ASB Classic, Auckland R1
?? Nao Hibino vs ?? Su-Wei Hsieh
I expect this to be a close match. Both Hibino and Hsieh play their best tennis on a hard court, both are solid but lack serious weapons. I’m going to give the slight edge to Hibino. I think Hibino is the better athlete at this stage of their respective careers and is the slightly more consistent player. Hibino has more upside to her game and I think she will be too solid for Hsieh on this occasion.
