Laura Robson vs Hantuchova by 20legend
Even if clay is not her best surface, she produced some decent results ahead of Roland Garros as she beat both Radwanska (2-1) in Madrid, and Venus Williams (2-1) in Rome. In Roland Garros, Robson lost against Wozniacki (2-0) and she had no chance.
Daniela Hantuchova is unseeded in this tournamnet and ranked 60. She got a major part of the 2012 season destroyed by injuries, which is the reason why she is ranked that high. She did some decent results as well in Madrid were she beat both Stephens (0-2) and Kvitova (1-2), before loosing against Kanepi in round 3. She enjoyed a nice win in the first round against Dasey Dellacqua (2-0) after two straight sets (6-1, 7-6), and she was not broken in this match that lasted 1 hour 24 minutes.
Head-to-Head: Daniela Hantuchova leads 0-2 as she has beaten Robson both on grass (2009) and hardcourt (February 2013). The victory at grass in 2009 was Robson dubut in Wimbeldon main draw, were Robson also took a set.
Laura Robson is the favorite here, while Hantuchova has struggled with injury last season. Robson also plays at home, so she will be backed up by the fans throughout this game. However, Hantuchova has played good matches against the brithish girl. Even if Hantuchova is better on hardcourt, she still had a match already in this tournament, so she will be prepared for this match. I think it will be a close game and I think this match will end up with three sets in total.
