On Wednesday, September 23, 2020, at 13.30, the match of the second round of the WTA Strasbourg is scheduled, between the Russian Ekaterina Alexandrova (31 WTA) and Katerina Siniakova (62 WTA) from the Czech Republic. The recommended prognosis concerns the total number of aces sent by the outsider of the meeting.
Ekaterina Alexandrova: Team form, news and statistics
Ekaterina (25 years old) is a little taller than her opponent today, measuring 1.75 meters.
In the first round in Alsace, she defeated the Australian Storm Sanders (277 WTA) with a drastic score of.
He served 3 aces and received none in 40 minutes of play.
Alexandrova is a strong sportswoman, she has mostly fast and flat shots from behind the field, preferring fast surfaces. On the slag he has a record of 147 victories and 88 defeats.
He won 3 WTA indoor titles in Limoges and 1 in Shenzhen on hard outdoor, at the start of the current competition season.
In 2020 he has 7 defeats from 11 games played on slow surfaces, including in that unofficial part of the season.
Although she was born in Russia, in Chelyabinsk, she lives and trains mainly in the Czech Republic, in Prague.
Prior to the suspension of the season, she was ranked 27th in the world in the singles event, but fell after missing the second round of tournaments in Palermo, Prague, Cincinnati, US Open and Rome. He was noted for eliminating the Belgian Kim Clijsters in New York – former Grand Slam champion and world leader.
Katerina Siniakova: Team form, news and statistics
Katerina (24 years old) is 1.74 meters tall and weighs about 69 kilograms. In 11 official matches played on the main tables of the 2020 WTA competitions, it totaled 25 aces, ie an average of less than 2.5 per match. The playing surface in Strasbourg is considerably slower than the one he played in the summer weeks in the United States.
Siniakova beat American Bernarda Pera (61 WTA) in 2 hours and 24 minutes, with a score of 4-6 7-6 6-1.

Tennis Prediction of the Day Ekaterina Alexandrova vs Katerina Siniakova
I bet with great confidence on a weaker performance for Siniakova in the ace chapter, in which he will succeed at most 2 direct winning services. In 2 of the last 3 direct duels with Alexandrova, Katerina finished below this line. The Czech has changed her service mechanics quite a bit in recent weeks, since the official resumption of the WTA circuit and has not sent as many aces as in the first part of the season.
Thus, he totaled 1 with Flipkens in Cincinnati, 0 versus Kanepi at the US Open (both on hard outdoor), and then on slag – 1 with Kerber in Rome, 0 versus Kasatkina, and in the first round in Strasbourg only 1 in 3 sets against Bernardei Pera.
The Russian is a decent player on the return, she has a long extension at 1.75 meters and I think she will successfully anticipate the direction of the opposing services, also catching more difficult balls, which will land near the touches.
Bet Tips: Under 2.5 aces – Siniakova
