Su-Wei Hsieh vs Eguchi by Tennisguy
This is a round of 16 match from the Kuala Lumpur WTA tournament between Su-Wei Hsieh from Hsieh and Misa Eguchi from Japan.
These players have met 1 times and the score between them is tied. The first meeting took place in 2011 at the Taipei ITF and it was won by Hsieh 7-6, 6-4. The seond one took place in 2014 at the Seoul ITF and Eguchi won 6-4, 6-3.
I am going with Eguchi because for some reason Hsiech looked pretty shaky towoards the end of her first round match. She did manage to win against one of the favorites in that encounter but to me both of them looked incredibly tired and it was a case of he is less tired if that makes any sense. I honestly would have expected her to perform better considering this is one of the tournament she has had success in the past but now it's pretty obvious that she is not physically prepared for this type of tournament.
Eguchi defeated An-Sophie Mestach 2-6, 7-5, 6-3 in the first round and even if this might sound weird the quality of this match was better than the one Hsieh played against Dellacqua. Eguchi is a pretty decent player on hard courts and the 41/17 record that she had on hard last year would suggest that(sure they where mostly ITF tournaments but still the progress is there).
For me going with Eguchi is the right choice here eve if some consider Hsieh the big favorite. Have I not seen the match that Hsieh played and the way she finished it, I would actually agree, but in these conditions I think I'm making the right choice here.
