Tamara Zidansek

The second tournament in Mexico is held by Tamara Zidansek. A week earlier in Acapulco, a Slovenian player had already reached the quarterfinals. In Monterrey, after defeating Azarenka (6-2, 6-2), Zidansek again has a chance of a quarter-final.

In the first round game with Azarenka, the representative of Slovenia made full use of the far from optimal form of Wiki. She played it very carefully, made fewer unforced errors.

A successful match against the former first racket of the world is able to give Zidansek confidence in her capabilities. After all, confrontation with Potapova is ahead. Two years ago, at the tournament in Moscow, both ladies shone, left in full-time confrontation in the semifinals. It was an absolutely equal match, but in the third set the Slovenia starred due to an injury. Now there is a great opportunity to take revenge for that defeat.

Anastasia Potapova

Anastasia Potapova, like Tamara Zidansek, was also in the quarter finals of Acapulco last week. Lost then the future winner of the tournament Fernandez (3-6, 5-7).

In the opening match in Monterrey, Potapova in the fight overcame the resistance of the Gatto-Monticone (6-4, 4-6, 6-4). Many questions were left by Anastasia’s game. The first serve didn’t fly (48% of the hit), a lot of mistakes (11 double mistakes). No need to talk now about the optimal form of the Russian woman. Zidansek knows how to use the mistakes of rivals in his favor.

Obviously, the first match in Monterrey left many questions about the quality of Potapova’s game. Zidansek from those tennis players who are able to play, first of all, reliably. Tamara will not risk without need. But Anastasia is just trying to play powerfully, take the initiative in her own hands in the draws. For such tennis you need a good game form. For the current segment of the season, this is not visible for the Russians.
