbledon champion Rybakina. Kasatkina is probably the best on this tour at creating wide angles with her hands. and make her opponent move according to the process Movement is Rybakina’s biggest weakness.
Much will depend on the number of free points that Rybakina receives on the serve. But I’m going to predict an upset here in favor of Kasatkina to reach the semi-finals.
Prediction: Kasatkina in 3
Each Swiatek vs. Danielle Collins
Head to Head Sviatek 2-1 Collins
This is truly an interesting matchup. Collins is suddenly playing tennis that reminds her of her best. With top favourite, Leylah Fernandez, the latest to be stunned by her massive hit. after maria Zachary suffered the same fate. The Pole won another close match against Karolina Muchova and Swiatek had responded well since criticizing her prior to this tournament for being a huge mistake. Collins will have confidence knowing she defeated Swiatek easily in the semi-finals. Australian Open when fully played But the four-time Grand Slam champion has improved greatly on the hardcourt since then. This can be seen from last year’s US Open title.
It’s a tough match for both on paper. Collins’ hard hitting is not Swiatek’s preference, as demonstrated by her aptitude on clay where she has slightly more time. However, Swiatek’s brilliant move is the exact opposite of what the mighty Collins would like. Overall, I think Swiatek has improved a lot in the new directing. In addition to the rest of her formidable game. It should have been enough for Swiatek to advance to the next stage of the WTA Montreal Masters.
Prediction: Swiatek in 3
