Clara Tauson vs Alize Cornet – Match Predictions
Clara Tauson to Win
Cornet won their last encounter in Cleveland but will admit it was a tough battle between the two. The Frenchwoman does not have the same confidence as she comes into this duel on the back of three successive defeats on clay courts. On the other hand, Tauson ha amassed seven wins and two losses in her last nine matches on the red surface. Based on this, we are backing on the 20-year-old Danish ace to triumph in this meeting.
Over 18.5 Games
While Cornet has experience on her side, Tauson will admit she lacks the ability to close out matches, especially against players of similar pedigree. Her last match saw her require 17 games to get past Celine Naef, while the last duel between Cornet and Tauson saw 22 games to find a victor. As they meet, we do not expect to see a blowout and the match should see more than 18.5 games to find a result.
Clara Tauson vs Alize Cornet Preview
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Hopman Cup.
Wimbledon was not high on Tauson’s priority list and the Danish ace travelled to the All England Club without any preparation on the surface. She made it past the first two rounds of qualifiers but came up short in the final after a close 2-1 defeat to Viktoria Hruncakova. She now returns her attention to clay courts, her favoured surface as evidenced by her journey to the third round after coming through the qualifiers.
While Touson struggled on grass, Cronet get past the first round in the main draw before heading into the brick wall of Elena Rybakina. She will be dreading her return to the red surface, where she has struggled this season. She has a 7-5 losing record on the surface, with her last three matches ending in defeat on clay court. At 33, Cornet does not command the same power and will have to rely on her experience to get past Tauson.
