One of the most interesting games tonight from the second round of the Australian Open, womens tableau will be the one between Varvara Lepchenko from USA and Elena Vesnina from Russia.Lepchenko has an wonderful 2012 which saw her rise in the rankings till 19th place. She started 2013 with a few though draws, losing against Serena Williams and Makarova in her first two games of the season, winning eventualy her first against Hercog, here, at Melbourne. On the other hand Vesnina won last week her first WTA tournament in her 7th final. She is playing very well but I expect that the incredible run in Hobart to take its toll on the russian player and her endeavour ai the AO to be short lived. She has a very good morale, her game has momentum but 2,85 for a very though hardcourt player like Lepchenko?!?! I say thanks, and take it with both hands. Lepchenko I think is the better player between these two and eventhough Vesnina, arguably, passes through the most fructuous stage of her career I still back Lepchenko to win this one.
