Govortsova vs Stephanie Foretz Gacon by Tennisguy
This is a round of 16 match from the Croissy-Beaubourg ITF (France indoors) between Olga Govortsova from Belarus and Stephanie Foretz Gacon from France.
I am going with the underdog here Stephanie Foretz Gacon because I believe she can surely produce a surprise today.
Govortsova has been playing well in the past two weeks and she did manage to win Sevilla ITF(clay court) last week. That being said she is a very inconsistent player and I don't think she is that good in indoor either. Also the h2h between her and Foretz Gacon is in favor of the french lady who leads at 2-1. Actually Foretz Gacon managed to defeat Govortsova this year in the qualif. rounds of the Australian Open 7-6(5), 6-3.
Foretz Gacon has a semifinal at this tournament in 2013 and I think she can manage a good result this year as well. She didn't have the best first round match here against Arcangioli but she did manage to win it 6-3, 4-6, 7-6(4). Arcangioli did have a pretty decent year so far so I think the win is better than it might seem at first.
I think that Govortsova is not really comfortable with Foretz Gacon playing style and given that there is a slight possibility that she will be tired also I have to go with the value and the home crowd favorite here .
