Kuznetsova vs Siegemund by Igrok
Madrid WTA, 1. round, clay
Kuznetsova (13) will play against Siegemund (42)
Kuznetsova is defending a lot of points here having reached the final last year, which she lost against Kvitova. She comes from Prague where she won against Sasnovich, Brengle and Puig. In the semifinal she walked over apparently for abdominal injury but I don’t buy that. In my opinion she wanted to be in Madrid earlier and rested few days before the tournament.
Siegemund is certainly in good shape, she is 12/2 this season on clay and comes from a fantastic run in Stuttgart where she lost only in the final against Kerber. Here she qualified to the main draw after beating Pliskova and Brengle without dropping a set. She will be competitive so over is also a good bet in my opinion but Kuznetsova has the edge.
