S. Williams vs Barty
Serena Williams - Ashleigh Barty
Serena has stunned the tennis world with her catsuit appearance in the Roland Garros opener.
Matchwise she looked slow and Krystina Pliskova could get more from that match with a better strategical intelligence.
I expect today a better chance for Ash Barty, which is actually favored by the books.
She doesn't have clay as favourite surface, yet she has played well this spring, especially against the big names, losing 5-6, 6-3, 2-6 to Sharapova and 2:6, 6:4, 4:6 against Wozniacki.
The only previous encounter between these two was a 6:2, 6:1 Serena win back in 2014, but neither of them is the same player they were 4 years ago. Barty has risen gamewise and rankingwise while Serena is just trying to come back after giving birth to little Olympia.
I see a hard fight here between one who can less than she knows and one who has a chance for a big win for her personal record.
Let's go green!
