Mertens vs Beatriz Haddad Maia (By: Stanioooo)

2nd round of the tournament in Hobart and a match between Elise Mertens and Beatriz Haddad Maia.

Both of these players won their first matches and Mertens's opponent looked a little bit harder on paper. She succeeded to eliminate Kurumi Nara with outstanding performance 6:0 6:4. She dominated during the match and showed that her form is rising. After the narrow match against Kerber in Hopman cup where she lost in two tie-breaks, Mertens beat the home player Daria Gavrilova and Genie Bouchard. I think she has good chances to progress in this tournament why not to the semifinal or final, we will see.

Both of them are young players- Haddad Maia is left-handed, while Mertens is right-handed. I think Mertens has the better serve, although both of them are vulnerable on attacks especially on their 2nd serve. I watched the highlights of Haddad Maia first match for the season against Radwanska- nothing special and untypical for both of them- a lot of pressure on opponent's serve combined with a lot of breaks and turnbacks.

The moment form in on Mertens side and I'm going with her. I think there will be a lot of breaks but the one with more and with the final win will be Elise Mertens.
