Tennis | US Open 2023 | Jodie Burrage makes her main draw debut against Anna Blinkova
Despite the gap between them in the rankings, there is little to separate Jodie Burrage and Anna Blinkova on the hard courts this year.
Playing Styles & Prediction
Much like her compatriot, Burrage is looking to replicate a glorious summer on the grass, losing her maiden WTA final to Katie Boulter in Nottingham. She has had a fair bit of success at the ITF level, and reached the Stanford quarter-final.
Despite a string start to the year in Hobart, Blinkova has not made much of an impact on the US hard courts this year, and apart from being slightly stronger than Burrage in getting herself out of tricky situations when facing break points, she has not got much over her lower ranked rival.
Burrage’s strength is in her backhand, and she has a capable serve, and she will be up against the aggressive play of Blinkova, whose doubles prowess means she will want to come into the net a lot more.
This is winnable for Burrage, but she might have to take Blinkova the distance.
