Ostapenko vs Niemeier: prediction for the WTA Luxembourg match
Ostapenko and Niemeier will close out the matchday of Luxembourg tournament on September 14. Latvian player is the current champion of the tournament. Will Jelena record an easy victory?
Jelena Ostapenko managed to step up during the season and now she is in a great form. Of course some of her tournaments are unsuccessful due to her inconsistency. Elena won a title of 2021 Eastbourne tournament on the grass. In the recent New York tournament Latvian player reached the third round, where she was beaten by Kerber (6:4, 2:6, 5:7).
Throughout her career Ostapenko is performing successfully on indoor courts. She has a great wins-losses record (74-31). Ostapenko won the Luxembourg tournament in 2019. She recorded a victory over Gorges in the final match (6:4, 6:1). Tournament was not held in the previous year, so Ostapenko will defend her points and will try to put up her best performance here.
Only in 2021 Jule Niemeier made a name of herself in WTA level. Since the start of the year German player reached the semi-final of clay tournaments in Strasbourg and Hamburg. She also reached the quarter-final of Chicago tournament on hard.
Niemeier already played two qualifying matches in Luxembourg. She recorded victories in three sets over Papadakis and Smitkova.
This bet was successful in three most recent matches of Ostapenko
In two most recent matches qualifying matches in Luxembourg Niemeier played two tiebreaks
Ostapenko is looking better in recent tournaments and throughout the season, she is currently in a great form. Ostapenko's aggressive style of play is a great fit for fast surfaces. We think that Latvian player will start at Luxembourg with a confident victory over Niemeier.
