Shvedova vs Vickery by Tennisguy
This is a round of 16 match from the Bogota WTA tournament(clay) between Sachia Vickery from USA and Yaroslava Shvedova from Kazakhstan.
This is going to be the first meeting between these two players.
The reason I am going with Vickery here is because Shvedova isn't really that good of a clay court player. In the past 3 years her record on clay is 12-11 so not only has she played very few matches on this surface but her winning percentage is not that good either.
Vickery has played quite a few matches on clay this year and with a pretty good win loss record of 15-3. She played last week against Caroline Garcia at the Charleston WTA tournament and even though she lost 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 I believe she made a very good impression. In this tournament she had to play the qualif. rounds where she defeated Majeric 6-3, 6-2 and Pous-Tio 7-5, 4-6, 6-4. When she got to the main draw she faced Kucova in the first round and defeated her 6-0, 5-7, 6-4.
Shvedova defeated Zanevska 6-4, 6-7(5), 6-2 in the first round and it's a pretty good win but Zanevska is not in the best form this month and a good example for that is the fact that she lost last week in the qualif. rounds at the Charleston WTA tournament against Kerkhove.
I think that if Vickery can manage a good start and get herself a break in front and eventually win the first set she could run away with the match because Shvedova is not really the type of player that turns matches around especially on clay.
