Bertens will not be easy this season. After all, she has to defend a huge number of rating points, and this is not an easy task, especially considering the fact that this will need to be done at prestigious tournaments. And Kiki has no such experience yet. It is necessary to pay attention to the fact that the representative of the Netherlands cannot boast of persistent nerves and often sags under pressure. Given all these facts, there is great doubt that she will finish this year in the top 10.
In a cozy room in The Hague, the hostesses used a dirt cover, on which team leader Kiki Bertens traditionally feels confident. However, the starting match against Sosnovich showed that Kiki did not immediately manage to catch his game, to feel the ball rebound. Only to the second set did Bertens really play out and did not leave Alexandra a chance (6-7, 6-2, 6-1).
In the game against Sabalenka, Bertens will not have an advantage in the strength of blows and physical power. Moreover, Aryna is capable of playing in her favorite aggressive manner at the reception of Kiki’s second serve. Kiki has no consistently high numbers on the accuracy of hitting the first ball.
It’s hard to expect anything specific from Sabalenka, because she can go out and just ask her own pressure, or she can beat out on the meter and lose much weaker than her opponent. It is for this reason that the Belarusian can not prove himself in large tournaments, where you need to play at the same level for a half to two weeks. Aryna is training with Tursunov, who is trying to get her ward to hold the ball at least a little and think. But while there are no successes in this direction.
Successfully adapted to the local hall in The Hague and to the cover of Aryna Sabalenka. The opponent had no chances in the first match of Rus; the Belarusian tennis player completely controlled the course of the match (6-2, 6-3).
In the first match, Sabalenka’s advantage in the class, in movement, in the reliability of the game on his pitch was noticeable. It is not necessary to expect that it will also be easy to feel in the match against Bertens, but on the whole, Sabalenka left a pleasant impression on the first match.
