ASB Classic, Auckland R1
?? Veronica Cepede Royg vs ?? Lara Arruabarrena
This should be a really close match, there is little to separate these two. I’m going to give the edge to Arruabarrena, I feel like she is the slightly better player. I think the Spaniard has a more versatile game and is better suited to playing on a hard court. One of the key differences is Arruebarrena’s ability to move up the court and her willingness to be more aggressive and hit flatter on a hard court. This should be a long match, both are happy to play extended rallies, most likely a lengthy 3 set match.
