Anisimova is just starting her professional career. But this was not an obstacle for the tennis player to play Roland Garros in the semifinals last season and win the WTA tournament. Thanks to such successes, Amanda ended up in the top 50.
It is worth noting how strange it may sound, but Anisimova is much more confident in the hard ground, despite the fact that she graduated from the American tennis school, where she is taught to play only on hard. Amanda acts on the court boldly and only with the first number, I try to only attack. But the American knows the measure and does not abuse kicks.
After the successful first tournament of the season in Auckland with access to the semifinals, there was a decline in the game of Amanda Anisimova. In Melbourne and Dubai, the young tennis player lost in the role of favorite bookmakers Zarina Diyas (3-6, 6-4, 3-6) and Barbora Strycova (6-7, 6-2, 4-6).
At the current tournament in Doha, they managed to overcome problems and gain two convincing wins over Ekaterina Alexandrova (6-3, 7-6) and Elina Svitolina (6-3, 6-3). And noticeably added to the reliability of supply Amanda in the second match, which is important for her.
About a year ago, Kuznetsova was written off. And there were reasons for this because the Russian woman suffered a serious injury and lay on the operating table, and at her age, this often leads to the end of her career.
It’s just that nothing like happened, as Svetlana returned only more motivated and surprised everyone when she played in the Master’s finals. Of course, Kuznetsova is not able to perform stably at a distance, but when she is collected and motivated, she is still able to give battle to any opponent.
It is hard to give prediction and expect something from Svetlana Kuznetsova. An experienced Russian woman from the very start of the season alternates excellent matches with games, where not everything turns out on the court.
In Doha, Kuznetsova for the first time this season won two matches in one tournament. At the same time, each of the rivals gave four games. And if in the first round against Cagla Buyukakcay (6-2, 6-2) the final score on the scoreboard did not cause much surprise, then the win with the same score over Iga Swiatek is impressive.
True, it’s worth making an amendment that the Polish tennis player looked very unconvincing on her serve (only 49% of hits with the first ball).
