Putintseva vs Ostapenko: prediction for the WTA Indian Wells match
On October 11, Yulia Putintseva will play against Jelena Ostapenko in the third round of Indian Wells tournament. Who is closer to the victory? The answer is in our prediction.
In three most recent Indian Wells tournaments Yulia Putintseva was eliminated in the second round. However, she managed to break that streak in the current competition and advanced into the third round.
Putintseva got a difficult draw in this tournament. In the first round she played against an experienced player, Petkovic. Putintseva had to play a tiebreak in the first set, but a second one was much easier for her (7:6, 6:1). Then she played against another representative of Kazakhstan, Elena Rybakina. This time she had to play a tiebreak in the second set (6:2, 7:6).
Jelena Ostapenko has her own streak at Indian Wells. In two consecutive tournaments here she was eliminated in the third round and she reached that stage once again.
Ostapenko started in the second round and played only one match in the current tournament. Hsieh Su-Wei failed to create any problems to Ostapenko (6:3, 6:0). Now Latvian player is approaching the match against Putintseva, they already played against each other three times. Two of those matches were won by Kazakhstani player. We should note that all of those matches were held on hard surface.
In two out of three head-to-head matches a set exchange took place
This bet played in three head-to-head matches
There is no clear favourite in the upcoming match. Both players are too inconsistent, but they have high potential. Putintseva played two matches at Indian Wells against difficult opponents, but she put up a great performance. Putintseva already beat Ostapenko two times, so we think that Kazakhstani player will have more chances to advance into the round of 16 at Indian Wells.
Our prediction - Putintseva to win
