Maria Sharapova is a Russian 30-year-old player that occupies the 146th position in the WTA Rankings.
Maria Sharapova: Sharapova is a tennis player that doesn’t need any kind of presentation.
She is a very strong player, extremely aggressive, that plays with a lot of intensity.
She also has one of the best serve returns and a style that is extremely efficient on fast surfaces.
Sharapova went through the worst stage of her career due to the “Doping” case.
She dropped a lot of positions in the WTA Rankings but now she has returned to be the former Sharapova and has just beaten World’s No.2 Simona Halep in 3 sets, in a great quality match, where the Russian ended up being superior.
In the end, she wasn’t able to contain her emotions and the tears for the first big win after her return.
Timea Babos: Babos is a Hungarian 24-year-old that currently sits in the 59th place of the WTA Rankings.
This Hungarian is a player that competes in every surface. She likes to play from the baseline, but she likes to impose speed, especially with her forehand.
At the net, she volleys pretty well and sometimes she gets to the net to finish the point, since she is an expert on Doubles. Babos hasn’t been able to achieve great results on this variant lately.
Here in the US Open she got through the 1st round beating the Swiss Golubic 7-5 5-7 7-5 on a very tough match, that could have gone either way.
Head-to-head: These two players never met before.
Maria Sharapova vs Timea Babos Betting Tip and Prediction:
This will be the first clash between these players and I expect Sharapova to sweep the Hungarian player without much trouble.
I don’t see any other result than a straight sets win for the Russian, who will dominate from the baseline with her forehand and Timea Babos won’t be able to handle the Russian’s power.
I believe that Babos will try to vary her game, like going to the net, but Sharapova is very aggressive and will make a lot of winners.
The Russian has beaten Simona Halep but she never lowers her guard and eases up. Sharapova has won, she is galvanized and I believe she will win again, this time in straight sets.
