Potapova vs Cornet: prediction for the WTA Luxembourg match
2021 season is a difficult one for Anastasia Potapova. She won only 16 matches out of 34. So far Russian player is holding on to her position in Top-100, she is currently 89th WTA player. But she can leave the Top-100 in case if she will fail the ending of the season.
Potapova is approaching the start of Luxembourg tournament after two consecutive defeats. In Chicago she was beaten by Gleason in the first qualifying round (1:6, 6:2, 3:6). In the first round of US Open she was eliminated by Pegula (2:6, 2:6).
Since the start of the year Alize Cornet is in the search of the game and her results are far from perfect. French player achieved her first success in the season during June, when she reached the semi-final of grass tournament in Berlin. After that she had a successful hard tournament in Chicago, where she reached the final. In the decisive match Cornet was beaten by Elina Svitolina (5:7, 4:6).
Cornet had an unsuccessful US Open. In the first round she was beaten by Ons Jabeur (5:7, 5:7). An experienced Frenchwoman didn't play at Luxembourg since 2014, where she was eliminated by Mertens in the second round.
In four out of six most recent matches of Cornet more than ten games were played in the first set
In three out of six most recent matches of Potapova tiebreaks were played
In an upcoming match Cornet will have an advantage on experience. But Cornet lacks consistency, so she is unable to record victories with crushung scores. We think that Potapova will be able to avoid a beating.
