When Pavlyuchenkova goes motivated to the court and is confident in herself, then she can beat any opponent. After all, being in optimal shape, the Russian woman is even able to act viscously and in such a way to win points. But Anastasia feels more comfortable when she dominates the court and constantly aggravates.
In addition, Pavlyuchenkova has everything necessary for this in her arsenal, starting with cannon feed and ending with powerful blows from forehand and backhand.
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova took a long pause after the successful Australian Open. Only last week in Dubai, a Russian woman appeared on the court.
She was able to win in the Dubai Pavlyuchenkova win over Bencic (1-6, 6-1, 6-1). However, in the second-round game, there was a defeat from Kontaveit (6-7, 5-7). Note that the recession game did not follow Pavlyuchenkova, judging by the matches in Dubai.
Putintseva is definitely one of the most diverse tennis players on the tour. After all, she can spend one set in an aggressive manner, constantly trying to aggravate and run out to the net. But only she doesn’t succeed in the attack, then the Kazakh woman in the second set can focus exclusively on defense. Yulia has in her arsenal a huge number of strokes, due to which she is able to slow down the pace and rhythm of her rivals. Putintseva also stands out for her incredible footwork and is able to reach even the deadliest balls.
This is not the first season that Yulia Putintseva has unsuccessfully performed at a bunch of tournaments in Dubai and Doha. Her last winning match here dates back to 2017 when at the removal of her opponent (Timea Bacsinszky) there was one lap in Doha.
Last week, a Kazakhstani tennis player did not perform in Dubai. The rating did not allow them to get directly into the main grid there, and the qualifications, obviously, did not want to play. The Kazakhstani tennis player spent the last match in St. Petersburg on February 11, losing to Kudermetova (6-7, 6-1, 7-5).
