Daria Kasatkina vs. Jasmine Paolini, Prague R1 Prediction

J&T Banka Prague Open, R1 Prediction
?? (3/wc) Daria Kasatkina vs. ?? (LL) Jasmine Paolini

I expect Kasatkina to win this match quite comfortably. Paolini is solid, a typical clay court grinder, unfortunately for her that type of game is unlikely to trouble Kasatkina. The Russian is more experienced and does everything better than the Italian. Kasatkina also has more firepower. Kasatkina may take a while to get going in her first match of the event but ultimately she will be too strong for the lucky-loser.

Prediction: Daria Kasatkina to defeat Jasmine Paolini in 2 sets
