A quarter of a little surprise finale will be on the women’s chart between Russian woman Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, victorious before American Sloane Stephens in the previous tour and the revelation of this edition of the women’s tournament, Danielle Collins. The match will take place around 5:30 pm and will be watched live on Eurosport programs.
The 27-year-old Russian player is currently ranked 44th in the WTA standings.
The previous season was a bad one for Anastasia, yet managed to win the tournament on the Strasbourg clay.
The current season started quite oscillating, with one win in Shenzen, in front of Ana Bogdan, while in Melbourne he managed very solid matches, passing through experienced players such as Kiki Bertens and Sloane Stephens.
The 27-year-old Sua player now holds the 35th place in the WTA standings of the simplest, best-of-career test.
He did the best in the circuit in the previous season in WTA Premiere tournaments from Indian Wells and Miami, where he reached the eighth and semifinals.
The fulminating rise continued in this tournament, managing the best career performance, eliminating Angelique Kerber, Caroline Garcia or Julia Goerges.
The match in the Australian Open tournament will be the first direct encounter between the two players, not having the chance to meet up to date in the circuit.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova vs Danielle Collins
Both players seem to be in full shape at the moment of the tournament, the confidence of both in their own game being extremely high, and a very spectacular match will be contested.
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is slightly upgraded in this meeting, with her top experience, Danielle Collins being at the best of her career in a Grand Slam tournament.
I think Danielle Collins will continue the excellent form of the previous games, the clear victory against Angelique Kerber being a brilliant one, which has raised her morale and the Russian Pavlyuchenkova will have a solid performance.
