This season, Arantxa Rus already has a large number of matches played, which clearly indicates that the twelfth racket of the world is in good shape, as it was possible to play it. Of course, despite the excellent results at previous tournaments, you should not pay special attention to them, because at those Challengers there were opponents of a completely different level with whom it was easy to take early wins.
And since this tournament is much more prestigious and the best rackets of the world have gathered here, it is not so easy to prove yourself. Arantxa Rus can rejoice that they managed to overcome four stages already, but in the last meeting it was a very difficult game since the first set was completely failed, so I had to play a lot more carefully. Arantxa Rus still has difficulty adapting to the court, as previously, almost all matches played were played on a different surface.
Last season was at a very good level because it started in the second hundred of the international tennis rating, but in the end, it was possible to rise even to the 65th line. Fans hope that Nao Hibino will play even better this year so that successful results will be supported by the tournaments won. In the first two tournaments, it did not work to reach the finals, as in the first there was a relegation in the quarter-finals, and in the second it was already in the first stage.
But, this was due to the weak form at the beginning of the season, and now Nao Hibino is already showing the best level. There were already three wins in this tournament, and in these fights, only one set was lost. All matches this season were held on hard, so Nao Hibino already feels good coverage and will try to play in the fastest style. Nao Hibino has a very strong serve, as well as high speed, and one of the main young talents of tennis loves to constantly change the rhythm of the game.
