Pornpawee Chochuwong vs Nozomi Okuhara: Match Prediction
Chochuwong is brimming with confidence, is physically fit and playing really good shots. Okuhara has just shown superior physical fitness and mental strength with her comeback in the decider against Ratchanok in the semi-final match. The final match can be expected to be filled with pulsating rallies and beautiful shots. Okuhara is strong in defence and is consistent.
Pornpawee has some really good attack, moves well, plays with pace. Okuhara’s experience can come in handy in tacking a tricky Thai player. Okuhara needs to exploit Chochuwong’s weakness and control rallies to create openings for herself.
Prediction: Nozomi Okuhara wins in close games.
