Davis is one of the most underrated tennis players in the top 100. After all, she is always in the shade and only occasionally shoots in small tournaments. But over the course of her career, the American has beaten serious rivals at major tournaments more than once, but all because of an underestimation factor. In fact, Lauren is a talented player and if not for her health problems, she could already achieve a lot in her career. Davis stands out for her real speed on the court and is one of the fastest on the WTA tour. But the American is fixated not only on defense, as she confidently aggravates with both hands and compensates for the lack of strength with accuracy.
Davis was experiencing the cancellation of matches, at least one. It was at the start, when the lot brought her to Fernandez, but in the end everything changed. Lauren fought with Podoroska, to whom she gave only three games in two sets. It was some kind of sparring, not a full fight.
Rus is confidently in the top 100, but she is gaining points at ITF tournaments, where she uses trivial competition. No matter how strange it may sound, but at 29, the representative of the Netherlands has practically no experience in performing at a high level. In her game, Arantxa focuses on the attack, as it stands out with a killer blow from the forehand and a stable backhand. Even in her arsenal, the player has a powerful serve and after the first ball goes to the net (but only in cases where there is such an opportunity, and not because of hopelessness). But the problem is that Rus can’t do anything else and just need to hold the ball in court, she does it with difficulty.
Will Rus even play at least one match in Monterrey? At first, the fight with Bouzkova was canceled, although everyone was already sending Arantxa home. Then the Dutchwoman Russian Flink fell out, but after seven games her body asked to rest. So the confrontation with Davis could be the first for Rus in this tournament, if you don’t take into account the unsuccessful meetings before that.
Davis vs Rus Predictions
Davis is more than a clear favorite, as the American will make Arantxa move a lot on the court, and she can’t stand it. In addition, Rus will not be able to avoid a sticky game, and this will lead to a huge number of unforced errors. We recommend betting on Lauren Davis to win.
