Mathilde Johansson vs E. Kulichkova by Tennisguy
This is a round of 16 from the round of 16 from the Croissy-Beaubourg ITF(France) (indoors) between Mathilde Johansson from France and Elizaveta Kulichkova from Russia.
In my opinion this is going to be a fairly close encounter and I am going to go with the value here and the home crowd favorite Mathilde Johansson.
Kulichkova is a rising player but to me she looked very tired in her first round win here against Broady which she won 7-5, 6-7,(4) 6-3, She clearly need more time to rest after she won last week at Quanzhou ITF and the traveling distance did not help at all either.
Johansson is a talented player in my opinion but in the past years she really disappointed and slowly dropped from being ranked 59 to 237. Even so She showed very good signs of her former self in the first round match in which she defeated Shahar Peer 6-2, 6-1. Her service was close to perfect in that match and her aggressive shots really made the difference.
I think this is a pretty good pick here because there is so much value here and considering the circumstances that I displayed Johansson is the obvious pick here.
