Francesca Segarelli vs Savinykh by Tennisguy
In this round of 16 matchup from the Merida 2 ITF we have Francesca Segarelli from the Dominican Rep. facing against Valeria Savinykh from Russia.
Savinykh is the clear favorite to win this one on paper but after seeing how well Segarelli played in this tournament I have to give her a try and back her in this encounter. I guess another reason for why I am thing this risk is the fact that Savinykh retired last week from a match from the Merida ITF and I question her physical conditions in this tournament. Though it might not have been the most serious injury I still think that the time between these events is to short to fully recover therefor I believe that she might still have problems.
Segarelli really impressed me with the last round win defeating the home crowd favorite Zacarias in 3 sets and what was more impressive was the fact that she came back from a set down. I think that she is a player to be reckoned with at this ITF level at least and if she plays well she might just manage to win this match given that I don't think Savinykh is fully recovered.
