American tennis player played better in January tournaments and is a favorite among bookmakers. Brady started the season with five straight wins. But only the time had come to meet serious rivals, when the problems immediately began.

Brady is changing for the better. Over the past year, she threw off a lot of extra pounds, thanks to this she became more mobile on the court and hardy. If before the tennis player tried to decide the fate of the rallies in one or two hits, now she is not afraid to conduct protracted rallies of rallies. The main weapon of the American is the feed, which she is able to count on in the most critical moments. If we talk about weaknesses, then we definitely need to highlight the terrible game on the ground and not the ability to concentrate on each match.
Jennifer Brady successfully started in the 2020 season. At the pre-helmet tournament in Brisbane, qualification reached the quarter-finals. Following on to Australian Open was unlucky with the toss of Jennifer. In the first round I had to play against Simone Halep. Jennifer had a good first set, she had every chance of success, but Simone’s experience affected, and the US representative lost (6-7, 1-6).
For matches in Australia, we note Brady’s confident play on his pitch, the ability to keep a high pace when exchanging blows. This is not the first year the tennis player has shown good results in the first part of the season. So, in 2019, in February, she went from qualification to the third round at a tournament in Dubai.
Kuznetsova only recently returned after a serious injury that nearly cut her professional career. Despite all the difficulties, the representative of Russia is in the top 50 best and when she is in optimal shape, she is able to compete at the highest level. At the moment, Svetlana is extremely unstable, because at first she competes and defeats the top rival, and then she manages to lose to the outsider without a chance. And it is unlikely that anything will change, since the tennis player is 34 years old, and her body is exhausted by constant injuries.
The start of the season performed by Svetlana Kuznetsova was mixed. At the Australian Open, she defeated Vondroushova in the first round (6-2, 4-6, 6-4). However, Georgie was not able to impose the struggle afterwards (3-6, 1-6). It is not easy to give matches to a Russian woman against attacking tennis players on quick surfaces.
In St. Petersburg, Kuznetsova performed only once. In 2017, she won one match against Gavrilova (6-1, 6-3), but then lost to Putintseva (3-6, 7-6, 5-7).
Betting Tips Statistics
- Tennis players will play among themselves for the first time.
- In the 2020 season, Brady held seven matches in which she won five victories.
- Kuznetsova in 2020, of the three matches played, she won only once.
Svetlana Kuznetsova is always ready to surprise with unexpected results and victories. Nevertheless, the tennis player has vast experience, the ability to play tactically competently and correctly. However, the level of the game that the Russian woman showed at the January tournaments is much lower than that of Brady. Plus, on quick coverage, the American will have an advantage when playing on her pitch.
Kuznetsova will try to at least something to counter the attacking potential of Brady. But if on the ground a Russian woman connected her entire arsenal of various strokes, then on hard this can not be done.
Our prediction is Brady’s victory
