BNP Paribas Open, 🇺🇸🌴 Indian Wells R4 Prediction
🇯🇵 Naomi Osaka vs 🇬🇷 Maria Sakkari
I’m going to give the slight edge to Osaka here given how well Osaka has played this week. This should be a fairly close match between two of the tour’s rising stars. This will be the first time these two have gone head-to-head, a match-up that will feature an interesting contrast in styles. The flat, aggressive, powerful game of Osaka against the consistent baseline game of Sakkari who plays with more shape and variety. I think the aggressive game of Osaka just wins out here, on a clay court Sakkari would have the edge, but on a hard court, the edge goes to Osaka who has been very good this week.
