Barbora Krejcikova vs Wang Xinyu: Preview

Krejcikova has been absolutely relentless at the Prague Open. The second-seeded player is yet to drop a set in the tournament. Moreover, the way she went past Kateřina Siniaková in the quarter-final suggests that she is here to dominate the proceedings.

Barbora bageled Siniakova in the second set after cornering her in the first set as well. The Czech tennis star was stretched a little bit by Ysaline Bonaventure in the second-round clash. However, after winning the first set in the tie-breaker, Barbora thrashed her in the second set with ease.

The French Open 2021 finalist had a forgettable outing at Wimbledon where she was knocked out in the fourth-round encounter by champion Ashleigh Barty. However, the way she has started off at the Prague Open suggests that she is hungry for a title win.

On the other hand, Wang Xinyu has been tremendous touch as well. She has dropped just one set in the tournament so far and the way she thrashed Grace Min in straight sets in the quarter-finals suggests that she will not go down without putting a fierce fight in the semis.

Wang Xinyu has had a wonderful season. She even made it to the main draw at Wimbledon after putting up impressive performances in the qualifiers. However, the odds are overwhelmingly in the favor of Barbora Krejcikova. The Czech tennis star has been unstoppable throughout the tournament and she is expected to make her way into the finals without much trouble.

Prediction: Barbora Krejcikova to win in straight sets.
