2022 Australian Open Women’s Quarters Predictions
The women’s quarterfinals of the 2022 Australian Open are set! Here’s our preview and predictions.
Ash Barty (1) vs. Jessica Pegula (21)
Pegula has had a good run. However, that run ends right here. With the kind of game Ash has been displaying and the home crowd cheerfully behind her, Barty is the overwhelming favorite to win this tournament. Kudos to Pegula for reaching her second Grand Slam quarterfinal of her career. She dismantled a very good player in Sakkari in the Round of 16 and the future looks brighter than ever. Nevertheless, Barty wins in two sets.
Borbora Krejcikova (4) vs. Madison Keys
It is really nice to see Madison Keys back in full fitness, both mentally and physically. She had a pretty good run here at the Australian Open. Unfortunately for Madison, Krejcikova is in top form and will be a nasty opponent to overcome. Krejcikova has too many weapons for this version of Madison Keys. Krejcikova wins in straight sets.
Danielle Collins (27) vs. Alize Cornet
What a story Cornet has been throughout this Australian Open. The 32-year-old veteran possibly playing her last Australian Open just made her first-ever Grand Slam quarterfinal, beating two-time world number one Simona Halep along the way. Cornet now faces one of our favorite players, Danielle Collins. Collins is full of grit and purpose and has been here before. As many can remember, Collins made the semifinals of the Australian Open in 2019. We think she has a very good shot at making the semifinals again. Collins wins in three sets.
Iga Swiatek (7) vs. Kaia Kanepi
Kanepi is the oldest woman in the quarters at 36 years of age. With this quarterfinal appearance, she has now made the quarters at least once in every Grand Slam. Congratulations Kanepi! She now faces rising star Swiatek in the quarters. Kanepi will not have enough to hold the youngster at bay. Swiatek has too much mobility and power and is on track to meet Barty in the final. Swiatek wins in two sets.
