It did not work in the first match to defeat Boulter (6-4, 7-5). Labor victory has been achieved. The rival worked well on his serve. Elina added at the right moments. The potential was noticeable, got a good game practice, given that this year played only the second match.
Against Davis, it will be easier at the reception, yet the American tennis player is not distinguished by a powerful and reliable game on her pitch.
In the 2020 season, before the start in Melbourne, Lauren Davis managed to play in two pre-helmet tournaments in Auckland and Hobart. I was able to reach the quarter-finals in Hobart, but the level of rivals was not too high. In the quarterfinal, through (-7) in the handicap, she lost to Zhang Shuai.
In the Australian Open in the first round, Davis was not the most rated opponent Fernandez. A logical victory was recorded (6-4, 6-2). Davis felt comfortable, could easily return to the game at the reception. Twice gave her pitch. In the second round, you will have to play against an uncomfortable opponent, who has already lost four times in her career.
Statistics and personal meetings
