Naomi Osaka vs. Mihaela Buzarnescu, Nottingham QF Prediction

?? Nature Valley Open, Nottingham QF Prediction
?? (3) Naomi Osaka vs. ?? (5) Mihaela Buzarnescu

I’m going to give the slight edge to Buzarnescu here. Whilst Osaka has the superior firepower and will win this match if she consistently finds her range, I suspect Buzarnescu’s awkward game will make Osaka uncomfortable enough to make this a very close match. Buzarnescu has been coming through some tight matches of late and has the more reliable, versatile game under pressure.

Prediction: Mihaela Buzarnescu to defeat Naomi Osaka in 3 sets
