Caroline Garcia - Anhelina Kalinina predictions and free betting tips [28/09/2023]
In the 1/8 finals of the championship in Tokyo played on the hard court, Caroline Garcia from France will face Anhelina Kalinina from Ukraine. My bet is on Garcia to claim victory.
The 29-year-old Caroline, currently ranked 10th in the world, previously participated in the Guadalajara tournament and made it to the semi-finals, defeating Sasnovich 4:6, 7:6 (7:5), 6:4, Baptiste 7:5, 6:4 and Azarenka 6:3, 6:4, but then lost to Sakkari 3:6, 0:6. Earlier, in San Diego, Garcia emerged victorious over Stevens 6:3, 3:6, 6:1, but later fell to Collins 2:6, 3:6, was defeated by Wan in the first match of the US Open 4:6, 1:6, and reached the quarter-finals in Cleveland, defeating Fruhvirtova 6:3, 6:2 and Stirn 7:6 (7:4), 6:3, but later lost to Zhu Lin 4:6, 1:6.
Prior to this, Garcia suffered four consecutive losses: in Cincinnati to Stevens 6:4, 4:6, 4:6, in Montreal to Bouzkova 4:6, 6:4, 2:6, and in Washington to Kostyuk 2:6, 3:6. At Wimbledon, the player prevailed over Volynets 6:4, 6:3 and Fernandez 3:6, 6:4, 7:6 (10:6), but then bowed to Bouzkova 6:7 (0:7), 6:4, 5:7. In June, in Eastbourne, Caroline made it to the quarter-finals, defeating Brengle and Bogdan, but was forced to retire from her match against Kasatkina at 2:6, 1:2 due to injury. The athlete also participated in the Berlin tournament, where she defeated Lisicki and Forliz, but lost to Kvitova.
Among Garcia's successful performances, it's worth noting her feat of reaching the finals at the Monterrey tournament on hard court in March, as well as the Lyon final in February.
26-year-old Anhelina, ranked 28th in the world, claimed her first victory in the Tokyo tournament against Kruger, scoring 6:3, 6:1. Prior to this, the tennis player participated in the Guadalajara championship and overcame Min, but lost to Kenin; at the San Diego tournament, she defeated Kalinina 7:6 (7:4), 0:6, 6:3, but later fell to Krejcikova, 3:6, 2:6.
From the end of May, the tennis player encountered difficulties: out of 16 matches played, she managed to win only 5. At the US Open, and also at the tournaments in Montreal, Washington, Eastbourne and the French Open she lost in the early rounds to Sorribes-Tormo 4:6, 5:7, Stevens 4:6, 6:7 (2:7), Brady 2:6, 1:6, Kasatkina 3:6, 1:6 and Parry 2:6, 3:6.
At the tournaments in Cleveland, Cincinnati and Wimbledon, Angelina made it to the second round, defeating Bogdan, Zhu Lin and Buzas Maneiro, but then surrendered to Maria, Jabeur and Andreescu. In Birmingham and Nottingham, Kalinina defeated Parks and Parry, but then couldn't stand up to Dart. At the French Open, she also failed to demonstrate her best tennis and lost to Parry in the first match.
At the end of May, Kalinina showed positive results at the Rome tournament, where she made it to the finals. She defeated Blinkova, Kenin, Keys, Haddad Maia and Kudermetova, but a final match against Rybakina had to be stopped due to injury. Before that, Kalinina had a track of 5 losses in 6 matches, her participation ended in the early rounds in Miami after a defeat by Kenin, in Charleston by Kalinskaya and in Madrid by Sherif. In the other tournaments this season, Angelina could not string together more than two consecutive victories.
The players have not previously faced each other.
