Amanda Carreras vs Katarzyna Kawa by Tennisguy
This is the final of the Cairo 3 ITF between Amanda Carreras from Great Britain and Katarzyna Kawa from Poland.
This is going to be the first encounter between these players.
I am a bit surprised that Kawa is not the favorite in this final because from the way she performed in this tournament I really think she is the one who played the best tennis. She defeated Alice Savoretti 6-3, 6-1, Dina Hegab 6-1, 6-3, Anastasia Pivovarova 6-3, 6-3 and Tereza Mihalikova 6-2, 6-1. She barely had any problems in any of these matches, and to beat Pivovarova who is a pretty decent player at this level and Mihalikova who was in a great form and had just won the Cairo 2 ITF last week has got to mean that Kawa is playing very good tennis.
Carreras has also played quite well and defeated the following players : Taisiya Zakarlyuk 6-2, 6-1, Sandra Samir 6-2, 6-3, Amandine Hesse 6-4, 6-1 and Barbara Haas 6-4, 6-4. Her win against Heese was pretty good but against Haas she did have moment where she struggled even though she managed to win in straight sets. Carreras covers the court pretty well which is one the reasons why she is a good clay court player. That being said she hasn't got the service and hitting power that Kawa has so she will be more on the defensive end in this match. I think that Kawa will control most of the points in this final and the game will be mostly on her racket so for that reason she is the one to back here.
I honestly think that Kawa should have been the favorite here so I am picking her to win this final.
