Re: AO 1R Bitchfight : Golovin  vs Smashnova - Who will win ?
Anna is one of the fittest players on tour.
She does have a tendency to retire from matches.
Looked like half of the top 10 did that last week at Syndey.
The surface is suited for Smashnova (it's her second best slam).
Golovon is prone to injuries on the rebound ace with her weaker ankles.
They'll need to be agressively taped.
Golovon will probably win but Smashnova will try to show the youngster something.
I'm sure she's tired of the disrespect the rest of the tour gives her, yet she's been playing longer than most of them.
