In the first round of the WTA Hobart singles competition, Lizette Cabrera meets Caroline Garcia.
The game is scheduled first on the central ground, from 03:00. Then you can read her analysis, and at the end you will find the tip offered.
◾️Lizette is a host country player, ranked 129th in the WTA.
◾️The position in the world hierarchy did not ensure her presence on the main board, so she received a Wild Card from the organizers.
◾️For Cabrera it is the second race of 2020: last week he lost in the 2nd qualifying round at WTA Brisbane – 5-7, 4-6 with Marie Bouzkova.
◾️Last year he did not win any matches on the main WTA boards.
◾️The 22-year-old Australian has 36 wins in 2019, all at ITF level or through qualifications.
◾️At 1.67 meters high, the athlete with Philippine origins moves well in the field, but shows rather high deficiencies when attacked in reverse speed.
◾️The year 2019 was a poor one for Caroline Garcia.
◾️The French player has won only half of the matches played in the singles competition (27 out of 54).
◾️This week she is ranked 8th in the Hobart title.
◾️In the first tournament of the year, in Auckland, Garcia passed in the first round by Taylor Townsend, and in the second round he gave up with Eugenie Bouchard.
◾️Caroline has a well-placed forehand, a shot that can easily destabilize any defensive.
◾️She feels good at the net, where she advances every time she has the opportunity.
◾️In 2019, the 26-year-old played a pivotal role in winning the Fed Cup trophy – both in the semifinals and in the final, bringing France’s victory to the double, with Kristina Mladenovic.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Lizette Cabrera vs Caroline Garcia
Caroline Garcia has a much richer experience than her opponent, who has never been ranked among the top 100 athletes in the world.
Caro experienced difficulties last year, but as we saw her playing last week in Auckland, the trend is upward.
From the point of view of the shots Garcia is better, and if she is 100% focused on what she has to do on the field, I don’t see how she could be eliminated by Cabrera.
