Tennis Prediction of the Day Mihaela Buzarnescu vs Daria Kasatkina
I’m expecting a balanced match between the two players, having an aggressive style of play, mistakes being common. The match announces a long-lasting game with a high number of games, making it difficult to believe that one of the two combatants will be able to maintain a high level of play throughout the match, the domination periods being split, being great chances that the game needs a decisive set to decide the winner.
