Wickmayer vs Knapp by Igrok
Miami, 1. round, hard
Wickmayer (47) will play against Knapp (70)
Wickmayer is 6/7 on hard this year, she had only a very good run in Acapulco where she reached the semifinal but lost against Stephens for 2 sets to 0. Last year she didn't go through the 1R but now she has the chance to do better looking at her opponent.
Knapp doesn't play since last year US Open when she retired due to knee injury. She had an arthroscopic surgery on her knee last year and cancelled several tournaments since then. She was supposed to be back in Australia but she wasn't ready. Her main objective this year are the Olympic games in Rio and she wants to be ready for this event. She will be very rusty after 6 months of inactivity. We also need to consider that she is mainly a clay court player and this will give edge to Wickmayer who has won against the Italian already last year in Indiana Wells and Wimbledon in straight sets.
Play now US Players are welcome
