Madison Brengle vs Alexa Glatch by Tennisguy
This is the final of the Osprey ITF between two players from the USA, Madison Brengle and Alexa Glatch.
These two have met 5 times already and the score is in favor of Glatch who leads at 3-2.
I am very confident that Glatch will be able to take this final even though there is a huge gap in terms of ranking between the two. Glatch has been very good tennis this year and at this tournament she managed some very good wins against much higher ranked players than her. She defeated Lourdes Dominguez-Lino 6-3, 6-4, Buyukakcay 6-4, 6-1, Siegemund 6-2, 5-7, 6-0 and Rodina 6-1, 6-2. To win so easily against Dominguez-Lino who is a clay court specialist and then to demolish Rodina (who was the 4th seed) in the semifinals can only mean that Glatch is playing her best tennis ever.
Brengle has managed a decent tournament here as well and defeated the following players : Krejcikova 6-2, 6-2, Glushko 6-2, 6-2, Chirico 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 and Kalinina 6-4, 6-2 . She had some problems against Chirico and in the beginning of the match with Kalinina but she emerged victorious non the less. Today however she will be meeting a much more solid played than any she faced so far in this tournament and one against who she has lost 3 times in the past.
I think that this is going to be a close match but in my opinion this tournament will mean a lot more to Glatch who hasn't managed to get so many good results in the past years. I think she will be much more motivated to take this and from the way she played so far I strongly believe she will be able to win this title.
