Tennis Prediction of the Day Patricia Tig vs Xiaodi You
Patricia Tig has become accustomed to long matches, because she has trouble closing the match in the minimum set.
It is a talented tennis player, but is often left overwhelmed with nerves and emotions, as was the case with Wang.
You have very good mobility, I think Patricia will run a lot in tomorrow’s match.
I expect Patricia Tig to make mistakes, especially at work and to offer many chances of break, so I recommend a handicap for sets in favor of the Chinese.
Prediction Today: Xiaodi You +1.5 sets
