This match has the making of experience being the difference, as Emma Raducanu looks to keep her impressive run of form going against Sara Sorribes Tormo.
Whilst the run to this point, as well as her last couple of weeks in the lead up to the main draw of the tournament has been impressive by Raducanu, I think this step up in terms of opposition quality, the style of play, and experience level at the other end of the net is going to be an issue today. Cast an eye over the players Raducanu has beaten on this run, and I dare say none of those players would come close to defeating Sorribes Tormo in her current form.
Having the power to hit through Sorribes Tormo is the easiest way to beat her, without needing to turn things into a grind with heavy use of spin and angles. Outside of Pliskova and Kontaveit lately, playing Sorribes Tormo has led to players having a pretty torrid time. The win over Karolina Muchova in round 1 was one of the matches of the day, and she looks to be well suited here by the conditions, as shown with her win over Hsieh in round 2.
Unless Raducanu is able to redline for extensive periods, I’m struggling to see her taking the victory here. Just a small play, however there looks to be some value in the price on Sorribes Tormo for a unit.
