Anna Blinkova will face fifth seed Dayana Yastremska in the second round of the 2024 San Diego Open. The match will be played on Thursday, February 29, 2024. Here's our Anna Blinkova vs Dayana Yastremska prediction.

Anna Blinkova

Anna Blinkova scored a fine comeback win over former World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki in her opening match. The contest took 24 games to decide, and it was a mirror result for the Dane, who lost by the same score of 6-1, 4-6, 1-6 to Maria Timofeeva at this year's Australian Open. Blinkova's patient point construction and her ability to keep the ball within the court proved critical as Wozniacki's serve and rally tolerance faded. It was the Russian's fourth win of the season and her first from a set down. Let's see if she can build on that result in her next outing.

Dayana Yastremska 

Dayana Yastremska, for her part, returned to winning ways at the San Diego Open. The Ukrainian has been one of the standout performers in the early phase of this season. She was a semifinalist at the 2024 Australian Open after streaking from qualifying. She is back in the world's Top 40 and picked up just her second win since departing Melbourne, beating American Caroline Dolehide 6-4, 5-7, 6-1. In a match of huge momentum shifts, it was Yastremska who was the more composed player down the stretch.

Anna Blinkova vs Dayana Yastremska Head-To-Head

This will be the first meeting between Anna Blinkova and Dayana Yastremska on the WTA Tour. However, they crossed paths at last year's WTA 125K event in Reus, where Yastremska won in straight sets. That match was played on clay.

Anna Blinkova vs Dayana Yastremska Prediction

Ranking notwithstanding, Yastremska is the slight favorite here because of her electric start to 2024. She's already into double digits on match wins this year. Blinkova has improved, too, and showed her wonderful court coverage in beating Wozniacki, who is a tough counterpuncher. But the upswing remains with the Ukrainian here, who should be winning this match.
