Keyes vs Pavlyuchenkova: prediction for the WTA Indian Wells match
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Madison Keyes played four head-to-head matches, each of the players recorded two victories. Who will record a victory in the second round of Indian Wells tournament on October 8? The answer is in our prediction.
2021 season is not the best one for Madison Keyes. A former World No. 7 player recorded only 11 victories in 25 matches, she is currently only at 50th spot in the WTA standings.
Keyes managed to interrupt her string of six consecutive victories at Indian Wells. She recorded a victory over Kaia Kanepi (6:0, 7:5). In the first set Keyes completely destroyed her opponent. Though, second set turned out to be much harder for the American player, she had to come back from behind and she managed to do so only due to a terrible performance by the Estonian player at her serve.
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is still hoping to finish the current season at Top-10, but most recent tournaments were unsuccessful for the Russian player. Pavlyuchenkova is currently at the 13th position in WTA rankings.
Pavlyuchenkova will start the Indian Wells tournament in the second round. In two most recent tournaments Russian player won only one match: she recorded a victory over Konjuh (7:6, 6:1) at Ostrava. She was eliminated from this tournament by Martincova (6:7, 6:7) and then Pavlyuchenkova was beaten by Vondrousova (3:6, 2:6) at Chicago. We should note that in 2017 Pavlyuchenkova reached the quarter-final of Indian Wells tournament.
This bet won in each of four most recent head-to-head matches
In each of four most recent head-to-head matches Keyes and Pavlyuchenkova played more than nine games in the first set
Russian player is looking better in 2021 season. Pavlyuchenkova already recorded a victory over Keyes this year, it happened at Madrid tournament (7;5, 6:2). Pavlyuchenkova is fighting hard to get into the Top-10, so she will be extremely motivated to get a victory over the American player. We are expecting a victory from Pavlyuchenkova at Indian Wells.
