Vondrousova vs Konta predictions


Teenage sensation Marketa Vondrousova takes on former top five player Johanna Konta in the Internazionali BNL d’Italia quarter-finals in Rome on Friday.

What a debut it’s been for the 19-year-old Vondrousova in Rome this week - she’s advanced to the quarter-finals on the back of trio of gruelling three-set battles, including scoring her second win over Simona Halep this season, while she also conquered Daria Kasatkina in the same day on Thursday.

Vondrousova is a superb 22-5 for the season and has been flying under the radar, but the Czech is starting to announce herself as a Grand Slam contender of the future with her performances this season, especially after backing up her Indian Wells triumph over Halep by beating the reigning French Open champion again, this time on clay.

After reaching quarter-finals in Indian Wells and Miami, can Vondrousova go one step further in Rome? She’s 4/5 @ Ladbrokes to win on Friday.

Meanwhile, Konta is quietly putting together a great clay season to date, backing up her runner-up finish in Rabat by reaching the quarter-finals of a Premier-5 clay event for the first time in Rome this week.

Konta began her campaign by beating Alison Riske - as she did last week in Madrid - before notching up impressive wins over French Open runner-up Sloane Stephens and former No. 1 Venus Williams to reach the last eight. The Brit has been searching for her best form for the last 18 months - has she found it on the unlikely destination of Roman clay? Konta is 21/20 @ Unibet to prevail and make the semis.

Vondrousova vs Konta match stats


  • Vondrousova won their only previous clash in Indian Wells last year

Vondrousova vs Konta betting tips


It’s great to see Konta getting back to some of her best tennis, but I think her run ends on Friday. Vondrousova is a genuine star of the future and her powerful left-handed game is translating well to all surfaces. There is a chance the 19-year-old could be a bit fatigued after so many three-setters already this week, but if she can play like she did against Halep - and execute that signature drop shot - she is the deserved favourite in this match-up on clay.
