Eva Zagorac vs Ema Mikulcic by Tennisguy
This is a first round match from the Maribor ITF tournament (clay) between home crowd favorite Eva Zagorac and Ema Mikulcic from Croatia.
This will be the first encounter between these two players.
I think that Mikulcic is way overrated in this encounter given the performances she has had this year. She is 3-3 on clay in 2015 and she is far from the level of tennis she has showed in the previous years. She retired last week in the first round at the Bol 2 ITF tournament after she was behind 6-3, 4-1 against Zidansek. The retirement is surely not a good sign and along with her lack of results this year should definitely not make her such a big favorite.
Eva Zagorac is 5-2 on clay this year and judging by her performance last week when she reached the final of the Velenje ITF tournament I have to say I actually think she should have been given much more credit in this match. She did lose that final to Rubini but not without a fight as the score was 4-6, 7-5, 6-2. Also Rubini is a player in a very good form on clay as she is 14-5 on that surface so I think Zagorac has improved a lot.
To me the odds are way off in this encounter and I think Zagorac deserves much more credit so for me it's a very easy choice here.
