This tennis pick comes from the WTA Tour event in Florianopolis, where Austrian player Patricia Mayr plays Dinah Pfizenmaier in the first round. The 27-year-old Austrian Patricia Mayr is mainly known as a clay court specialist and reached her only WTA Tour level final on the red dirt on home soil in Bad Gastein in 2011. Ok, she made some decent results on hard courts in last months including wins over Cirstea, Zakopalova or Rybarikova and is very experienced player and fighter but she can find it very difficult in matches against talented shotmakers, players that have no problems to hit through Mayr's defence. And there is no doubt that the 22-year-old German Dinah Pfizenmaier belongs to this category of tennis players. She has very powerful game and has very bright future ahead of her, it will hardly surprise us if we see her in Top 50 later this year as her game is surely good enough for such a ranking. Pfizenmaier likes playing on all surfaces and her main weaknesses are lack of experience and consistency as she can self-destruct at any time during her matches. Mayer would probably deserve to be rated as a favourite of this matchup on red clay but we cannot agree with this statement on hard courts as Pfizenmaier has much better game for faster surfaces and should start beating players of Mayr's caliber without many problems. Current odds about 2.30 on Dinah Pfizenmaier look like a clear value bet for us and we recommend you to place a tennis bet on this young German.
