Paula Badosa v Daria Kasatkina Head to Head
There have been two previous meetings between these two players and both have won one apiece. The first came at the 2022 Sydney International and it was Badosa who creamed her opponent in straight sets to move into the final.
Kasatkina had her revenge when she registered a 6-4, 6-4 win against Badosa in Rome more recently.
Badosa Gets Past Favourite Gauff
Cori Gauff had entered her quarterfinal match against Badosa on the back of a straight-set win over Naomi Osaka and riding high on confidence.
That Badosa cast a spell around her to register a 7-6 (4), 6-2 victory over the talented American should give her a lot of hope coming into this semifinal.
Badosa needed less than an hour and a half to claim the win, overcoming breaks of serves in successive games – the third and the fifth in the first set. She broke back immediately on one of those occasions and then again as Gauff served for the first set to push it into a tie-breaker.
In the second set, it was all one-way traffic as she broke her American opponent twice while not facing a single break-point.
Can she now put something similar on display against Kasatkina too?

Kasatkina Sends Sabalenka on a Run
After having defeated the Wimbledon winner Elena Rybakina in the first round and overcome Taylor Townsend in the second, Kasatkina turned her attention on Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka in the quarterfinals.
The Russian world number 12 overcame a one set deficit, and a case of poor serving from both players, to win 4-6, 7-5, 6-0 and seal her spot in the semifinals.
Despite facing six breaks of serves and being on court for two hours and 23 minutes in her ouster of the world number six, Kasatkina would be rather happy with her performance, especially the kind of comeback she dished out.
The final set was especially spectacular, as she broke Sabalenka three times from the six chances she got but at the same time improved to face no break-points whatsoever.
Badosa v Kasatkina Prediction and Tip
Here are two players in supreme form and coming off solid wins over tough opponents. Difficult to call a winner on this one but the chances of a long-drawn encounter look bright.
