Puskkarevsky vs Anna Bogoslavets by Tennisguy
This is a round of 16 match from the Tel Aviv 3 ITF (hard) between Alona Puskkarevsky from Israel and Anna Bogoslavets from Ukraine.
I am going to go with Puskkarevsky in this one even if she is considered to be the underdog. I guess the main reason for that is because Bogoslavets has played more matches this year compared to her opponent. For me though at this level i think it's more about momentum and the way they played in their last matches rather than the rankings. Puskkarevskyhas played quite well last week at the Tel Aviv ITF where she lost to eventual champion Stefkova in a very disputed match 4-6, 6-1, 7-5. Bogoslavets on the other hand played Orlova again after loosing to her last week at the Tel Aviv ITF and managed to win by retirement of her opponent who could not continue anymore and the match ended at 1-6, 7-6(6), 4-2. I really think that Bogoslavets is very lucky to be in this round and I don't think she is in any good form.
I am going to go with the home crowd favorite here Puskkarevsky and I am pretty confident that she has a real chance to get the win today.
