Sakkari vs Muchova Prediction
Maria Sakkari pulled out from this week’s Rabat Open with no word given on the reason of her withdrawal. But it appears the schedule was not going to work, possibly because she’s attained the desired level and fitness on clay for the 2023 French Open. Sakkari has a tough first-rounder on paper, taking on former World No. 19 Karolina Muchova who is unseeded and already owns two victories over her including at last year’s French Open. So Sakkari knows she’ll have her hands full once more. Muchova had had a long list of injuries throughout her career and it’s a shame we haven’t quite seen her full potential come into play. But so far in 2023, in 26 matches, she has only pulled out from one and has forged a 19-7 record. Muchova is one the most disciplined tennis players out there with her tennis IQ clearly well ahead of most players on the women’s tour. This is a dangerous draw for the World No. 8, and while Sakkari’s athleticism and rally tolerance will be huge assets, Muchova has the craft and variation to really tilt this match in her favor for the third time.
