Hopman Cup Prediction, Australia vs Belgium
?? Daria Gavrilova vs ?? Elise Mertens
I’m going to give the edge to Gavrilova in this encounter. I think these two have similar qualities, both are very quick and good defensive players but both can also step in and attack. Both have surprisingly strong first serves and both have good touch. I think Gavrilova has the slight edge on a quicker court because she is a slightly better mover and will have the added advantage of the home crowd support. Gavrilova is a little more clutch in big moments and is likely to be more clinical when it matters most in a tight match.
