Prediction #1: Handicap (+5) for Kovinic
Sakkari is unstable in Parma. The Greek is having the most difficulty in the opening stages of matches, which all her opponents have taken advantage of, beating Maria in the first set. Kovinic is having one of her best tournaments of the season, leading 2-1 in head-to-head matches and is quite capable of putting up a serious fight against the seventh-ranked player in the world.
Prediction #2: Total Games Over 20
Sakkari’s three-match winning streak has reached eight matches. Kovinic in Parma exchanged sets with her opponents in two of the three meetings.
Preliminary review and pre-match prediction for Maria Sakkari vs Danka Kovinic
Maria Sakkari made it to the semi-finals of the Parma tournament. However, her performance was by no means a confident one. The seventh-ranked player in the world was the clear favourite of the bookmakers in three matches played, but she won all of them by a score of 2-1 in sets.
The duels against Baindl, Rus and Zanevska followed the same scenario. Maria was losing the first set, after which she started to play more actively and overpowered her opponents. There was no stability to speak of. So, in the match against Zanevska, the Greek made eight double faults, and six serve errors, but even with such unconvincing actions won with a final score of 2-6, 6-4, 6-4.
Maria Sakkari’s eight consecutive matches have ended in three sets.

Danka Kovinic made it to the semi-finals for only the second time this season at the WTA tournament level. She had her first such success back in April in Marbella, where she fell one step short of the final against Mayar Sheriff (5-7, 6-7).
In the opening two rounds at Parma, Kovinic defeated Oceane Dodin (6-1, 3-6, 6-4) and Sloane Stephens (7-5, 2-6, 7-5) in only three sets. However, in the quarterfinals, Montenegrin was more consistent and took a two-set win over Jasmine Paolini (6-4, 6-4).
