Azarenka vs Schiavone by 20legend
Azarenka has not met any extreme opponents yet, but she still lost a set to the French girl Cornet which was very surprising. Cornet took the first set, before Azarenka woke up and took the two next ones.
Shciavone has plaeyd better and better in this tournament and she had totally control when she beat Bartoli in her last match. Schiavone enjoys the clay in Paris a lot and she delivers some of her best tennis here.
Head to Head: Azarenka leads by 2-1 and both of Azarenka's victories have been easy at clay, but these matches were played back in 2007 and 2008.
Azarenka is the real favourite her, but I am totally convinced that Schiavone will win at least one set in this match, as she has improved from match one, and show good form. Azarenka dropped the first set to Cornet, and I think that Schiavone would give Azarenka even more resistance here. She has to play more offensive and aggressive to get at least a set here, but some of Schiavone’s strengths is to play with variation and smartness. She has impressed in Paris earlier, and I definatly think she can again. I think Azarenka could win, but I am convinced that Schiavone would get at least one set as mentioned earlier. Therefore I pick Schiavone + 1,5 sets.
