The Line: -- Over/Under:
German tennis player, Anna-Lena Friedsam has made it into the quarterfinals of the Internazionali Femminili di Palermo in Italy. At this stage of the tournament, Anna-Lena Friedsam will play against Jil Teichmann from Switzerland.
Anna-Lena Friedsam had a big win in the previous round as she defeated Alize Cornet in straight sets. It was an impressive result for Friedsam since Cornet was the number 2 seed. During the win, Anna-Lena Friedsam impressed with her receiving. Anna-Lena Friedsam won 54% of her receiving points which allowed her to break Alize Cornet’s serve on 6 occasions. The receiving has been very strong for Anna-Lena Friedsam all through the tournament as she has already won 10 return games in only 2 matches. With that in mind, Anna-Lena Friedsam needs to improve her serving. Friedsam on won 64% of her service games in the previous round. With the competition getting near the end, Anna-Lena Friedsam must improve her serving if she wishes to compete.
On the other side of the coin, Jil Teichmann looked emphatic as she won her previous match in straight sets. It was a comfortable win for Jil Teichmann as she won 80% of her service games and 4 return games. Jil Teichmann entered this tournament in good form as made the quarterfinals of the Ladies Open Lausanne. Considering her recent form, Jil Teichmann may be tough to beat in this tournament.
This will be the first time that Anna-Lena Friedsam and Jil Teichmann will be playing each other at a WTA event.
Anna-Lena Friedsam has shown great determination to defeat some big names in this tournament. That being said, I see Friedsam losing this match. The serve has been a big issue for Anna-Lena Friedsam and I see that being costly. Looking at Jil Teichmann, the Swiss superstar has been in outstanding form and she has all her bases covered. Jil Teichmann seems the stronger player and I see her winning this match and securing a spot in the semifinals.
