Lesia Tsurenko vs Leylah Fernandez – Match Predictions
As Lesia Tsurenko battles former US Open finalist Leylah Fernandez for a place in the second round of the Miami Open, these are our predictions and tips for this match
Lesia Tsurenko to Win
We have been impressed by Lesia Tsurenko’s performance in recent weeks. Despite being a qualifier, she reached the round of 32 at the just-concluded BNP Paribas Open, but was forced to withdraw due to an abdominal injury. The Ukrainian bounced back from her injury in style, dispatching her opponents in straight sets in the qualifying rounds of this tournament.
Excluding walkovers, Lesia Tsurenko is currently on a six match winning run; and she surrendered just one set in her last four matches. Considering Leylah Fernandez isn’t exactly enjoying her best form at the moment, we are backing the Ukrainian to extend her winning streak today.
Over 21.5 Total Games
Although we believe that Lesia Tsurenko will advance to the next round at the expense of Leylah Fernandez, we don’t think she’ll do it in straight sets. It’s important to point out that Leylah Fernandez won at least one set in eight of her last 10 singles matches; and the only players who defeated her in straight sets are Iga Swiatek and Karolina Pliskova. Compared to these players, Lesia Tsurenko should be a relatively easier opponent. We believe that both players will win at least one set, and this match will go over 21.5 games.
Lesia Tsurenko vs Leylah Fernandez Preview
How have these players fared in recent weeks? Let’s take a look.
Lesia Tsurenko had to go through the qualifying rounds in order to reach the main draw of this tournament. She didn’t have too much trouble knocking out Coco Vandeweghe and Harriet Dart in straight sets. As it stands, the Ukrainian won the last six singles matches she played; she’ll set her sights on another victory as she takes on former US Open finalist Leylah Fernandez.
Unlike her opponent, Leylah Annie Fernandez didn’t need to go through the qualifying rounds. However, she has struggled to find her footing recently, losing three of her last five singles matches. The 20 year old will hope to improve her poor form with a win, and she’ll fancy her chances against Lesia Tsurenko.
