Tennis Prediction of the Day Ana Bogdan vs Veronika Kudermetova
Rusoiaca starts with the first chance in this confrontation, having a much more consistent game than in 2017 when she was last defeated by the Romanian and even though she will have the entire tribune in Cluj against her, I think she will be able to bring a point to the Russian team in this duel.
I do not think that Ana Bogdan will manage to mount so well in front of her supporters, the pressure to be missile no.
1 of the national one being high, and this aspect will hardly hang on the shoulders of romance.
