Taiwan Open, Taipei City R1 Prediction
?? (4) Timea Babos vs ?? Arina Rodionova
I’m going to side with Babos here. I think Babos should win this match pretty comfortably. Babos has the type of big game that is well suited to the indoor hard courts in Taipei City. I think Babos will have received a huge boost of confidence from her doubles performance at the Australian Open where she won the title alongside Mladenovic and also made the doubles final. It is common for good doubles results to have a positive influence in singles, especially for a player like Babos who has great potential. Rodionova does not really have any weapons to trouble Babos, she will completely be reliant on Babos having a poor day in order to be competitive here.
