Big first round match in Hobart. It's a shame that these players meet so early :sad:
who will win ?
Agnieszka won their only meeting in Biella 2007 on clay. Aga won 6-2/3-6/7-6.

This is Aga first tournament of the year while Flavia already played Gold Coast. She reached the 2nd round there losing to Safina in 3 tight sets.
So Flavia has more match rythm.
That's why i think Flavia will win it in 2 sets!

There are two options:
1) Flavia wins like 75 64
2) Aga wins like 62 61

I'd have to lean towards Penetta, tough first round draw for Aga. Tough to predict. Regardless, this is going to be Aga's year.:devil:

This is insane. :( It could've been easily a final, especially in a tier IV and it's just an opening round. Harsh. :(
On HCs I'd say Flavia has an edge.

The 1st match of the year is always tough, especially against a player who has already had a few matches under her belt and demostrated good form. For that reason I'd give Flavia a 55/45 chance in this match but win or lose I expect Aga to have a great season finishing near the top 10. Flavia looks like she should have a good year as well.
