Kerber vs Kasatkina: prediction for the WTA Indian Wells match
Kerber and Kasatkina played eight head-to-head matches against each other and each one of the players recorded four victories. Who will record a victory at Indian Wells on October 11?
Angelique Kerber was searching for her game since the start of the season and she needed some time to gain form. An experienced German player started to perform well since June. She was looking good during the grass part of the season and then extended success on hard surface. A World No. 15 player reached the semi-final of Cincinnati tournament and then reached the round of 16 at US Open.
In the first match of Indian Wells tournament Kerber played against a comfortable opponent, Siniakova. But this time it was a difficult match for the German player (6:1, 6:7, 7:5). Kerber lost six games at her serve and won only 56% of points at the first serve.
Daria Kasatkina took a long break after US Open, she didn't play a single match in a month. At New York Russian player was beaten in the third round by Svitolina (4:6, 2:6).
Kasatkina started the Indian Wells tournament in the second round with a match against Astra Sharma. It was a difficult start for Kasatkina, she was losing 3:4 in the first set, but at this time her opponent chose to withdrew herself from the match. Kasatkina didn't play a full match, so it is hard to assess her current form.
