PREVIEW & TIPS Naomi Osaka VS Maria Sakkari

For a place in the quarter-finals at Indian Wells, two players will be ranked in the top 40 WTA seats. Naomi Osaka and Maria Sakkari were impressed at the current US competition, in which they did not lose even a set in the three games won. You can then read the party’s analysis, and at the end the tip provided.

Naomi Osaka News

Naomi Osaka has moderated his game since working with Sascha Bajin, the former training partner of Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki. The 20-year-old Nipona has a lot of execution force, is capable of sending winnings from any corner of the court. In the first two rounds, he had two more galloping opponents like Sharapova and Radwanska, but he defeated them both relatively easily in two sets. There followed the game with Saschia Vickery, who had eliminated Muguruza, where she had a clean, sprinkled tennis with high percentages on both the first and the second ball. Qualifying in Round 4 at Indian Wells is the best performance at a Premier Mandatory level competition. Good marks in Osaka’s game came from Dubai, where he defeated Kontaveit and Mladenovic, and struck Svitolina a little in quarters, but he could not pass. A high 1.80 meter player, Naomi has already won 12 wins in the first nine weeks of this year, almost half as much as the previous season (28). The morale is excellent, and executions are highly effective.

Naomi Osaka VS Maria Sakkari STATS

At the first direct meeting, Sakkari and Osaka do not have the necessary experience at this high level. However, if we look at what the two have done this year and not only, the nipon has a pretty obvious advantage. Osaka comes after a very good start of the season, showing a lot of confidence. He has solved his temperament problems, he does not hurry between points and is able to defend himself. From this point of view, she has made visible progress, and Maria Sakkari will find it very difficult to break the opponent’s game from the bottom of the field. Higher by 8 centimeters than his opponent, Osaka has a better service and can generate more force in blows. I expect to continue with good shape and reach the quarter-finals at Indian Wells.

Maria Sakkari News

Maria Sakkari is one of the big surprises in this tournament. Although it is ranked 58th in the world, the athlete in Greece has entered a shadow after the fantastic week of September 2017 in Wuhan. Sakkari made his semifinals, climbed over 50 places in the WTA hierarchy, followed by the rebound. Until Acapulco on February 27, 2018, he did not win any matches on the main board of a WTA racing, even if he had started at 6 such competitions. Prepared by former big Swedish champion Thomas Johansson, Sakkari rediscovered his high-quality tennis at Indian Wells and defeated Vekic, Barty and, most recently, Coco Vandeweghe – an impressive track-record through his name. However, to advance to the quarterts he needs a very good defensive, which I doubt he can succeed in front of Naomi Osaka. Coco Vandeweghe was near to the end of the second set, because he hit hard and pushed it behind the bottom line on the Greek player. At the key moment, Coco made a mistake and gave her a qualifying gift. I tend to think that Osaka will not do the same, especially if I judge as he did with the first three opponents. Sakkari has a good forehand hit, but if he starts attacking that part, the execution becomes softer and less dangerous. Things are usually good for the Greek when driving, but if the table is not on its side, it gets tense and causes more unprovoked errors.
