Petra Kvitova vs Madison Keys : 2020 Brisbane International Semifinals Betting Odds
Tournament eighth seed and World No13 Madison Keys has rolled out impressive performances in the Brisbane International to make it to the semifinals. She defeated tournament qualifier Marie Bouzkova. 6-3 6-2, in the first round, wildcard Samantha Stosur. 7-5 6-3, in the second round and Danielle Collins, 6-4 6-1, in the quarterfinals to secure a match against Kvitova. All of these matches ended in straight sets and the win against Collins. This gave the 2017 US Open finalist her first semifinal stint after four attempts. Keys attempts to extend her winning run to four matches this year against Kvitova and punch a ticket to the finals. The last time she met Kvitova was in the quarterfinals of the China Open where she won in three sets, 6-3 6-7 7-6.
After easing past Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the first round in three sets, 2-6 6-1 6-0, fifth seed and World No7 Petra Kvitova dispatched qualifiers Liudmila Samsonova and Jennifer Brady in straight sets to set up a showdown against Madison Keys. The two-time Wimbledon champion is two steps away from winning her second Brisbane International as the left-hander took home the title in 2011. The tournament conquest was memorable for the Czech tennis star as it kicked off an impressive season that saw her winning six titles, which included the Wimbledon Championships and the WTA Finals.
In her last match against Brady, who ousted five-time Grand Slam winner Maria Sharapova and World No1 Ashleigh Barty, Kvitova fought off the American qualifier’s strong start and settled down in the latter part of the first set en route to a 6-4 6-2 triumph. The lanky Czech netter overpowered Brady with 28 winners and served up eight aces to gain the opportunity to face Keys for the seventh time.

Petra Kvitova vs Madison Keys Picks
It is a toss up between Keys and Kvitova with both netters splitting their head-to-head matchups but the Czech netter is favored to win against his American rival for this semifinal pairing as she already won the tournament in 2011, according to WTA Premier betting. Keys, however, could not be discounted as she is riding on a hot streak of three-straight two set victories and she is hungrier than her Czech foe as it is her first semifinal in the tournament. Kvitova will beat Keys in three sets and qualify for the finals.
