Danielle Lao vs Karatacheva by Tennisguy
This is a first round match from the Midland ITF tournament between Danielle Lao from USA and Sesil Karatantcheva from Bulgaria.
These two players have never face each other in a h2h match before.
I am going with Lao in this one even though she is considered the underdog in this one. I guess she convinced me by playing very well in the qualif. stages of this tournament. In the qualif. rounds she defeated Nadja Gilchrist 6-1, 6-3, Lena Litvak 6-1, 6-2 and Oleksandra Korashvili 6-4, 6-1. I believe she is in a very good form and even though Karatacheva is the more experienced player I think she will have a very good chance of winning today.
Karatantcheva hasn't played a match since the second round of the qualif. rounds at the Australian Open where she lost to Panova. I don't necessarily think that she will treat this tournament very seriously and compared to her opponent who is very hungry for any type of god results I believe that she is participating here mostly to practice for the upcoming bigger events.
In my opinion I think backing Lao here seems like a good idea especially considering how well she played in the qualif. stages and at these odds it's really worth it.
