Sunam Jeong vs Yuuki Tanaka by Tennisguy
This is a first round match from the Goyang ITF tournament(hard) between Sunam Jeong from South Korea and Yuuki Tanaka from Japan.
Sunam Jeong has played quite well this year and she has a record of 7-2 on hard this year. She played 2 qualif. matches here in this tournament so she could be on the main draw. In those matches she defeated Eun Se Jang 6-1, 6-0 and Ah Song 6-2, 6-1. She covers the court very well and she is usually pretty decent on her service as well. She does need to work on her backhand more but for this match alone it should be enough for her to control most of the points.
Yuuki Tanaka is the better ranked player and I think that's the main reason she is considered the favorite today. That being said she played on grass in the past month and that might effect her transition to hard court a bit.
I think that Sunam Jeong is more motivated and overall more talented than her opponent today so I believe backing her is the right choice.
