Match: Johanna Konta vs. Tsvetana Pironkova Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Wednesday, 31 August, 2016
Johanna Konta is facing Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova in the 2nd round of US Open.
They both won easily their 1st round games respectively against Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Virginie Razzano. Konta is one of the players making biggest progress in the WTA. The British player is having the time of her life. She won her first WTA title only 6 weeks ago in Stanford, defeating Venus Williams in the final. Pironkova made her best performance this year at Roland Garros where she reached the quarter-finals, losing to Samantha Stosur.
The Bulgarian lacks consistency but she can definitely upset almost every top player so she shouldn’t be underestimated by Konta. The winner of this match will probably play against Belinda Bencic in the next round and possibly against Muguruza in the 4th round. This section of the draw is one of the toughest. This is the first meeting between Konta and Pironkova. I think that the player in better form Johanna Konta will win this match in 3 sets.
