Rybakina E. - Samsonova L.
As part of the first round of the WTA tournament in Tokyo, we are expecting a duel between Elena Rybakina and Ludmila Samsonova.
Rybakina had a successful last week, she reached the final of the tournament in Portoroz, where she was defeated by Siniakova in a match that everyone expected her to win. I believe that she was quite disappointed after that match and that her self-confidence fell, and with all that she is certainly also tired, so the question is how prepared is she for this match,
Samson s game has been fantastic for quite some time, she won 2 tournaments on the American tour, Washington and Cleveland, and she welcomes this match in excellent form.
Samsonova is my big favorite here, she is in a fantastic rhythm, full of self-confidence while she had more time to rest, so I expect her to be in the lead during the entire match.
