Su-Wei Hsieh v Jana Cepelova – WTA Malaysia Kuala Lumpur
29.2.2016, Malaysia, 06:00 GMT+0
Its seems that Su-Wei Hsieh really likes this tournament. When at her best, ranked number 25, she managed to win this tournament without any real problems. Year later she got into the semi-finals and again in 2013 she made it into the quarter-finals. She is currently having an okey season, in Kaohsiung she won against Okuno, Minella and Kulichkova, but she was later eliminated by Doi in the semi-finals. She is currently ranked number 65 on the WTA rankings.
Today her opponent will be the 22 year old Slovakian Jana Cepelova. She is currently ranked 127 in the world, and that is down from 54 in 2014. The reason for that drop is because she missed nine weeks at the beginning of the last year’s season. Nevertheless, Cepelova has already managed to defeat the likes of Gasparyan, Mattek-Sands and Riske this season, so she is probably going into the right direction this season.
If we take into consideration, that Hsieh is certainly at her best when playing on Asian tournaments(in 2015, she won Shenzhen, Nanning and Nanjing ), the odds on her are way too high.
Prediction: Su-Wei Hsieh to win match
