Sasnovich vs Garcia (By: Jshoot)
This is WTA Australia Open between Aliaksandra Sasnovich vs Caroline Garcia.
Sasnovich is on rank 87th while Garcia is on rank 8th. Garcia is favourite to win this game but both players have similar stats on 1st serve in, 1st serve win & 2nd serve win so far in this tournament, which makes Sasnovich's chance to win this game isn't far from Garcia.
Sasnovich defeated McHale (6-3,6-2) with 69% of 1st serve in, 77% of 1st serve win, 13% of 2nd serve win (2 win out of 16 2nd serve!). She had 18 winners out of 57 points won while McHale only had 7 winners out 40 points won. A lot of unforced errors from both players but Sasnovich had better first serve which was crucial. The next round she defeated Baroni (6-3,6-1) with 65% of 1st serve in, 90% of 1st serve win, 38% of 2nd serve win. She hit 13 winners out of 62 points won, while Baroni hit more winners (20) out of 37 points won. It's an obvious comfortable win from Sasnovich as Baroni made too many unforced errors.
Garcia defeated Witthoeft (7-5,6-3) with 76% 1st serve in, 69%1st serve win, 38% 2nd serve win. She had 33 winners out of 71 total points won in that game while Witthoeft only had 12 winners out of 60 total points won. The next round she defeated Vondrousova in 3 sets (6-7,6-2,7-6) with 70%1st serve in, 75% 1st serve win, 60% 2nd serve win. She had 42 winners out of 117 total points won while Vondrousova had 30 winners out of 102 total points won.
Both players are very poor in their second serve but impressive in their first serve. However, in those two games Sasnovich relied on her opponent unforced errors too much, while Garcia didn't. I don't think both McHale & Baroni put Sasnovich in much difficulty situation. Garcia on the other hand showed couple times of resilience moments when she made unforced errors but also able to hit a lot of winners and able to win games. Especially with such a hot weather in Melbourne, mental game is very important in this game and Garcia isn't someone that any opponent can just be defeated by relying on her unforced errors. I think Garcia will win this game and -3.5 handicap is reachable even if the match goes 3 sets.
