Angelique Kerber - Daria Kasatkina Rogers Cup

Featured Comment

Daria Kasatkina is coming at this tournament after a poor performance at Silicon Valley Open where she was eliminated in the second round by Svitolina. She's struggling a lot in the recent months as she won only won match since the French Open. 

This tournament has been pretty good for Kasatkina because she reached the quarterfinals here in 2016. Last year she was eliminated in the second round. Now it's going to be even tougher for her as she is playing against one of the best players in the world. 

Even though Angelique Kerber was eliminated in the second round at Wimbledon she actually had some good performances in the last months as she reached the final at Eastbourne International and right before Wimbledon she reached semi-finals at Mallorca Open. It looks like Kerber is prepared for this tournament and her form is pretty good. 

Just like Kasatkina, Kerber optained her best result at Rogers Cup in 2016 when she reached the semi-finals. Last year she was eliminated in the second round. 

This two players have meet 6 times before and each of them have an equal number of victories so the score is tied between the two of them. 

In my opinion Kerber is the stronger opponent in this match and she's also in better form. Daria Kasatkina didn't have any good performances in the recent months and she's struggling to win matches. Kerber is playing some solid tennis and with a lot of confidence wich is going to be just enough to beat Kasatkina in this match. 

My pick for this match is Kerber to win.
