Tennis Prediction of the Day Pont Yafan Wang vs Patricia Maria Țig
I go to favorite number 6 on the main board of Hua Hin.
Right now, Yafan is over 50 places higher in the WTA hierarchy, thanks to a consistently good track record over the past 12 months.
Țig comes from a lower level of competitiveness, with positive results in the ITF competitions, but even there he dropped out of 3 of the last 5 tournaments he started in November, January and February!
Prediction Today: Wang – win the match (including dropout)
Yafan Wang is looking for a first victory this season, being in a rather bad period, while the Romanian already has 2 ITF level finals contested.
I expect a balanced match between the two players, with long ball exchanges, in which the difference will be made at only a few points.
So I bet on a long match, lasting, being high chances that the game is decided in a decisive set.
Even if Yafan Wang starts with the first chance, Patricia Tig’s morale is high at the moment, his tennis is full of confidence.
