Bertens vs Bacsinszky by Igrok
French Open, quarterfinal, clay
Bertens (58) will play against Bacsinszky (9)
Bertens is on 11 match-winning streak now, and won against Kerber, Giorgi, Kasatkina and Keys. She dropped a set twice in this tournament and this will be her best result so far in Paris. Bacsinszky is 14/2 on clay this season and she has to defend last year’s semifinal. She defeated Soler-Espinosa, Bouchard, Parmentier and Venus Williams. The latter had no answer to Bacsinszky’s defensive abilities hitting only 6 winners and 24 unforced errors. She has yet to drop a set and conceded maximum 8 games.
Bertens has clearly the momentum but also Timea who is better tactically in my opinion. Bertens is solid, very good first serve but Timea knows how to deal with power especially on clay. She also has more variety on her game, drop shot, fantastic cross backhand which will unsettle the opponent.
