WTA NANCHANG

KUDRYATSEVA
WTA NANCHANG 

KUDRYATSEVA TO BEAT MARTINCOVA @ 6-5 

Kudryatseva leads the head to head 1-0 winning on hard court in straight sets. Neither player is playing great tennis on hard courts, Martincova played well last week on clay but this is totally different here and I think she may struggle with the transition which she has done on the past. Stats are very similar but I just give the edge to the more experienced player to find a way to win here. 

                                      HOLD SERVE               BREAK SERVE 

Kudryatseva                  61.9%                            37.4% 
Martincova                    64.1%                            39.9% 

HOZUMI TO BEAT HSIEH @ 2-1 (NAP) 

Hsieh leads the head to head 2-1 and on hard courts they are tied 1-1. Hozumi has been in excellent form on the lesser ITF circuit lately, reaching the final at Imzir, semi final at Stuttgart and semi final at Barcelona. 28-22 record on hard courts compared to Hsieh over the last 12 months and I just feel her greater confidence gained from her recent form gives her a great chance of causing an upset over a player that has struggled recently for victories. 

                                      HOLD SERVE                 BREAK SERVE 

Hozumi                         59.4%                               41.1% 
Hsieh                            58.7%                               41.6%

KULICHOVA TO BEAT SEVASTOVA @ 3-1 

Kulichkova won for us yesterday and was exceptionally strong on her return game and this is the part of Sevastova’s game that I feel she can exploit. If she can attack Sevastova’s serve then that can affect the rest of her game as she is a huge confidence player. 14-6 record on clay over last 12 months for Sevastova compared to Kulichkova’s 16-7 win loss record and the young Russian is a great price to cause an upset here. 

                                        HOLD SERVE                BREAK SERVE 

Kulichkova                      60.8%                              41.1% 
Sevastova                       67.2%                              41.4%
