WTA Parma 2021: Jasmine Paolini vs Amanda Anisimova- Preview, Head to Head and Prediction 2

Talking about the form coming into the tournament, Paolini bowed out in the qualifiers itself at the Madrid Open, the last major tournament the 25-year old Italian played.

On the other hand, Anisimova made good start before eventually going down to Elina Svitolina in the second round of the Italian Open. However, the 19-year old American gave a tough fight to Svitolina and even took out the opening set before losing 6-2, 3-6, 4-6.

Jasmine Paolini vs Amanda Anisimova: Prediction

Amanda Anisimova

It should be a straightforward match for Anisimova and she should win it without a fuss. However, Paolini is a localite and the support of the home crowd could very well turn out to be the band for Anisimova. Having said that, it still should not be enough to stop the American from marching towards the next round.

Match Prediction: Amanda Anisimova defeats Jasmine Paolini comprehensively in straight sets.
