Bonaventure vs Ianchuk
This is a first round match from the Ankara ITF tournament(indoor) between Ysaline Bonaventure from Belgium and Elizaveta Ianchuk from Ukraine.
I am going to back Elizaveta Ianchuk in this one because even though she is the underdog I believe that she has played incredibly well this season and has managed very good results on all surfaces. I am saying this for the level she plays at and that is mostly ITF tournaments. She has a record of 42/12 on clay, 8/2 on hard and 5/1 in indoor. She had to play the qualif. rounds here and she defeated Lukas, Prenkovic and Ostapenko. The win against Ostapenko was a very good one in my opinion because she defeated a in form opponent that was managing very good results in this end of the season.
Bonaventure is also a young talented player but one of the main reasons why I don't think she will play well today is the fact that she hasn't played a match from 29-10-2014 and that is more than one a half months of absence and even at this level that is a very important factor. I think she might need more matches under her belt before she can start playing at her best.
I think that Ianchuk will be better prepared and with the good year she had so far I think that she is very motivated to finish the year in style so I am expecting her to get a win today.
