WTA Hiroshima Open Semifinal Predictions

Nao Hibino vs Mihaela Buzarnescu

Head-to-head: First meeting

Both players have played an incredibly high level of tennis to reach the semifinals here. Buzarnescu impressively defeated the third seed, Alison van Uytvanck, in straight sets in the quarterfinals. Whereas Hibino upset the defending champion and the top seed, Su-Wei Hsieh, also in straight sets.

It will be a close match. But Buzarnescu is yet to drop a set all week and this tournament looks like the one that could turn her season around. After the struggles in her career, she definitely needs it.

  1. Well spotted Eric. You obviously know Kudermetova better than us. I, for one, thought she would comfortably beat Doi, but the Japanese had her measure all the way and made it look easy.
    Another golden opportunity missed by Kudermetova and she’s not going to get to a final, if she cannot hold herself together.
