Anastasia Tikhonova and Alycia Parks meet in the first round of the 2023 tennis Morocco Open. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

Anastasia TikhonovaBetting Preview

Anastasia Tikhonova qualified for this tournament after beating Luca Udvardy and Valeriya Strakhova, and she’ll play her first main tour match event of the year. Tikhonova has spent all year trying to qualify for events or playing in ITF competition. Tikhonova won an ITF title back in January, she won a doubles title back in March, and she’s won 6 of her last 9 matches overall. Tikhonova has to be thrilled to finally get a match on the big stage. Tikhonova has won 6 of her last 9 matches on clay court.

Alycia Parks Betting Preview

Alycia Parks lost a challenger match last week and is riding a 3-match losing streak overall. Of course, Parks did recently make the third round of Madrid, which included a win over Victoria Azarenka, so it’s not all bad for the 22-year-old American. However, Parks has to clean up the double faults and be stronger with her serve overall if she’s going to get back on track and build some confidence before the French Open. Parks has lost her opening match in 6 of her last 7 main tour tournaments. Parks has lost 7 of her last 10 matches on clay court.

H2H History

There’s no match history between these 2 players.

Randy’s Pick

You can make a case for either of these players as they’ve had issues stringing wins together, the serves have been sloppy, and they’re just not comfortable on the main tour this year. However, Parks has shown us far more recently, and her run in Madrid should still be fresh in everyone's mind.

Give me Parks and the reasonable price.
