Bet and win
Carla Suarez Navarro
Failed January helmets at the start of the season Carla Suarez-Navarro. In Brisbane, in the first round, she lost to Kasatkina (3-6, 6-3, 2-6). In Adelaide, in the first qualification match, there was a defeat from Rodionova (6-4, 4-6. 4-6).
Carla had a similar situation before starting at the Australian Open in 2018. They also did not win a single match in pre-helmet tournaments, and in Melbourne, she managed to reach the quarter-finals. The Spanish tennis player is able to tune in to Grand Slam tournaments and rarely leaves without a fight.
It’s another matter that after the US Open, Carla didn’t have game practice and it’s hard to judge whether she managed to more or less gain a game form before starting in Melbourne.
The start of the season for Arina Sabalenka was not the most successful. In Shenzhen, unexpectedly in the second round, lost to Kristina Plishkova (4-6, 4-6). However, already in Adelaide, Arina was able to reach the semifinals, where she lost to Yastremskaya (4-6, 6-7).
For matches in Adelaide, we note that it was not possible to work smoothly and stably in each of the matches. So, in relation to handicap in (-6) games in three victorious matches, this indicator did not break through Sobolenko. The feed periodically failed, it was necessary to work through the reception.
The last two games against Carla Suarez-Navarro turned out to be difficult for Arina, although they managed to win in 2018 in Wuhan (7-6, 2-6, 6-2) and in 2019 in San Jose (3-6, 6- 2, 6-4).
Statistics and personal meetings
