Australian Open ?? R4 Prediction
?? Petra Martic vs ?? Elise Mertens
I have to give the edge to Mertens here. I think this should be a good match-up for Mertens. I would say Mertens has more too her game, Mertens certainly has more weapons that can hurt Martic. Both players are fairly good defenders, both move well around the court, both have good first serves and a decent second serve. The difference is that Mertens has a greater ability to hit through the court whilst at the same time I think Mertens is quicker and the better mover around the court. Mertens is in great form right now and should be too good for Martic.
