Tennis Prediction of the Day Kirsten Flipkens vs Elena Rybakina
Although it has not even yielded a single set along the four games played in this WTA tournament, young Elena Rybakina will meet on Friday a remarkable opponent, motivated to defend her points in the previous edition. So I will choose to count on a victory of much more experienced Belgian player Kirsten Flipkens.
