Ann Li vs Alize Cornet: Preview
Ann Li enters the 3rd semi-final of the season as she defeats Irina-Camelia Begu 7-5, 7-5 to pick up her 2nd straight-set win this week in Spain. This will be the first semis appearance for the 21-year old American since she reached the last-4 of the 2021 Monterrey Open.
Alize Cornet also makes her way into the 3rd semi-final of the season as the former World No. 11 beat Anna Schmiedlova 6-3, 6-3 to book her spot in the last-4. Similar to Ann, she has also dropped only 1 set this week in Spain. Her last semi-final appearance came at the 2021 Chicago Women’s Open.
Ann Li vs Alize Cornet: Head to Head
This will be the third meeting between the duo who last met in the 1st round of the Chicago Women’s Open where Cornet won in a comeback 3-set win that levelled the head-to-head at 1-1.
Ann Li vs Alize Cornet: Prediction
Ann will come into the clash with a career Hardcourt record of 89-49 and is 17-8 on the surface this season while having a 21-13 record for the season across all surfaces. Alize will take the court with a career Hardcourt record of 197-159 and is 13-11 on Hardcourts this season and has a 25-24 season record across all surfaces.
Looking at these numbers, their past performances and recent results, it looks like Alize Cornet will be the one heading into the next round. Ann certainly has shown her skills this week but Cornet’s experience might just help her reach the finals against the young American.
Prediction: Alize Cornet to win in 3-sets.
