Ajla Tomljanović vs Madison Keys
|Date & Time||Wednesday August 1, 2018, 1:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
23-year-old American tennis sensation, Madison Keys will be in action as she prepares to play her next match at the WTA San Jose Open. The American will take on Ajla Tomljanović from Australia. Both players will look to get some decent results before the US Open which means that this is an important game. This dynamic should ensure that we get to watch a great tennis match.
Ajla Tomljanović won her opening round match in straight sets. The Australian was dominant and showed great skill in that victory. This will be a good match for Ajla Tomljanović as she was eliminated by Madison Keys at Wimbledon a few weeks ago and I am sure that the Australian will want to reverse the result and get some revenge for that match. Ajla Tomljanović has had a decent few months as she has managed some decent results in WTA events. I am sure the Australian will look to cash in on that form and hope to win a title soon.
On the other side of the court, Madison Keys will see this as a great chance to prepare for the US Open. The American had a poor Wimbledon campaign as she was eliminated in the third round. As a top-ranked player, she would have expected much more in London and I am sure she will hope to do much better at Flushing Meadows. As far as this match is concerned, Madison Keys is the favorite and I am sure that she will feel that she should win easily. The American beat the Australian only weeks ago and that knowledge will be massive in deciding this game.
I am going to Madison Keys winning this match. The American is the better player and beat Ajla Tomljanović only recently. In addition to that, Madison Keys is also at home so that should also play to her advantage.
