WTA Tenerife Day 4 Predictions Including Danka Kovinic vs Camila Giorgi

Camila Giorgi Bronx Open

The remaining second-round clashes will be contested on Day 4 of the 2021 WTA Tenerife Ladies Open. Danish youngster Clara Tauson will try to keep up her six-match winning streak, while Camila Giorgi is seeking her first good event since Montreal. Who do you think will make the quarterfinals?

WTA Tenerife Day 4 Predictions

Greet Minnen vs Arantxa Rus

Head-to-head: Minnen 2-1

Greet Minnen made a significant ranking leap this season, making her way to all the four Grand Slam events (three times as a qualifier, once as a lucky loser). The Belgian’s season needs that icing on the cake, which could be provided by a deep run here. She already owns a hard-court win over Arantxa Rus from earlier in the season, although the indoor conditions at Lyon were quite a bit faster than here. Still, Minnen should have a great chance to repeat her dismissal of the Dutchwoman as almost all of Rus’s success this year came in clay ITF events.

Clara Tauson vs Saisai Zheng

Head-to-head: First meeting

Clara Tauson was 2-5 down in the deciding tie-break to Heather Watson in her opening round, but the Danish wunderkind somehow survived. This should be a slightly easier matchup for the 18-year-old, who hasn’t played since taking her 2nd WTA title at Luxembourg. Saisai Zheng hasn’t really been a threat in tour-level events this year and probably won’t have enough to keep up with Tauson’s very diverse skillset.

Mayar Sherif vs Camila Osorio

Head-to-head: Sherif 1-0

Camila Osorio’s hard court results don’t really match her clay-court ones, but the Colombian did very well to eliminate Elina Svitolina in a two-day clash here. The same goes for Mayar Sherif, who also enjoyed most of her success on the dirt and only had a couple of good ITF runs on hard. The Egyptian crushed her opponent at Roland Garros last year but with two improving talents this match might look completely different 12 months later. This one is a very tough call but in general, Sherif’s assets are probably a tad easier to utilize on hard courts.

Camila Giorgi vs Danka Kovinic

Head-to-head: First meeting

After taking the biggest title of her career in Montreal, Camila Giorgi went on to lose her next four matches without taking a set. It actually represents the inconsistency of her game over the years quite nicely. The Italian should have this match on her racket, especially as Danka Kovinic has been in indifferent form across the past few months. The hyper-aggressive playstyle has its downsides though and Giorgi will need to cut down on her unforced errors compared to the first-round match against Aliona Bolsova Zadoinov.
Prediction: Giorgi in 2
