Maria Sakkari v Bianca Andreescu Head to Head
It’s 1-1 between the two ladies; they last met in the 2021 US Open fourth round, where Sakkari won in three sets.
Sakkari in a Brilliant Form
Number seven seed Maria Sakkari is having quite an eventful season. With close to a million dollars already racked up in prize money, the Greek looks primed to deliver another brilliant performance.
She has arrived in Miami with a record of 15-6, which includes semifinal showings in the United Cup, Linz, Doha, and, most recently, Indian Wells.
Through these tournaments, Sakkari has beaten many big names like Caroline Garcia, Donna Vekic, Karolina Pliskova, and Petra Kvitova.
Now ranked World No. 10, Maria had a superb spell in 2022, where she clocked 40-23. Even though she hasn’t won a singles title since 2019, she did reach four finals last year. The 27-year-old was also a semifinalist in Miami in 2021.

Andreescu Upsets Raducanu
Bianca Andreescu was off to a solid start as she beat the English prodigy Emma Raducanu 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 in the opening match.
The 22-year-old Canadian is trying to stage a resurgence after a few bleak spells on the tour due to her injury. There is no doubt about her skills, having already won the US Open, Indian Wells Open, and Canadian Open in 2019. She was also a runner-up here a couple of years ago.
Bianca’s record for the season stands at 7-6, with her best result coming in Hua Hin, where she was a semifinalist.
Since then, she has lost her first-round fixtures in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, while in Palm Springs, she fell to Iga Swiatek in the third round. The current World No. 31 clearly has her work cut out for her.
Andreescu v Sakkari Prediction and Tip
It is going to be a tight affair. Both players are known for their big service games, and while Sakkari is the odds-on favourite here, she will need to approach this one carefully. Andreescu has the experience and skill set needed to upset the Greek, but her rustiness may make things difficult for her.
The 2023 WTA Miami Masters will be played from March 20 to April 2. You can get all the tennis betting news with our tennis betting blog here. Also, get the rest of the tennis match previews here.
