Veronika Kudermetova vs. Arantxa Rus – Prediction – WTA Linz (Austria) 12.11.2020

H2H: Veronika Kudermetova v Arantxa Rus – comparison.

Kudermetova has beaten Rus in both of their previous encounters in straight sets. She prevailed 6-2, 6-4 in the first round of Bucharest, a clay-court tournament, in July 2019 and reprised that result in the qualifyings of last month’s Ostrava run, 7-5, 6-2. The Russian remains the favorite to solve the world no. 72 for the third time.

Veronika Kudermetova utterly humiliated Linz native and wildcard Barbara Haas to open her debut campaign at the Upper Austrian tournament. She punished the poor-serving world no. 148, 6-0, 6-0, in 53 minutes as Haas put less than half of her first serves in and failed to convert either of her two break point chances. While it has been a slow season for the Russian in comparison to her breakthrough 2019, Kudermetova is coming off a commendable run at Ostrava, an indoor Premier tournament in Czech Republic. She played as a qualifier and defeated Ka. Pliskova and Vekic en route her second quarterfinal of the season (after Hobart, SF).

Arantxa Rus took advantage of Tamara Zidansek’s non-existent form and breezed past the Slovenian, 6-4, 6-4, in 71 minutes. This is the first time she has cleared the first round of Upper Austria Ladies Linz, where she has competed four times in the past — lost its qualifyings in 2011 and 2018-19, and its 2012 first round. Rus now owns eight main draw wins on tour this season, which is double her 2019 count. While the previous season was short in WTA results, it saw the Dutchwoman win ten W25 titles and return to the top 100. The soon-to-be 30-year-old is seeking her eighth career WTA quarterfinal and the second of 2020 (Monterrey, SF).
