Prediction of Naomi Osaka – Anna Bogdan
Naomi Ossetian played on her strengths on Sunday for the winners from all corners of the field, compensating for her lack of ability to slide on the clay. But although the Ossetian righteous earned a few easy points on the back of his service, he often retreated from his backwardness.
Anna Bogda, whose back is her strongest, will try to dominate cross-border exchanges, finding unacceptable mistakes from the Japanese. But Osaka’s tumultuous predisposition is likely to have its say in rallies, especially those who play in his service.
The 23-year-old girl has an unusual ability to voluntarily create easy ways through her powerful delivery. Bogdan is doing well, which is likely to extend the points, but Osaka’s firepower could eventually break Bogdan’s defense.
