M.Sakkari - K.Muchova
In the third round of the WTA tournament in Madrid, a duel between Marie Sakkari and Karolina Muchova awaits us.
Sakkari is one of the best physically prepared players on the tour, she can withstand very long exchanges without her concentration dropping. She moves very well on the clay field, she fits perfectly and this year she lost only to Kvitova on clay. Here she is in the first round had small problems with Anisimov and lost the first set but later turned it around, while in the second round she easily defeated Kontaveit.
Muchova made a surprise victory over Osaka in the last round, but everyone knew that Osaka would stumble on clay because her style of play simply did not suit this surface. In addition, in the first round, she easily beat Qiang Wang.
Sakkari is closer to victory for me here, precisely because of her physical fitness and somewhat greater experience of playing on the big stage.
