Madison Brengle vs Ostapenko by Patyi
Brengle has a good, 5-2 record in Miami. She has very good footwork and consistent baseline game, one of the slowisht hard court suits her game well. Last year she won against Giorgi and Anna Schmiedlova, in 2015 she won against Krunic and in both years she lost against super-consistent players: Aga Radwanska and Caroline Wozniacki. This year she has already played two qualifing matches she won against Vickery easily and won against Sorribes Tormo in two hard sets. But she had time to catch the rhythm.
Miami is not Ostapenko's hunting area. There players must play with controlling agression but Jelena is usually erratic, she plays with powerful flat shots without control and plan. On fast courts this style sometimes work but on slower courts, against a good retriver it will be a hard task.
They have already met two times this year, the Latvian girl won both meetings with almost same scoreline: hard first set with a lot of breaks, finally she took it 7-5 and quicker second set but those were a good fight too. They played these matches on quicker surfaces than now, those circumstances fitted Ostapenko more than Miami. Brengle has known the courts, she is well-motivated and she is ready for big fight, I think the third time will be the lucky time for Madison and finally Ostapenko will fail.
