Stats Of The Players
Both the players have given their all in the competition and will be looking to go all the way. The French star Kristina Mladenovic had a career of ups and downs. As mentioned earlier, the tennis player managed to reach the 10th rank worldwide but could not hold it for long. She has been having a couple of rough seasons, to begin with, in the singles category. Currently, 28 years old, Mladenovic still has a long way to go in her career. But speaking about her doubles career, she managed to reach world no.1 in the doubles category. Apart from four grand slams, she has even managed to reach the grand slam final twice in the last three seasons.
Coming back to Slovenia Open 2021, Kristina Mladenovic reached her best in a singles tournament in this WTA 250 category tournament by reaching the quarterfinal. Her single best was in the second round when she defeated Ana Konjuh 6-0, 6-4. On the other hand, Mladenovic’s opponent Alison Riske is a 31-year-old tennis player. Her form has been a bit shaky lately. The Wuhan Open in 2019 was the last time she reached a WTA final. Since then, she has failed to prevail. In this tournament, her best match was against Viktoria Kuzmova in the second round. With a 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 score, she got her victory with an awesome comeback.
Kristina Mladenovic and Alison Riske came face to face with each other five times. They last met at the 2017 Wimbledon, where Alison Riske won. But on the other four occasions, Kristina Mladenovic prevailed. But this will be the first time they face each other on the hard courts. All the others were on clay court and grass court.
Kristina Mladenovic Vs Alison Riske: Prediction
The match will be toe to toe with none each of them giving their level best. Even though Kristina is younger than the American Alison Riske, she has a better experience in bigger tournaments. On the other hand, Alison Riske will give her all to win her first Slovenia Open. Either way, the match is going to go in Kristina Mladenovic’s favor. All the sets will be won by her, and she will qualify for the semi-finals. This is my thought based on their stats, composure, and experience. But nothing is certain in this type of sport, and this is a quarterfinal.
