Anhelina Kalinina vs Jovana Jaksic by Tennisguy
This is a first round match from the Osprey ITF (USA clay) between Anhelina Kalinina from Ukraine and Jovana Jaksic from Serbia.
I am a quite surprised that Jaksic is considered such a big underdog here. Sure she has had a pretty poor year and only 2 wins but still she played against much better opposition than Kalinina who I must say hasn't had such a good year herself.
Kalinina actually got to the main draw here do to a lucky loser card. She lost in the last qualif. round match here against Osaka so that's another reason why I don't think she should be the favorite today.
Jaksic has had problems this year with her game but I still think that she can actually manage a easy win against the modest opponent she has today. She is without a doubt the better server of the two and the won with the more aggressive shots. In my opinion the only way Jaksic loses this match is if she commits a huge amount of unforced errors which hopefully will not happen.
I think this represents incredible value and backing a player that is more than 100 spots above her opponent and has odds of 3.07 is surely a good decision.
