Unseeded Jil Teichmann will go head-to-head against second seed Petra Kvitova tomorrow in the quarterfinals. This is their second meeting of 2021, and the two are set to take the court at 12 pm ET.

As the second seed, Kvitova received a first round bye, and is coming off a Round of 16 win over unseeded Anastasia Potapova. Teichmann did compete in the Round of 32, upsetting sixth seed Angelique Kerber, and most recently Alison Riske in three sets.

Teichmann Upsets

The 24-year old Swiss upset Angelique Kerber in the first round in straight sets to earn a spot in the Round of 16, where she defeated American Alison Riske 6-3, 1-6, 6-4.

Teichmann entered the match on a high, having just sent home the sixth seed a day earlier, and continued the momentum into the first set. But she let her guard down in the set, when an aggressive Riske was not ready to give up, and ultimately forced a deciding set. She converted five of seven breakpoints she had, while landing 65 percent of her first serves. She’ll look to improve those numbers moving forward, but it was enough to book her a spot in the quarters.

The Swiss will now look towards her toughest opponent of the tournament, but a familiar one, Kvitova.

The Favorite

The first of the final eight to confirm her spot in the quarterfinals, second seed Kvitova defeated Anastasia Potapova in a three set match, winning 6-1, 6-7(4), 6-3, in just over two hours.

On route to the quarterfinals, Kvitova saved six of eight breakpoints, and was able to convert five of the nine she had. There was nothing super overwhelming about her performance earlier on Thursday. Her four aces were countered by her five double faults, but she managed to land 70 percent of her first serves. And when landing her first serve, she managed to win the point 64 percent of the time.

Head-to-Head

This is the second meeting between Teichmann and Kvitova, and their second meeting of 2021. Their one and only previous match came earlier this year in the Round of 32 in Dubai, where Teichmann ended up winning due to Kvitova retiring from the match at 4-3 in the second set.

Best Bet

Kvitova will be entering this match looking to avenge her loss that took place earlier this year. As mentioned, she had to retire in her previous match against Teichmann, so she’ll be looking to do everything in her power not to have that happen again.

Both players have a very well rounded game, with a similar style of play. Both will be looking for their strong groundstrokes and baseline play, along with their serves to come into play. We’ve seen a bit more variety from Kvitova this tournament, then Teichmann, but the Swiss has been the most consistent from the backcourt.

If Kvitova can keep her high intensity, and continue to play in the form that she is, there’s no reason why she can’t move on in this tournament. The match might go the distance, depending on how each player comes out, but look for Kvitova to have the edge.

Best Bet: Kvitova 2-0 (+105)
