Kanepi v Lepchenko
Under 21.5 games (Asian Handicap)
Estonian girl Kaia Kanepi is a real power of nature, she is just build this way to be like a bomber, she has one of the most strong arms in the WTA tour, she hits with more power than any other player in this tournament and she could reach the final with ease. Varvara Lepchenko is less talented, she works well on the court but not enough to cope with the skills of Kanepi. Kanepi loves hardcourts, although winning 2 titles on red clay, and just one on hard, she played other several WTA open finals on fast surfaces; Lepchenko is yet to win any WTA trophy. Kanepi did not concede a single set on the way, Lepchenko lost 1st set against Paszek. If she will play regular 1st service as she did in previous matches, then Kanepi will effectively destroy Lepchenko more defensive style. I expect short rallies, one-two winners for Kanepi and my call is an easy victory in straight sets because Kanepi will gain more self confidence after winning first set and she will play even better, producing more and more winners.
