Cristina-Andreea Mitu vs Keys by Tennisguy
This is a round of 16 match from the Charleston WTA tournament between Cristina-Andreea Mitu from Romania and Madison Keys from USA.
This will be the first encounter between these two players.
I think that Mitu can manage a big surprise here and eliminate the 7th seed Madison Keys. She has played very good tennis so far and defeated Lepchenko 6-2, 2-1( Lepchenko retired at this score) and Tomljanovic 6-2, 6-2 in the second round. She is a good player on clay and her record on this surface in 2015 is 13-4.
Keys defeated Bondarenko in the first round 6-2, 6-1 and I actually didn't expect her to do so well considering it was her first clay court match of the year. She served well but she did get a lot of easy points because Bondarenko couldn't handle her power at all and was completely outmatched. Mitu on the other hand is very good at managing countershots and I think that could prove very annoying for Keys.
I think the most important factor of Mitu in the get go of the match is to hold her service and try not to offer any easy shots to Keys who will most likely try to finish the points very early. If the Romanian manages to move Keys from side to side I think she can have a chance today.
It's a risky bet but seeing how Mitu played great tennis this week I think she can do it again today and manage a huge upset.
