Johanna Konta – Margarita Gasparyan Match Prediction | 28-08-2019 11:00

In a stylish clash between two resurgent comeback kids of the tour, Margarita Gasparyan will face Petra Martic for a place in the quarterfinal. The backhand down the line is a shot that earns her big wins, and it is something to look out for as she tries to take down the Martic forehand side regularly. Gasparyan earned her second Top 10 win of her career when she beat Elina Svitolina in the first round, and her aggressive brand of tennis is something that matches up impressively to these quicker conditions on the grass courts. Gasparyan is one of the rare players that uses a one-handed backhand in the womens game, and that single shot that allows her to take over points with one stroke or two because of the effortless way she can change direction with it.

The best result of this season won him last week in Rabat, where he played the final of the tournament, being defeated by Maria Sakkari. This year he played few tournaments in the WTA circuit, starting in the year with a defeat in the second round of the Australian Open. In the first round of Madrid he passed the minimum of sets of Alison Riske. In the home tour, from St. Petersburg, just passed the qualifying picture, being defeated in the first round by Victoria Azarenka.

WTA Birmingham Day 3 Predictions Including Johanna Konta vs Jelena Ostapenko

Currently ranked third in the WTA ranking. Since March he has been working with the new coach, Daniel Dobre, and he has been giving up physicist Andrei Cristofor. Try to defend during this time the points earned last year, 2018 being the best of the career, and clay is its favorite surface. Madrid seems to feel great, winning this tournament twice in the past.

Second round matches begin on Day 3 at the Nature Valley Classic in Birmingham, and there are plenty of top names on the schedule. Have a look at our predictions as we dissect the best matches of Day 3! The match of the day, without question, is British No.1 Johanna Kontas match against former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko.

Shes one of the top players that are still finding their game on the surface. One thing that will be interesting is how both players react to the peculiar, unique situation of playing a huge match against a relative. Karolina Pliskova was very good in her first match back on the grass, where she beat Mihaela Buzarnescu with not much trouble. Shes won titles and achieved big things here, but she still hasnt found the winning formula at Wimbledon just yet.

He also played well in Indian Wells and Miami, where he achieved the finals of the finals and semifinals. The only match this season has played in Rouen in the Fed Cup against France, winning two victories against Kristina Mladenovic and Caroline Garcia, but these are insufficient. In the first round he managed an easy victory against Margarita Gasparyan, score 6-0 6-4. Simones season has been consistent so far, being very close to winning the Doha title in February.

Simona Halep will be hoping to make it three titles in the past four years at Madrid, with the event being one of the standouts for the 2018 French Open champion. Halep will play RussiasMargarita Gasparyan,who qualified for the event. The winner will face either Alison Riske or Johanna Konta in the second round, with the latter coming off a final in Rabat.

Unfortunately for Konta, the matches dont come any easier as she tries to take down a Grand Slam champion in Ostapenko. Konta recognised that that was a match that was totally in her hands, but she needed to find a way to be the aggressor and focus on getting the first strike in each rally. On the whole, she steadied herself well on serve in the important moments. Konta won a very good match in the first round against Anett Kontaveit.

Prediction

It looks like she is finally getting back to her best, having qualified thanks to wins over Mona Barthel and Jennifer Brady. She was noted in her initial run for her strong one handed backhand and also was a solid doubles player, once making the French Open semi final. It feels like it shouldnt be long before she gets close to or surpasses her current high of 41, with an Istanbul semi final previously putting her in a confident mood. Gasparyan was once a top 50 player but has been out of the picture for a long while having had numerous injuries.
