Despite the fact that in total girls made for two breaks 13 – the calling card of women’s tennis.
The coefficients and forecast
The bookies give the Chinese very little chance to win in this confrontation, putting on her ratio of 3.3, at Sobolenko – 1.4. Although Zheng Saisai at this tournament was very strong rivals, indicating the excellent current form at the first major competition of the US Open series.
It is clear that, to a greater extent, the final result of the match will depend on Arina as she leads the game, while the Chinese profess defensive tennis. But the Belarusian this season is not stable, which may allow the competitor not just to battle and vie for the title.
I think we can expect the uncompromising and dramatic match, in which to determine the winner will need the maximum number of sets.
