World No.8 Paula Badosa is coming off a three-set win over Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk in the previous round. The Spaniard began her 2022 season with a loss to Victoria Azarenka in the first round of the WTA Adelaide International. She bounced back from it by winning the WTA Sydney International by defeating third seed Barbora Krejcikova in the final. The Spaniard has now reached the fourth round at Melbourne defeating local favourite Ajla Tomljanovic 6-4, 6-0 in the first round and Martina Trevisan 6-0, 6-3 in the second round.

Meanwhile, her opponent Madison Keys too is coming off a three-set win in the previous round, over Wang Qiang in her case. The American had a disappointing last season as well, her ranking plummeted to 65 and she finished outside the top-20 for the first time in seven years. The former World No.7 was forced to sit out at last year’s Australian Open after she tested positive for COVID-19. However, she did start the 2022 season well, clinching the WTA 500 Adelaide International 2 title to start her season.

Paula Badosa will be the definite favourite here, as she is one of the favourites to clinch the title. The Spaniard has started the tournament well and would look to challenge for the title or atleast reach very deep into the tournament. Meanwhile, despite Keys’ amazing start to the new season and apparent shrugging off of her poor form, the American would still be an underdog in this clash.

Match Prediction-  Badosa to win in straight sets.
