Brisbane International, QF Prediction
?? Aliaksandra Sasnovich vs. ?? Donna Vekic
Aliaksandra Sasnovich and Donna Vekic are two players on the rise, both will be keen to make a big statement by reaching the semi-finals in Brisbane. I expect a close match between two ladies playing with real confidence and intent at the moment. I will give the slight edge to Aliaksandra Sasnovich for a few reasons.
Sasnovich was particularly impressive in the previous round in the way that she took down the top seeded Elina Svitolina. Sasnovich’s backhand is in devastating form and I personally rate her above Vekic who was honestly very lucky to get through the previous round. Sasnovich is more consistent and more versatile and loves playing in Brisbane after reaching the final there last year.
