Irina-Camelia Begu (1) vs Aliaksandra Sasnovich
Aliaksandra Sasnovich kept her amazing run, she lost the first set against Anna Karolina Schmiedlova but managed to turn the match to reach her first career final. This was already the 7th match Sasnovich played this week but still had energy left in the tank to make a comeback.
The key for Sasnovich success this week has been her aggressive return to serve allowing only 41.9% service hold from her opponents.
Irina-Camelia Begu will play her fifth career final, so far she only won 1 title but Begu was rated as underdog in the other three finals she lost.
Begu has a very strong serve and amazing groundstrokes, despite that, she struggles to perform at consistent level but this week she has been on fire. In semifinals Begu just crushed Alison Van Uytvanck 6 – 0 6 – 2.
Sasnovich major weapon as we mention is her ability to return to serve but this time she’ll face a great server who has been very solid this week. Begu is holding 90.2% service games this week and in this match Aliaksandra will struggle to create so many problems on return like in previous contests.
Begu shouldn’t miss this opportunity to win her second career title, she can make huge damage with her groundstrokes and with her powerful tennis won’t allow Sasnovich to play her aggressive game style.
Tennis Pick: Irina-Camelia Begu -3.0 (-109) Pinnacle
