Miami Open, ????? R1 Prediction
?? Lesia Tsurenko vs. ?? (wc) Ajla Tomljanovic
I’m going to side with Tsurenko here. Tsurenko is usually fairly tough to get passed on a hard court like the one in Miami. I expect Tsurenko to be in better shape than she was in Indian Wells where I expected her to struggle after little rest between her title run in Acapulco. Tsurenko has a very consistent baseline game with a backhand that can match that of Tomljanovic. I haven’t seen much to suggest that Tomljanovic is playing well enough to beat such a consistent opponent, Tsurenko is very good at exposes weaknesses, there are many weaknesses in the Tomljanovic game to be exposed.
