Kaia Kanepi (23th) did an impressive match on the first round, by crushing Meusburger in 2 short sets. Clay is definitely the surface where she plays her best tennis by distributing shots strongly and efficiently from her baseline.
Moreover it seems that she feels well on this Portugal Open, indeed she reached the semi-finals last year knowing that she was just coming back from an important injury, and she simply won the tournament two years ago.
Irina Begu (117th) is showing good tennis on clay on ITF last couple of months, indeed she reached 3 finals and won 2 of them. Now I have doubt that she can repeat it at one level higher on WTA, especially against top players such as Kanepi.
Moreover, she passed qualifications here in Oeiras, so this match against Kanepi will be her fifth match in-a-row in 5 days, she can feel tired, which won't help to compete against the tennis of Kanepi.
Moreover, Kanepi already met Begu on clay, it was 2 years ago during the French Open and the estonian player won comfortably in 2 sets.
So, I think that Kanepi will win this match, I try her win in 2 sets.
