Sara Errani - Anna Karolina Schmiedlova
What a tough match is going to be here!
A week ago nobody would guess 1.60 odds for Sara Errani, on clay, against A.K. Schmiedlova. It would seem huge.
But during this week the italian number 1 seed struggled for a few sets and only a physical issue and the withdrawal of the young brasilian Beatriz Haddad-Maia allowed her to pass the quarterfinal and follow the track to the last stage. She didn't look at all the merciless "lady Ferrer" that we were used to see in the past years on clay courts.
On the opposite, the young slovakian Schmiedlova had a exceptional week, the best of her carreer so far. I've been following her in the ITF tournaments for about one year and she's growing nicely, becoming a really good player. During this week she was ruthless with the first 3 opponents, in fact pretty good clay court players, beating Alison Van Uytvanck 6-3, 6-0, Paula Ormaechea 6-0, 6-2 and Veronica Cepede 6-3, 6-1. She made them look like much weaker players than they really are. AKS prevailed yesterday even over the no2 seed, a Irina Begu which is passing a excellent form, with the score of 6-3, 4-6, 6-2.
So, for the today final I expect the young slovakian to be a really tough opponent for the top seed. As a matter of fact I would see the odds viceversed, concerning the recent form of both players.
Betting conclusion: if Sara Errani will show us once more her well known fighting spirit she should keep up with Anna Schmiedlova and this is going to become a long match.
Let's go green!
