BNP Paribas Open, 🇺🇸🌴 Indian Wells R4 Prediction
🇩🇰 (2) Caroline Wozniacki vs. 🇷🇺 (20) Daria Kasatkina
I’m going to give the slight edge to Daria Kasatkina in this match-up. The main reason for picking Kasatkina is that the surface certainly favours the Russian in this match-up. Kasatkina is a troublesome match-up for Wozniacki because Kasatkina can match the Dane’s movement whilst Kasatkina’s forehand is the heaviest shot in this match-up, a shot that is especially dangerous on this surface. Kasatkina has more variety and is the more dynamic player. Wozniacki has not been too impressive in her first couple of matches this week, perhaps the long couple of months she has had is taking its toll on her. Kasatkina will also enter this match with confidence given she defeated Wozniacki just last month in St. Petersburg in straight sets. Leaning towards Kasatkina.
