Barbora Strycova vs. Lesia Tsurenko, Birmingham QF Prediction

?? Nature Valley Classic, Birmingham QF Prediction
?? Barbora Strycova vs. ?? Lesia Tsurenko

I’m going to side with Strycova here. The main reason for siding with Strycova is her superior record on grass. Grass is arguably Strycova’s best surface whilst Tsurenko has had limited success on grass. Strycova’s game is perfect for this surface, she possesses a deadly backhand slice and is very efficient at the net, this gives her the advantage in this match-up on this surface. Tsurenko doesn’t have many weapons to trouble Strycova. Nevertheless, this will probably be a close one.

Prediction: Barbora Strycova to defeat Lesia Tsurenko in 3 sets
