Govortsova vs Niculescu by Draska9
WTA Nottingham, 2.round, grass, 15:00h
We have once again great offer as yesterday on Govortsova. She continued great streak on this tournament, again winning with 6-1 6-2, allowing her opponent to save her service game only 2 out of 7 times. Now she has lost only 11 games in 4 matches. Todays opponent, Niculescu, for sure is better than Dunne, Buyukakcay, Beygelzimer and Zhang, but she also is not top player.
Niculescu is 61. on WTA table, she had poor start in season with 6/12, but in last 7 days she managed to make 6 wins and got title in ITF Marseille. She beat some decent names there as Duque Marino, Parmentier, Vickery, Allertova, but neither of them is something special. Yesterday she had her first match on grass, against Lepchenko, where she won in 3 sets after coming back from 4-6 in 1. set. Even Lepchenko is solid player, on 44. place, she is awful on grass courts having 8/18 record through career and also is completely out of form at the moment. Niculescu is totally 12/16 in her career on grass, thats also pretty bad. I watched her match yesterday...and it was everything but the good playing. So much breaks, weak shots from both sides, awful moving on court..Govortsova will for sure know how to punish this. I think Niculescu will have much problems with Govortova's returns which are very strong, powerful and precise. I think odds are just to big, as there are big chances for belarussian to win this in straight sets. GL.
