Tsurenko vs Sasnovich: prediction for the WTA Luxembourg match
We offer a prediction for the WTA Luxembourg match between Tsurenko and Sasnovich on September 14. Lesia Tsurenko is 2:1 ahead on head-to-head matches, but Aliaksandra Sasnovich recorded her only victory in the current season. Will Belarusian player level the score?
In this season Lesia Tsurenko has a decent record of performances on tour - 16 victories and 11 defeats. But in the main draw of WTA tournaments she recorded only one victory. She beat Ruse (6:3, 6:3) at Cluj-Napoca. She secured all other victories in qualifications of various tournaments.
Ukrainian player also played two qualifying matches at Luxembourg. She recorded difficult victories over Hozumi (6:3, 3:6, 6:2) and Bucsa (6:3, 2:6, 6:4).
In comparision with her opponent Aliaksandra Sasnovich recorded more victories in WTA tournaments, but we can't say that she is successful in this season. Since the start of the year Belarusian player recorded 19 victories in 36 matches.
We should note that Sasnovich put up a decent performance in North American hard tournaments. She managed to qualify for Cincinnati tournament. She also reached the quarter-final at Cleveland. At US Open Sasnovich was eliminated by Elena Rybakina in the first round (2:6, 3:6).
In two out of three most recent head-to-head matches no more than nine games were played in the first set
In three most recent matches of Tsurenko three sets were played
In the beginning of the year Sasnovich recorded a victory over Tsurenko on hard court at Melbourne in three sets. After that Sasnovich performed even more successfully, so she deserved a status of the favourite in Luxembourg. Belarusian player is playing well against opponents, who are not so good on the serve, Lesia is one of them. We think that Sasnovich will level the score on head-to-head matches.
Our prediction - Sasnovich to win

Inconsistent performance on the serve by Tsurenko and Sasnovich leads to long matches. We are expecting the same scenario as in the previous head-to-head fixture. Back then, opponents played three sets.
