2020 Tokyo Olympics Gold Medallist Belinda Bencic has not enjoyed much success ever since her historic gold medal. The Swiss was made to work hard during her 2nd round encounter with Maddison Inglis with the Australian taking Belinda to 3-sets. Belinda won the tie 5-7, 6-1, 6-0 to advance ahead after having received a bye in the 1st round.

Tereza Martincova continues her good run in Chicago as she defeats Slovakia’s Tamara Zidansek 6-2, 7-5 to pick up her 2nd straight-set victory this week after having won her 1st round in straight-sets as well. Tereza, similar to Belinda, comes from a quarter-final defeat at the recently concluded 2021 Ostrava Open.

Tereza will come into the clash with a career Hardcourt record of 99-76 and is 19-9 on the surface for the season while having an overall surface record of 38-23 for the season. Belinda will take the court with a career Hardcourt record of 150-79 and is 21-8 for the season on the surface while being 33-18 across all surfaces this season.

Looking at the numbers and their recent forms, both the players are more or less sailing in the same boat and there’s nothing much to separate the two. However, Belinda remains the favourite for the tie for her better consistency this season and some good runs in major tournaments.

Prediction: Belinda Bencic to win in straight-sets.
