Astra Sharma has had a very poor year so far, and especially disappointing after she had some promising results last year when she won her first ever WTA title in Charleston (American Clay). Her record so far this year is 12-20, with only four wins and 12 losses on hards. Her game simply isn’t suited to these conditions, and we’ve seen her play well on her favourite surface, clay. Despite this, she’s even struggled on clay this year, with her best results being in the QF’s.
Ponchet on the other hand enjoys the hard courts, and has had an okay season. She’s won an ITF last month in Spain, and has reached a couple of finals and semi finals this year too. Although she’s never won a match at the US Open, trying three times in quail’s and losing all three, this time she has a huge chance of a win. Her game is more suited than Astra Sharma, and will be confident in reaching the second round here for the first time in her career.
The pair have never faced each other.
As I said previously, Jessica Ponchet has had some good results this year on hard courts and Astra Sharma is the complete opposite. Happy to take Ponchet’s money line here.
