DARIA KASATKINA vs ANNA KALINSKAYA
Fair play to Anna Kalinskaya for making it into the 3rd round, but shame on Elise Mertens for not beating the 23-year-old!
With all due respect, the player from Belgium led the third set 5/2 before going AWOL. After trading at 1.02 on the betting exchanges, Mertens folded tamely. In fact, Kalinskaya was able to save two match points on her way to victory.
In her opening match, Anna made it past Barbora Krejcikova 6/3 6/4. On paper, beating a player who won back-to-back tournaments is strong form. However, Krejcikova was another player who came up short, and she might have been feeling those recent tournaments.
Kalinskaya is now 26/20 on the year, and she comes into this match with her confidence intact. Nevertheless, while she showed the right attitude, her opponents failed! Ultimately, today’s challenge against a player who leads the head-to-head 3-0 will be bigger.
For the record, Daria Kasatkina beat her opponent at this year’s WTA$250 tournament in Melbourne. The other two meetings took place in Moscow and ended in straight sets.
Meanwhile, Kasatkina won her opening match against Lin Zhu by an easy 6/1 6/2. As it stands, the 25-year-old is ranked at number 10, albeit she’s in seventh place for the WTA finals. Suffice it to say, more points today will take Dasha a step closer to the big one!
In summary, we expect Kalinskaya is going to feel yesterday’s match. Previous head to heads are another factor, and Kasatkina is ranked substantially higher than her opponent!
This should be straightforward, with the main danger being that Kalinskaya as made a habit of retiring!
