Kvitova vs Vinci by Tennisguy
They have met 4 times so far with the score being tied at 2-2.
In this tournament Kvitova defeated Peng in the second round and then didn't have to play against Venus Williams because the american retired. I don't know if that's necessarily the best thing for her but I think she will have problems in today's match. Vinci is a very tricky opponent to play against and Kvitova needs some sort of rhythm in order to produce her power-shots. She isn't known for her court coverage so the slice shot which Vinci plays frequently will bother her a lot.
Vinci really produced some great wins here defeating Shvedova in the first round, Radwanska in the second and then another surprise winning against Makarova. She really found her best form and when that happens she is a very hard opponent to face.
It's true that the better player is without a doubt Kvitova but she has played quite some matches in the past two weeks so I don't really know how much she want this tournament. I say this because the Singapore champions tournament is very close and she might not want to force anything.
It is a risky bet overall because Vinci need to play as she did in her previous matches or she will have no chance whatsoever. If she does play well I think she has a good chance and at these odds I think she deserves a go.
