Australian Open 🇦🇺 R1 Prediction
(29) 🇨🇿 Lucie Safarova vs 🇦🇺 Ajla Tomljanovic
I think Safarova will again be too strong for Tomljanovic. Safarova will be too consistent and clinical for the Aussie. Safarova’s serve and groundstrokes are far more reliable than Tomljanovic’s. Safarova was playing at a very high level in her loss to Kerber in Sydney, hitting the ball very cleanly from the baseline. I think this is a good match-up for Safarova, she is good at absorbing and redirecting pace and will not really be threatened by the game of Tomljanovic. Expect Safarova to win this pretty comfortably.
