Svetana is playing great and deserves this shot at small stakes. I am really impressed how she handled different types of players in previous rounds. All wins in 2 sets + one WO which only can be good for her fitness. She is bashing good from both sides with smart tactical placement and that can be huge upper hand against a player like Sabalenka.
Aryna was close to go home today against Zheng as she was trailing break down in deciding set. Still she managed to convert around and advance, but this 1.50 on ML is not so valuable for me at all. Svetlana is not like Zheng, so she will need to do better in order to go further. I like to see power and streinght in womens tennis, but that is basicly all she has. Zero tactics, no plan B, just hitting as hard as she can. That on a good day can be very unplayable, but when it stops, she is in trouble.
Conditions here sure does not sute her game in best way, Weather forecast for tomorrow is windy, and I see that she will have problems in her attacking department. Svetlana can handle wind much better with more variety in game and I hope she can continue with her great tennis and deliever here.
