Stosur vs Puig
1st round in Australian open and a match between Samantha Stosur and Monica Puig.
Here I will be short- 4:1 wins for Samantha in direct matches, both of them are not in their best form, so the Ausie crowd has to do their job giving wings to Stosur as they did it for so many years in Australia. I don't know what's happening with Monica after the golden olympic medal in Rio, but she can't find her rhytm of play for more than an year. She thinks more about her country and the damages there after the hurricanes and her tennis career doens't look like her priority, she is just not concentrated enough during her matches, something like Bouchard. Both of them showed they have big potential, but are not motivated enough or have any other problems and priorities, I don't know...She lost in the qualifications in Sydney last week.
I can't see Stosur to lose against Puig in straight sets in Melbourne. I'm playing safely here with Stosur to win just a set. People who want to risk a little bit more can try a win for Stosur. Odds are about 2.00 and they dropped in the last hours.
