Zheng vs Khromacheva
Final match in An-Ning(China) between the 4th seeded Saisai Zheng and Irina Khromacheva.
I believed in Saisai and played her so many times during this tournament and she succeeded to win all of the matches. I know she is the main condender for the title because she's in excellent form winning the previous tournament in Zhengzhou. She is moving and playing good on both surfaces(hard and clay) and maybe that's the reason she earned so many wins on different surfaces. She dominated in all of her matches in these two tournaments and second title at home will be the perfect for her. She's fighting to become first racquet of China once again and the win against maybe the best Chinese player at all in the last couple of years Shuai Peng in the SFs proved she progressed a lot after being out of the court for half an year.
Irina Khromacheva looks nothing special in the last couple of weeks with so many early losses in the start of the tournaments both on hard and clay courts. The Russian player has really impressive performance this week and the final is totally deserved, but I think it will be really hard to beat Saisai in the final.
Saisai is so much higher in the ranking than Khromacheva, both of them are young players. Also Saisai plays infront of home crowd in the final and she is in better form. Sometimes there's much more panic and pressure for the home player in such kind of matches, but Asians can control their nerves really good, they are mentally strong nation and I think Saisai will find the way to win the final, no matter in straight or three sets.
Title for Saisai Zheng is my prediction here.
