In St. Petersburg on February 13, one of the favorites of the Kvitova tournament starts the game against Alison Van Uytvanck from the second round.

Alison Van Uytvanck
Van Uytvanck tries to play in a variety of ways, but still she is more confident in acting in an attacking manner, when she dictates her conditions on the court and constantly aggravates. It should be noted that the Belgian has a powerful serve in her arsenal and is not afraid to run out to the net after the first ball, because she is able to handle the most difficult balls. The tennis player is able to aggravate both from forehand and backhand (but more stable breaks on the right). When Alison is in optimal shape, she is able to produce results on all types of coatings.
Alison Van Uytvanck successfully started in St. Petersburg with a victory over Mladenovich (6-4, 6-1). Thus, the Belgian tennis player repeated last year’s result and defended rating points. Then, in 2019, in the second round, Alison lost to Aryna Sabalenka (1-6, 4-6).
In the game against Mladenovic, as we expected in her prediction, the representative of Belgium played more reliably, made fewer unforced errors. Perhaps due to such a game there will be chances to impose a fight on Petra Kvitova.
In recent years, Kvitova has radically reorganized her game. If before, the Petra went to court without any plan for a duel, but simply tried to realize all her attacking potential, now she makes combinations and provokes her opponents to make mistakes. Kvitova also lost a lot of extra pounds and thanks to this significantly improved movement on the court. Petra still boasts one of the best innings on the WTA tour. Do not forget about the crazy force forehand, due to which it not only aggravates, but also confidently conducts rallies.
The third time in his career comes to St. Petersburg, Peter Kvitova. In 2018, she took the title in the tournament, and last season in the quarterfinal she lost to Donna Vekic. It should be amended that last year the tournament was played immediately after the Australian Open, Petra then came to Russia after a lost final against the backdrop of great fatigue.
This time Kvitova, after reaching the quarter-finals of the Australian Open, had a lot of time to prepare for the start in St. Petersburg, the Czech team did not play in the Federation Cup.

Van Uytvanck confidently looked in match against Mladenovic. But now we have to fight with the motivated Kvitova, who has repeatedly stated that she came to St. Petersburg for the title. In addition, Alison has nothing in her game that could surprise Peter, but on the contrary is inferior to her in many game aspects.
Alison Van Uytvanck successfully performs in the halls over his career, but the tennis player does not demonstrate successful results against rivals from the top 10. Yet her game itself is pretty straightforward. Kvitova is able to offer powerful and attacking tennis, she will knock out Alison from the reception.
Last year, here in St. Petersburg, Van Uytvanck was unable to oppose Aryna Sabalenka, who acts in a similar manner (she lost after -7 games in the market). We expect that Kvitova will not experience serious problems in the game with the representative of Belgium.
