Giorgi vs Vinci by Tennisguy
Vinci is ranked 16 and Giorgi 69. They have met only once in a meeting that took place last year at the US Open which Vinci won 6-4, 6-2.
It's true that Vinci hasn't started the year very well but in the first round here she really performed well against Ksenia Pervak, and won 6-3, 6-3. She served very well, and easily won her service points with the exception of only one break where she didn't play so well and gave away the break. Se is a very versatile player with a lot of slice shots and drop balls so that will surely bother Giorgi who needs a constant type of play to get her rhythm going.
Giorgi didn't start the season very well herself, but in march at the Indian Wells tournament she really did a great job. She managed to reach the 4th round there and won against some top opponents. The thing is she did meet players like Petkovic, Cirstea and Sharapova who don't usually don't have a lot of variety in their game, as they are more of a "hit as hard as you can" type of players. I'm not going to take anything away from Giorgi because they where great wins, I'm just saying that she will have difficulties against Vinci as she will probably have to generate a lot of pace on every shot she makes.
It's probably going to be a close match, but I think the experience and the fact the she already easily defeated Giorgi last year will make Vinci believe a lot in this win and she might just realize it .
