First round match of the Sydney WTA, which faces Ahn and Bertens.
The Dutch Kiki Bertens suffered a lot last year on hard court, where he could only win 5 of the 18 games he played on this surface and the start of this season could not be worse, as he was eliminated by a convincing 6-1.6.2 before Konjuh.
By cons, the start of the year of Ahn is still very good and the sensations that have left in the previous phase of Sydney even better. The student at Stanford University has left out of the final table 3 veterans with a lot of trade and a lot of tennis, such as Carla Suarez, Johanna Larsson and Monica Puig in 3 authentic rehearsals, in which she has not given any set or been close to give it up.
Seeing the level of Ahn in the previous against level players and the level that gave Bertens both last week, and last season on hard court, I think the American will win this morning at least two games more than the Dutch. I think the fee has enough value to enter with a Stake 3.
Prediction today: Asian handicap Kristie Ahn -1,5 games
