🇩🇪🏁 Porsche Tennis GP, Stuttgart R1 Prediction
🇱🇻 (7) Anastasija Sevastova vs. 🇱🇻 Jelena Ostapenko
Anastasija Sevastova and Jelena Ostapenko will both been for victory as the two biggest names in Latvian tennis go head-to-head at the opening round stage of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart. Sevastova and Ostapenko have both consistently struggled in 2019 for various reasons and are in need of a big win to turn things around, this is the type of match that can provide a spark.
I expect Sevastova to be too solid for Ostapenko here. Ostapenko arrives in Stuttgart on the back of a poor weekend at the Fed Cup where she lost both her singles rubbers to Andrea Petkovic and Mona Barthel. Ostapenko was playing on a hard court in that Fed Cup tie so it will be a tough transition to play in Stuttgart on clay. Sevastova is a tricky opponent at the best of times and will make life very tough for Ostapenko. Expect the versatility of Sevastova to prevail here.
