Match Predict – Handicap (-1.5) for Samsonova
Badosa will play her first match after injury and missing the Australian Open. It is unlikely that the Spanish player will be ready to play her best. Especially as she will be playing against an uncomfortable opponent. We think Samsonova will make it to the second round of this pair.
Total Games Over 21
We expect the match to be a long one. Still, Samsonova is far from her peak form, and Badosa has a powerful serve in her arsenal. In addition, in their last face-to-face match, the two players played three sets.
Preliminary review and pre-match prediction for Paula Badosa vs Ludmilla Samsonova
Paula will play her first match since her injury. She could not compete at the Australian Open due to a hip problem.
However, before that, Badosa reached the semi-finals in Adelaide. She defeated Anett Kontaveit (6-4, 6-3), Kaia Kanepi (6-1, 7-5) and Beatriz Haddad-Maia (7-6, 7-5) without dropping a single set.
Badosa was then scheduled to play against Daria Kasatkina but ended up having to withdraw due to injury.
In the 2021 season, Badosa made it to two rounds at the Abu Dhabi tournament.
In four of Paula Badosa’s last five hard-court matches, more than 20 games have been played.

Samsonova, meanwhile, has failed at the start of the season. After last year’s breakthrough, she was expected to do quite differently.
However, for the tournaments in January, Ludmilla was not ready.
In the first tournament in Adelaide, Ludmilla lost in the second round to the future Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka (6:7, 6:7).
At the second tournament in Adelaide, Samsonova lost immediately to Amanda Anisimova (5-7, 3-6). At the Australian Open, she was stopped already in the second round by Donna Vekic (3:6, 0:6).
Ludmilla Samsonova has lost three of their last five meetings.
