Carla Suarez Navarro
Suarez Navarro is only 31 years old, but she has already stated that she wants to end her professional career. The reason is commonplace, as the tennis player is exhausted by the last permanent injuries and is no longer able to bear serious loads.
Despite this, Carla still has the best one-handed backhand on the WTA tour. Since she hits hard and variably, her punches are impossible to read. Previously, Suarez Navarro stood out for its speed, but now it has seriously slowed down in this aspect and this is one of the main reasons why the tennis player leaves.
The winner of the Doha tournament in 2016, Carla Suarez Navarro, successfully started this year with a win over Zhang Shuai (7-5, 6-0). The fight in the match was only in the first set. In the second installment, the Chinese tennis player practically did not resist.
Taking into account three qualification matches last week in Dubai, Carla got a good game practice, played out and is ready to continue to fight at one of the most successful tournaments for herself.
It only seems that Kvitova is gaining momentum and will continue to dominate the round, as soon as Petra is experiencing another recession. Petra has noticeably changed lately, she has thrown off a lot of extra pounds, has become more diverse to act in draws and no longer thoughtlessly thrashes the ball with all her might.
But she constantly has some difficulties, starting with personal ones, ending with health. Therefore, the Czech Republic spends too much time outside the tour, and given that Kvitova is dependent on playing practice, this is a serious problem.
After the quarterfinals in the Australian Open, Petra Kvitova performed only at the tournament in St. Petersburg. With great difficulty, Alison Van Uytvanck (7-6, 1-6, 6-2) was able to replay in the opening match. Peter did not go to the next game against Alexandrova due to illness. Also she missed the Czech tennis player and the tournament in Dubai last week.
The lack of gaming practice is traditionally not the best way to affect the game Kvitova. Moreover, the game ahead is not against the most convenient opponent. Tennis players won six times in personal meetings.
It is interesting that all three matches between Kvitova and Suarez Navarro in a series of tournaments in Doha and Dubai ended in a win for the Spanish tennis player.
