Muguruza vs Stosur (By: Khum)
Garbine Muguruza - Samantha Stosur
First match on Philippe Chatrier arena, 11 AM.
That means at most 20 Celsius in the air.
This is important here for when the weather is not very warm the ball is bouncing less and the points are shorter, with lesss chances for the returning player to be effective.
And these two have some of the best serves in WTA. That's why I see here a tight matchup.
I've already bet over this number on Muguruza against Kuznetsova and on Stosur vs Pavly and they have covered it by a single unit. And they have covered it before twice in 3 h2h encounters.
In the 2016 title run of the Spaniard she made a quicker work on Sam Stosur, yet Muguruza is a player depending significantly on her mood, and I don't see her right now in the same clutch mood as two years ago.
In the clash between two very effective serving players, one a former champion here and one a former finalist, I see a match longer than 20 games.
Let's go green!
