Petra Kvitova v Linda Noskova Head to Head
This will be their first meeting on the WTA Tour.
Noskova Moves Past Bronzetti
18-year-old Linda Noskova comfortably defeated Lucia Bronzetti in the first round of Miami Open 2023, beating the Italian 6-3, 6-4. It was a routine win for the teenager, who maintained an impressive 75% first-service win rate.
With this, Noskova is now 13-5 in 2023 and enjoying life as the new World No. 51. In 2021, she was ranking outside the top 250 and in just two years, she has closed that gap on the back of two phenomenal seasons. She won a total of 84 matches and lost just 28 while picking up seven titles.
With this momentum, Linda has started cruising up further in 2023.
The Czech reached her maiden WTA career final in Adelaide – as a qualifier – after beating the big guns like Daria Kasatkina, Victoria Azarenka, and Ons Jabeur. She later reached the quarterfinal in Lyon and, most recently, the third round in Indian Wells.

Kvitova, Coming off a Good Run
World No. 12, 15th-seeded Czech Petra Kvitova arrived in Miami on the heels of a decent spell in Palm Springs. She was a quarterfinalist in the BNP Paribas Open, dismissing Elizabeth Mandlik, Jelena Ostapenko, and Jessica Pegula en route.
That was her best run of the season, preceded by a third-round stint in Dubai and a quarterfinal feat in Adelaide.
The 33-year-old is now 11-5 in 2023. In Miami, she has reached the quarterfinal thrice – including last season.
Although some may argue that Kvitova is slowly moving past her prime, you cannot underestimate the two-time Wimbledon champion at any stage. With a rich experience spanning three decades and 40 career finals, Petra is a formidable opponent.
Kvitova v Noskova Prediction and Tip
This match can go either way, but Noskova will fancy her chances. Kvitova has seen her fair share of losses to the rising stars on tour, and Linda is no different. Expect an entertaining affair with many games in the offing.
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.
