Diyas vs Anna Blinkova (By: Jshoot)
This preview will be between Zarina Diyas vs Anna Blinkova in 1st Round of Taipei WTA (Taiwan).
I'm surprised when I see the odds of Zarina Diyas to win this match. I'm not sure why the bookers give her decent odds, may be because she's injured? But she had 2 weeks rest from her last game in Australia Open and that should be give her plenty enough to recover.
Zarina Diyas in on rank 60th, she had good run in few tournaments during end of last year. She won the WTA tournament and moved her rank drastically to top 60, she also had a good battle against Svitolina (top 10 player) in Hong Kong even though he lost but it was a very closed game. So in my opinion she's not just a fluke top 60 player, and her best was 31st a few years ago.
In term of ability, rank, experienced & mentality, Diyas is so much better than 19 years old Blinkova who is still outside rank 100. She lost against Shuai Zhang in straight sets less than 20 games in Shenzhen this year while Diyas defeated Zhang later on. Both players tends to make unforced errors but Diyas is more matured, more experienced and what I like about her is that she doesn't give up and show resilience to save break points. I see valuable value of 1.8 on Diyas -1.5 handicap. Even if the match goes 3 sets, -1.5 is easy to cover.
Good luck for anyone who follows.
