Day 6 of the Madrid Open will see both Emma Raducanu and Bianca Andreescu competing for a place in the quarterfinals of the tournament.
The former takes on Anhelina Kalinina while the latter faces 12th seed Jessica Pegula. In the other Round of 16 matches, 16th seed Elena Rybakina will square off against Jil Teichmann while Sara Sorribes Tormo will lock horns with Daria Kasatkina.
Here's a look at the odds and predictions for the matches taking place on Day 6 of the Madrid Open.
Emma Raducanu (-155) vs Anhelina Kalinina (+120)
US Open champion Emma Raducanu is the second-highest seed left in the competition. The Brit has been in fine form of late, having dropped only three games in her last three sets.
However, Anhelina Kalinina should not be written off considering the fact that she thrashed Garbine Muguruza in the second round.
Raducanu and Kalinina will meet for the first time, so the head-to-head currently stands at 0-0. The teenager is high on confidence at the moment and should be able to make her way into her maiden WTA 1000 quarterfinals without much trouble.
Pick: Emma Raducanu to win in three sets (+140) via Oddschecker.
Jessica Pegula (-110) vs Bianca Andreescu (-115)
2019 US Open champion Bianca Andreescu has fared extremely well in Madrid, considering this is just her second tournament since her return to the tour. The Canadian started with a three-set victory over Alison Riske, followed by a dominant straight-sets win against Danielle Collins.
Andreescu now faces another American in Jessica Pegula, who is seeded 12th in Madrid. Pegula reached the semifinals of the Miami Open last month and her path to the last 16 in Madrid has been similar to that of the Canadian. Pegula won her first-round match against Camila Giorgi in straight sets before ousting Kaia Kanepi.
Considering the quality of tennis Andreescu has played in Madrid so far, she might just prove too strong for Pegula.
Pick: Bianca Andreescu to win in three sets (+333) via Oddschecker.
Elena Rybakina (-300) vs Jil Teichmann (+220)
Elena Rybakina is one of only three seeded players left in the competition. The Kazakh faces Jil Teichmann for a place in the quarterfinals of a WTA 1000 claycourt event for the first time in her career.
Rybakina beat Oceane Dodin in straight sets in the opening round. She then bageled Katerina Siniakova in the first set of their second-round match, after which the Czech player was forced to retire due to injury.
Teichmann is having a dream tournament, with straight-sets wins over three-time champion Petra Kvitova as well as Leylah Fernandez.
Both players will meet for the first time, so the head-to-head currently stands at 0-0. Although Teichmann has ousted a couple of big names already, Rybakina might just have too much power for the Swiss to handle.
Pick: Elena Rybakina to win in three sets (+310) via Oddschecker.
Daria Kasatkina (-130) vs Sara Sorribes Tormo (+100)
Sara Sorribes Tormo is the only Spaniard still standing at the Madrid Open. She will square off against 2018 quarterfinalist Daria Kasatkina, who beat Maria Sakkari in the last 16.
Sorribes Tormo will be in good spirits after getting the better of Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Naomi Osaka in the previous rounds. This will be the Spaniard's first match against Kasatkina on the WTA tour, although the duo have faced off a couple of times on the ITF circuit.
Although Kasatkina has struggled for form of late, she will be high on condifnece after the win over Sakkari. She should be able to ride her wave of momentum to oust the only remaining Spaniard from the Madrid Open.
Pick: Daria Kasatkina to win in straight sets (+165) via Oddschecker.
