Tomljanovic vs Rebecca Peterson
2nd round in Mallorca where Ajla Tomljanovic will face Rebecca Peterson.
This match looks very balanced and it's not very easy to pick who will win it, but I think Tomljanovic chances are a little bit bigger. Why? Croatians know how to play on this surface, really don't know how they do it, if it's instinctively or not, but their results on grass are awesome..Cilic, Vekic, even Coric(we saw what he did yesterday against Alex Zverev), maybe we can add in the future Tomljanovic, although she was born in Zagreb, but not presenting Croatia now, but Australia, after she gained citizenship. Ajla has everything to win here- good service, aggressive returns and excellent footwork for a woman.
There one thing which a little bit frightens me here and that's the fact Rebecca hits the ball also with a lot of aggression from the baseline and that can cause problems to Tomljanovic. Here it will be a game about who will be more precisely in the rallies from the baseline and of course, easy points on serve will be a big bonus.
They had two matches in lower class tournaments in Waco and Honolulu and both of them won one time. Here I will go with Ajla Tomljanovic- really prefer her when we talk about playing on gras courts. Maybe that's not the best argumentation I was possible to do, but just have the feeling Ajla will find the right way to progress to the QFs in Mallorca.
