Tennis Prediction of the Day Mihaela Buzarnescu vs Anna Blinkova
Despite the fact that Mihaela Buzarnescu has made a spectacular comeback against Laura Siegemund, against Anna Blinkova she will have a much more difficult mission, the young Russian player being a much more consistent player on this hard surface, and if Mihaela will continue the series of unforced mistakes from the last matches, its chances will be quite reduced. I count on the victory of the Russian player, Anna Blinkova.
