WTA US Open
Flavia Pennetta - Monica Niculescu
As I've said yesterday about Tommy Robredo, Flavia Pennetta loves playing in New York too. Same as the spaniard she's used playing in the second week of the american Slam.
She has some of her best performances on american hard court as her explosive gameplay is favoured by this enviroment.
More than the italian's pluses, my prediction relies on the romanian's phisycal issues. Niculescu has got injured in Washington and carried the problems with her since then. More than that, two days ago she and Panova were a few minutes away from playing the longest WTA match in US Open history. The combination between that injury and the thriller played here I think will deprive the romanian by her no1 weapon, the movement.
And if Niculescu won't be able to show the maximum of her movement skills I don't see what could her oppose to a player who left her 3 games in their previous 4 sets played.
I rarely bet on Pannetta's matches, but here she's got the matchup advantage, the favourable context and the familiar venue. I think she will win 2:0.
Let's go green!
