18-year-old Ukrainian tennis player Diane Yastremsky in the third round of the Australian Open will play against 37-year-old American Serena Williams.
Undoubtedly, this game – the game of life for Ukrainian women and this game is starting rounds of the tournament “Grand slam” for American women. The bookies do not give a chance Yastremsky, but everything is so simple in this confrontation?
Ukrainka in this tournament has already passed the experienced Samantha Stosur and Carla Suarez Navarro, and did so in her usual attacking style. This, perhaps, is the trump card Ukrainka. She tries to play the active, powerful punches with both hands and moves quickly on the court.
For Serena this is inconvenient. In my 37 years 23-time winner of the “Hats” is not so mobile as before and does not like to play defense. In addition, this Australian Open has shown that a powerful and feed the American is not so stable, so as not to leave chances to competitors.
Ukrainian woman may well compete with Serena in the strikes back of the line and force the opponent to run. Also Yastremsky has at its disposal receiving feed through to the if Williams Jr. will not go to the first submission that the episodes happened in the matches in previous rounds.
In General, being the clear favorite of the game against Yastremsky Serena got from the bookies, rather, for past services. We don’t quite share.
It is clear that it would not be surprising if an American will step on, but controversial is what will make it a little effort.
Our prediction: over 18,5 games for odds of 1.80.
