Scheepers vs Panova by Tennisguy
This is a second round match from the Bogota WTA tournament between Chanelle Scheepers from South Africa and Alexandra Panova from Russia.
Scheepers is ranked 79 and Panova 134. They have met once in 2007 in a ITF tournament that took place on hard which Panova won 7-5, 0-6, 6-4.
Scheepers seems to be back in form and she is playing some good tennis. Last week in Charleston she managed a very good match against Venus Williams but eventually lost 7-5, 7-5. In this tournament she won in the first round against Karin Knapp who is a clay court specialist 6-3, 7-6(4). She is a good server who relies mostly on her forehand shot which packs some power in it.
Panova is trying to get back in the top 100 by playing a lot of ITF tournaments. She won some matches there but there's nothing really notable to say about her at this point. She played ok in her first round match here against Mladenovic, but she really met an opponent that struggles a lot this year. Mladenovic made a very high amount of unforced errors and I don't think that will happen with Scheepers in this second round match.
After seeing the way Scheepers performed against Venus last week and the win she had in the 1st round against a very good clay court player like Knapp , I really can't see her having any problems vs Panova who mostly played ITF tournaments this year.
