Gavrilova vs Mertens

I see nice chance here for Elise Mertens to reach R16. The 22 year old girl from Belgium is in outstanding form and from my point of view Daria Gavrilova is no match for her.

I mean, Gavrilova is solid level (No.25, Mertens is 16th) but at this point and first of all on this surace, there is hige mismatch in favor of Mertens.

Unlike Gavrilova who doesn't perfer clay, for Mertens this is great surface. Mertens has 13-1 on clay in 2018 and that include two WTA titles, in Lugano and in Rabat. I am sure Mertens would go far also in Madrid if she wasn't unlucky with the draw and got Simona Halep as already second round opponent.

Furthermore, Gavrilova is not looking too good in my eyes. Both rounds so far she had to play very long matches and that includes also meeting with not fit and injured Cirstea.

H2H is 3-1 Mertens including last season win here in Paris. Back then it was in three sets but now I expect much easier win for Mertens.

Cirstea keeps on winning against the odds in doubles.
What injury does she have?

Just before RG Cirstea retired against Riske. Oficially it was leg injury but she was not able to serv how I saw. Thats why Gavrilova against Cirstea was best bet of the opening round, though odds dropped a lot till the match. In any case, Gavrilova won against Cirstea whose fitnes was questionable but far from easy match that was. So basically after that I was just waiting the right opponent to go against Gavrilova.
