Last season, Kudermetova managed to win her debut WTA tournament. Even on courage, the tennis player repeatedly performed in the final stages, where she scored points and ended up in the top 50. But the problem is that Veronica is not yet ready to compete at a high level, since the Russian woman has serious difficulties in absolutely every match, even when playing with much weaker rival. Veronika does not know how to control her emotions and if a critical moment arrives, then she immediately forgets about the game plan and starts trying to score for a kick with each hit, and this in most cases leads to defeat.
Before starting in St. Petersburg, Veronika Kudermetova has a series of four defeats. The tennis player, along with the Russian national team, returned from Romania, where both of her fights lost to the not-rated rivals Bogdan (3-6, 7-6, 1-6) and Christian (5-7, 3-6).
Before these matches at the Australian Open, Kudermetova had a first-round loss against Sara Sorribes Tormo (6-2, 1-6, 1-6). There is no self-confidence, it is not possible to even play the entire match. Obviously, the Russian tennis player is not in the best shape right now, as we noted in our forecasts for her matches.
What Putinintsev likes is his fighting character. After all, the Kazakh woman always tries to squeeze the maximum out of herself, even in those matches when she does not succeed on the court. It should be noted that Yulia plays extremely unpredictably, since she can, at the most unexpected moment, perform a shortened strike filigree. Maybe the whole game can act aggressively, and then suddenly in the course of the meeting it will be rebuilt and go on to defensive activity.
