Rybarikova vs Claire Feuerstein by Tennisguy
This is a 1st round match from the Katowice(indoor hard) WTA tournament between Magdalena Rybarikova from Slovakia and Claire Feuerstein from France.
Rybarikova is ranked 37 and Feuerstein 123. They have met once in 2007 in a ITF tournament that took place in indoor hard and the slovakian won that match 6-3, 3-6, 6-3.
I think here is a huge difference between these two players in favor of Rybarikova. Sure she isn't in the best form this year but I can't really see her having a lot of troubles against Feuerstein. The french player won some matches in the ITF tournaments this year which probably is the reason the odds are as they are.
Claire Feuerstein had to play the qualif rounds to get to the main draw, and she defeated the following players : Katarzyna Pyka, Viktorija Golubic and Alexandra Krunic. She won easily against all these opponents but to be honest they all where low caliber competition. This year she once hasn't been in the main draw of a WTA tournament as shee tried to qualify in 4 tournaments but with no success.
Rybarikova is probably not in the best shape but she did manage a decent tournament last week in Monterrey where she lost to the eventual winner Ana Ivanovic in the QF 6-1, 0-6, 6-2. I think she is slowly but surely getting to the level she was last year, because she really needs to considering that the Grand Slams are close now.
I don't think there's that much to say about this mach. I just consider that the difference between these two players is very large, and Rybarikova will probably end up with an easy win.
