Slovenian tennis player, Tamara Zidanšek has made it into the second round of the 2019 WTA Thailand Open. At this stage of the tournament, Tamara Zidanšek is set to play against Jennifer Brady from the United States.
Tamara Zidanšek won her opening round match after her opponent retired during the second set of the match. It was a dominant performance by Tamara Zidanšek as she won the opening set to love before breaking her opponents serve early in the second set. It has been a tough start to 2019 for Tamara Zidanšek as she has only won 2 matches all season. Tamara Zidanšek is only 21 and she is yet to establish herself on the main stage which could be decisive in this match.
On the other side of the coin, Jennifer Brady beat Caroline Garcia in the opening round. It was a big win for Brady as she eliminated the number 2 seed in straight sets. During the win, Jennifer Brady returned serve exceptionally well as she won 43% of her return points which resulted in her winning 4 break points. Jennifer Brady has been in decent form as she made the semifinals of the doubles tournament at the Australian Open.
This will be the first time that Tamara Zidanšek and Jennifer Brady will play each other at a WTA event.
Jennifer Brady and Tamara Zidanšek are both young players and neither have won any titles at the WTA level. That being said, I am going to pick Jennifer Brady to win this match. Brady had a big win in the previous round as she eliminated a very accomplished player in Caroline Garcia. In addition to that, Brady looks to be very confident after her impressive run in doubles tennis at the Australian Open. With that in mind, I see Jennifer Brady making it into the third round of this tournament.
