Vinogradova vs Barbieri by Tennisguy
This is a match from the first round of the Ankara ITF tournament between Polina Vinogradova from Russian and Gioia Barbieri from Italy.
Vinogradova is ranked 291 and is 4-2 in indoor this year. On the other side Barbieri is ranked 206 and has a 10-7 record on hard this year. They have never played each other so far.
I believe that Barbieri is going to manage to win this match because not only is she more experienced but she has had the better results this year. For the level she plays at she managed some good wins in the past few months against players like Putintseva, Van Uytvanck, Hogenkamp, Konta, Krejcikova, and all these where wins in indoor. I believe she has the quality to actually manage an easy win today and the odds really look great in my opinion.
Vinogradova to be honest has had very few good results this year and she actually hasn't played a single's match in more that a month so I don't see her as being the favorite here as the odds might suggest.
For me Barbieri is the favorite and these odds are just to good so this pick is really a no-brainer.
