A match from the first round of WTA Tokyo with a prize money worth more than 2$ milion. Peng is 15th right-hand player in WTA tour, she is coming here ready for this tournament after the lost from Flavia Penneta in the quarter-finale in US Open. She loves to play on hard, in this season 35/10. Peng is a baseline player, she is fast and has strong shoots. Her best weapon is mental power, she is calm and motivated before every point. Most of the points against weak servers wins on returs because her two-hand forhand is deep enough to take the opponent out of balance and without a chance to be into the point. From the other side Craybas is a veteran, the 37 years old american loves to play tennis and all this matches are making pleasure. She is 117th player in the world, it’s coming here with bad run from 4 tournament. All tournamets for her finished in the first round and I have to add that she is qualifier. Everything what she is doing for the tennis is a praise but she is in deep age of sport, the body balance is not at some level like good prepared top players and the shoots are not strong and deep to make problems on opponent serve. Peng has everything to make one easy win and for sure she wants to finish this match as soon as possible and IMO she can breaks at least three times and to make this pick to pass. I expect win in straight sets.
Good luck !
