For Mihaela Buzarnescu a new stage of this season begins, with the start of the Asian hard season. This week he will participate in the tournament in Hiroshima, Japan, where he will meet in the first round the Bulgarian player, Viktoriya Tomova.
▪️Romanca, aged 31, is currently ranked 129th in the WTA rankings, dropping sharply in the WTA rankings due to a total disastrous season on the circuit.
▪️After the injury suffered in San Jose in the previous season, Mihaela’s game did not convince at all, suffering many defeats, almost all coming from the first round of tournaments.
▪️He also failed to get any notable results during the US tournaments, being defeated in the opening round of the US Open by the German Andrea Petkovic, in minimum sets.
▪️The player from Bulgaria, who reached the age of 24, is currently ranked 175 WTA, the highest career position being 126, occupied in 2018.
▪️This season he alternated the ITF level tournaments with the WTA circuit, and the best result was obtained in the ITF tournament in France in July, on the slag, where he managed to win the competition.
▪️In this tournament he has already won 2 matches in qualifications, to secure a place on the main competition table.

The two players have met twice so far, both meetings being won by Mihaela Buzarnescu in minimum sets, the last one taking place in 2017.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Mihaela Buzarnescu vs Viktoriya Tomova
I expect Mihaela Buzarnescu to start the new series of Asian tournaments more confident, after a bad American season, and against Viktoriya Tomova starts with the first chance, and the fact that there are not many top players at the start of the competition, is a good opportunity for the Romanian player to get a remarkable first result this season. Therefore, I bet on a solid victory of romance, without too many problems, the difference of experience being a significant one.
