Andreescu vs Goerges
Final match in Auckland between Bianca Andreescu and Julia Goerges.
I spoke a lot about Bianca in my previous pick about her SF match against Su Wei Hsieh. What's the most important- she is 18 years old and that week is like a fairy tail for her. Obviously she will progress in the ranking and will almost reach top 100. She defeated players like Wozniacki, Venus and Hsieh+ a lot of other players in the qualifications and Babos in the 1st round. I saw a little tiredness in her performance in the end of the match against Hsieh, but that's understandable, because it's not easy to play so many matches in about 10 days, she still doesn't get used to it. Her adrenaline and fighting spirit will be the once she will rely on during the final. Andreescu proved she can play aggressively, but I am still not sure how much time she can play on high level as she needs to do during the final against Goerges.
Goerges played much less matches and is another seeded player Andreescu will have the chance to face and why not to eliminate. She is experienced player and is the favourite in the final, that's understandable, but she is also a player, who can go in downfalls for a long time, if she can't find her rhythm and that's the job Andreescu has to do tomorrow- to start aggressively and dictate the points.
I am not sure if Andreescu will have the power tomorrow to be equal for a long time to Goerges. If it goes to three sets, the priority for the final win is looking to be on Georges side. We will see if Andreescu still has enough power in her tank, she is young and energetic, but that's really a big amount of matches. That's the only reason which stops me to play straight win for Bianca.
I chose to play +1.5 sets AH for Andreescu in Pinnacle at 1.76 odds, because I strongly believe that if everything is okey with her as movement and power in the shots, she can take one of the first two sets and cover this sets handicap.
