Today, May 27, 2020, at 16.00, the match between the Ukrainians Lyudmyla Kichenok (without WTA ranking) and Daria Lopatetska (379 WTA) is scheduled.
The duel takes place in group A of the UTF Ladies Invitational tournament, organized in Kiev. The recommended prognosis goes in the direction of the younger athlete, with a much higher potential in the singles event.
Lyudmyla Kichenok: Team form, news and statistics
◾️Lyudmyla (27 years old) was ranked 156th in the world in the singles, but in the meantime she reshaped herself and specialized in doubles, evolving for most of her career with her twin sister, Nadiya.
◾️In doubles, it currently ranks 41st in the WTA, being constantly present on the main tables of important tournaments.
◾️Her last official singles match dates from August 16, 2019, when she was defeated in the WTA New York qualifiers by the Russian Potapova, score 6-0 6-1.
Daria Lopatetska: Team form, news and statistics
◾️Daria (17 years old) is one of the highest hopes of tennis in Ukraine, with exceptional physical and technical qualities for her age.
◾️In the short professional career, started in 2018, he has already collected 5 ITF titles, 3 on hard and 2 on slag.
◾️She suffered a knee injury last year, and her compatriot Elina Svitolina made a very nice gesture of solidarity and borne the costs of the operation and recovery for the Kharkov kid.
◾️In 2020, she qualified for the Australian Open, but lost in the second round to McNally.
◾️The lockdown period used it to recharge physically and I expect that at the official resumption of the world circuit to continue the ascent in the standings to the top 100 WTA.

Tennis Prediction of the Day Lyudmyla Kichenok vs Daria Lopatetska
Although it is an unofficial match, I think the difference in value is too big to have surprises.
Lopatetska is a rising player in the singles, she is only 17 years old and she is very tenacious, motivated to progress.
Lyudmyla Kichenok is a good doubles player, top 100 WTA, but in singles she never excelled, and in recent years she has played extremely few matches, with disappointing results.
Personally, I don’t see how he could put outsidera’s problems to his favorite and I go with increased confidence on the teenager’s victory, at a odds of 1.40 offered by Unibet.ro.
