Linda Noskova vs Shelby Rogers – Match Predictions

Noskova is seen as one of the future stars in women’s tennis and she may be the breakout player in Rome. Shelby Rogers is an experienced player and we will see if the experience will play a roll in this match.

Shelby Rogers to win

Rogers is having a decent season so far and even though she did not make some significant result in the past weeks on clay, she played really well and have a reason to hope for a good performance in Rome. The American is in excellent physical form and has won the majority of the matches that went into the third set this season. She knows how to stay long in the points and will find a way to go past the teenager in the opening round.

Under 21.5 games

Noskova lost the only clay court match this season and will have a tough time on her debut in Rome. Playing at this level is new to her and Rogers will take advantage of it and finish the job quickly in a match with less than 21.5 games.
