Brengle – Tsurenko: who is better prepared for the start in New York?
The American tennis player won two head-to-head matches between Brengl and Tsurenko. On August 31 in New York, the rivals will play their third match. Who will be able to get into the second round? – you can find out from our forecast.
Madison Brengle’s 2020 season is very unstable. After the unsuccessful January tournaments in Australia, the American moved to her homeland and won the title in Newport Beach. There was a good ITF tournament with access to the semifinals even before quarantine.
Before resuming the tour, Brengle had four victorious exhibition matches and was ready to compete in official tournaments. However, in Lexington and New York, Madison faced tough opponents in the opening matches. Failed to beat Arina Sobolenko (1-6, 7-6, 2-6) and Catherine Bellis (3-6, 6-7).
Brengle rarely leaves the court without a fight. On hard, the tennis player has enough playing practice.
From the very beginning of the 2020 season, Lesya Tsurenko did not manage to win at more or less prestigious WTA tournaments. There was not enough game practice then. Having moved to less prestigious tournaments, Lesya marked the final in Kyro and the semifinals at the Challenger in Indian Wells.
After the season resumed, Tsurenko played the tournament on clay. In a difficult struggle, she overcame three qualifying rounds, won in the first round of the main draw against Alexandrova (6-2, 6-4). However, further due to health problems, the Ukrainian tennis player withdrew from the competition. On hard, after the resumption of the season, the representative of Ukraine did not play a single match.
Brengle won two personal meetings
Tsurenko won only one match in the main draw of WTA tournaments this season
Brengle, after leaving quarantine, spent six matches on hard, in which she won four wins
Tsurenko starred at her last tournament in Prague, but did not play on hard after the season resumed. Brengle lost the last two matches, but managed to impose a fight between Sobolenko and Bellis. Also, the American tennis player has an advantage in personal meetings. We believe that in the line of bookmakers there is some overestimation of Tsurenko’s capabilities and we offer a forecast for the victory of the underdog.
Our prediction is that Brengle will win for a coefficient of 2.13 at BC Betcity.
