Giorgi fell a lot in the last two seasons. Little Italian player, measuring only 1.68 m, is now in the 100th place. He played well in 2017 only on the grass, where he had a score of 8-3 and reached the quarterfinals in Birmingham (GBR). He finished his early season at the US Open.
He started 2018 as he finished 2017 with a defeat of 4-6, 2-6 in the first round at Shenzhen (CHI). Ranking does not help Camila so much, so she had to play the qualifiers here. He passed by Tjadramulia (AUS), score 7-5, 6-2, by Anyama (JPN), score 6-2, 7-6, and by Witthoeft (GER), score 6-4, 6-1. Then it seems to have improved better, 6-3, 6-0 with Stephens (USA) and 7-6, 6-2 with Kvitova (CZE).
Radwanska ended the 2017 season 28th after a year in which she won no trophy and her game was very bad. Even though he started the previous season with the Sydney final, he was noticed only through an “optimal” at Wimbledon.
He started hesitantly in Auckland, and Agnieszka did not manage to play the game in any way, ending in losing to the quarter-finals in front of an opponent outside the top 100, Vickery (USA), 2-6, 2-6. Even after this disappointment, Radwanska played a solid game in the first two matches in Sydney – 6-3, 7-5 against Konta (GBR) and 7-6, 6-0 with Bellis (USA).
Somehow, Agnieszka manages to play well when it’s no longer a favorite. Like Kerber, the Polish is in the shape of a comeback, and as spectators, it can only be enjoyed. H2H is 1-1, with Giorgi winning the single hardcore match in 2015. Tiny as it is, the Italian can be a real challenge for a defensive player like Radwanska. Agnieszka has been in both parties so far in danger of losing at least one set, despite the fact that her game has shown more than decent. Tomorrow morning, I think Giorgi will get a set.
Prediction Today: Giorgi – Radwanska: Giorgi + 1.5 sets
