V Diatchenko – A Kubareva Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 03:00

But the American is still one of the greatest players of all time, with the power to take the racquet out of anyones hands. Shes also unquestionably lost some of her aura of invincibility. Recently shes struggled to stay fit and withdrew after one match at the Italian Open. Jim:Williams is not the force she once was.

Yet, Serenas frequent injury withdraws is cause for concern. One wrong-footed point or ill-fated slide could spell the end for the former World #1. If the American superstar has sufficiently healed, this will be a quick, straight sets win. Clearly, Russias Vitalia Diatchenko has talent, regularly bringing in ITF wins. Tracey:Perhaps Serena Williams biggest challenge in this match will be the errant knee.

Unsurprisingly, Sharapova will head in as the strong favourite. Maria Sharapova has been slowly working her way back up the WTA rankings over the past year following her return from suspension and enters Wimbledon as the 24th seed. The former world #1 and five-time Grand Slam champion faces compatriot Vitalia Diatchenko in the first round at the All England Club, a player who currently finds herself well outside the top 100.

Sharapova, standing at 188cm, has a powerful all-round game, particularly from the baseline. When she first arrived on the Tour her serve was regarded as a strength, but persistent shoulder problems have seen that diminish. Fortunately, the rest of her game has enabled her to remain a force on Tour, and the speed of her groundstrokes and her quality at the net make her a tough prospect for any opponent on a grass court.

Vitalia Diatchenko: results and record

Jim:Putintseva has played the best tennis of her career on the clay courts at Roland Garros, where she has twice made the quarterfinals. She also arrives in good form after winning the Nuremberg Cup. Indeed, the Kazakh looks to be one of the most dangerous floaters in the draw.

Serena Williams, meanwhile, has the most talent of just about any woman in history. Yesh:Diatchenko is not someone to underestimate. She hasnt been healthy at all this year, though, and that raises major questions for her abilities in Paris right now. She has talent and is certainly itching to make a statement.

Sharapova, the world #4 at the time, took the win with relative ease, dominating virtually every aspect of the match to win 6-3 6-1. Diatchenkos match was riddled with unforced errors she committed 26 compared to 18 winners while Sharapova was clinical, striking 24 winners compared with just eight unforced errors. These two have met just once on the WTA Tour, and that occasion was also at one of the Majors; the second round of Roland Garros, back in 2015.

Diatchenkos last match saw her retire one game away from a loss in the qualifiers at Mallorca. Though that was a disappointing result, she had a solid win a week earlier in Manchester when she beat Jennifer Brady in three sets. Unfortunately, she followed that up with a straight sets loss to world #172 Marie Bouzkova though, meaning her start to the grass court season has been indifferentat best.

While she looked good in those lead up matches, the German is in a different league up against Johanna Konta. The Brit is enjoying a break out year on clay. Tracey:Antonia Lottner reached the main draw through qualifiers. I expect well see Konta make a deep run, at least to the quarterfinals.

Head 2 Head

Diatchenko also boasts an aggressive game from the baseline, though its unlikely shell be able to match her more highly fancied countrywoman for power. Too many unforced errors will certainly cost her this match. Diatchenko will also need to control her own power, something she has struggled with throughout her career. Though she is generally able to hold her own against the bigger hitters on Tour, she will likely spend large periods of the match defending from beyond the baseline.

Lottner, meanwhile, is making her debut in the main draw in Paris, but will be match tough after a run through the qualifying. Jim:Konta has never won a match at the French Open, but shes looked assured on the terre battue so far this season, with her run to the Italian Open final particularly impressive.

Collins leads the head to head 1-0, and I expect shell expand that lead. The slices, spins and dropshots can easily frustrate the most skilled opponents. But, Tatjana Maria is so tricky. The American is a feisty competitor who can power her way through the toughest matches. Tracey:Dangerous match for Danielle Collins.

Diatchenko will play an aggressive game style in an attempt to nullify Sharapovas power, but the 24th seed will be too strong, and will walk away from this match a straight sets winner for the second time in their head-to-head. Its difficult to see Sharapova being particularly troubled by this match up. She has the advantage in virtually every facet of the game, and appears to have recaptured some good form coming into the tournament.
