After winning the Australian Open, Kenin stumbled a bit, as she had already lost three games in a row. The most important thing is that it looks extremely inexpressive on the court and makes many unusual mistakes for itself. Will she be able to interrupt an unsuccessful series?

Kenin is distinguished by the ability to completely rebuild his game during the meeting. But she herself is unable to do this and is completely dependent on her father, who helps her in every way. Even in the Australian Open, it was he who with gestures helped Sofia in the second set to stylistically change the game, and then, as a result, gain a win.
The American herself stands out for her tenacity on the court and this is not always good. For example, in a recent match against Rybakina, Kenin decided to take the second serve in the court, Elena understood this very well and varied the direction of the ball. As a result, Kenin took the second serve in the net and out, but did not think of not entering the court.
It is hard now for Sofia Kenin. The tennis player herself admitted that she was not ready for such increased attention after success in Melbourne.
As a result, Sofia won only one match for the last four matches. Last week in Doha, there was a defeat from Dayana Yastremska (3-6, 6-7). There are also doubts in terms of motivation. Nevertheless, the tournament in Lyon is not the most prestigious; Sofia does not have much experience in playing in European halls. Ahead are major tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami.
Diatchenko’s potential is huge, but she is already under 30 and the best times are behind. Vitalia stands out precisely for its attacking potential. The tennis player was not able to fully realize herself due to constant health problems, because only the Russian woman begins to add, so immediately something new comes out.
But the main problem of Diatchenko is that she is not able to maintain concentration throughout the meeting and only in the last year she suffered many defeats when she dominated the court, and then she began to relax and miss the win.
Russian woman Vitalia Diatchenko in the 2020 season in the main draw of the WTA tournaments does not have a single victory on his account. However, it is worth noting that Vitalia is always ready for unexpected surprises and victories. In 2018, Diatchenko was remembered for her victories at Wimbledon over Sharapova and Kenin.
This year Vitalia Diatchenko tried her hand three times in the main draw of the WTA tournaments. Without a fight with the court, she didn’t leave; she took sets in matches against Saccari and Collins. The tennis player feels great in the halls, having played 192 matches in her career, of which 140 were wins.
