The national teams of Spain and Japan will play in the qualification of the Federation Cup. Sorribes and Osaka will be the first to enter the court on February 7. How will Naomi prove herself for the national team? – read in our prediction
Unstable performed at the start of the tennis season, Sara Sorribes. In the main tournament draw WTA was able to win only one victory, beating Australian Open with Veronika Kudermetova (2-6, 6-1, 6-1). At the same time, even in the lost matches, Sorribes did not leave without a fight. In Melbourne, she took a set in a game with Kontaveit (2-6, 6-4, 1-6).
Sara on the ground will play against Osaka. The home stands factor is also on her side. Last year in Madrid on the ground, Sarah took a set from a Japanese player (6-7, 6-3, 0-6).
Sorribes Tormo is doing everything possible to stay in the top 100. However, the Spaniard is constantly on the verge, because she scores points only in clay courts. Sarah often comes to hard, but often flies out of tournaments in the early stages. The reason is that from the very first games she gives the initiative to her rivals and just runs after the balls. Of course, the Spaniard slows down the rhythm and pace of the opponents, as she constantly shortens and cuts the ball, but so far this tactic has failed for Sara.
Osaka is one of the most attacking players on the tour. After all, she is trying to aggravate from absolutely any position. At the same time, Naomi refuses to think on the court, because in critical situations the Japanese acts even more aggressively and in most cases everything ends in defeat. As it was in the last match against Gauff, when Naomi did not receive powerful blows, but she did nothing to change her game, but simply continued to shell outs and hopes for luck.
In Australian Open, Naomi Osaka was unable to defend points for last year’s title, losing unexpectedly in the third round of Gauff (3-6, 4-6). In the WTA ranking, the Japanese player dropped to 10th place.
Last year, she did not play for the national team in the Federation Cup. A year earlier, she played two matches against the representatives of Great Britain, Comte (3-6, 3-6) and Watson (6-2, 6-3). Will she be ready to immediately adapt to the new conditions of the match?
Betting Tips Statistics
- In two personal meetings, Osaka defeated
- On a clay courts meeting in person, Sorribes took a set from Osaka
- Every 2 head to head play took place in a bitter struggle
It’s hard to expect anything concrete from Naomi, because she can go to court and shoot at the net, or she can declassify her opponent. But it should be noted that this will be her first game on the ground in many months. Sarah Sorribes feels rather well in matches on the ground. It is no coincidence that last year she took a set from Naomi and for two games played on equal terms in Madrid. Now it will take time for Osaka to find his game in unusual conditions. A coefficient above 2.00 per set from Sorribes looks like a promising option for betting in the match.
