Occupation of position no. 43 in the WTA hierarchy, the Ukrainian player is looking for the shape, as his game has been oscillating towards the end of last season.
However, at this beginning of the year, the hard playing area seems to be taking advantage of it, as it has yielded a single game of 5 games.
In 2017 he played a semifinal here, but certainly this time he is more motivated and wants to join the finals.
Romanca has made a huge step in his career, and his evolution is remarkable, if we think that last year during the same period was outside the top 500 WTA. The presence in the Hobart semifinals confirms that Mihaela is a playable player.
With the semifinals, he has secured the top 50 WTA spot next week.
He definitely dominated his opponent in the previous match in the second set, although the start of the match was weaker for our player.
She has a lot of confidence in this match, which is also the second semifinals of her professional career, and she wishes to make a huge difference in the final act of the competition.
The semifinal of the Hobart tournament also marks the first direct meeting between the two protagonists.
My tip for Lesya Tsurenko – Mihaela Buzarnescu
Although Buzarnescu won in two sets in the previous round, dominating his opponent in the second set, he still used physically enough and the fact that he needed 90 minutes of physical work to win might say the word in his semifinals.
Tsurenko served very well and put his opponents in this tour under constant pressure, striking the ball precisely and effectively. The long exchanges will favor the Ukrainian player and will surely dictate the pace of the match in this respect.
