Garcia vs Mladenovic (By: StarLion)
WTA Zhengzhou: Caroline Garcia (31) vs Kristina Mladenovic (49)
Once a World Number 4, Caroline Garcia is struggling to return to the WTA summit. But she seems to have been without injuries for a while now and is looking for some big wins to get back where she belongs.
She beat a resurgent Tereza Martincová 6-4, 4-6, 7-5 in a 2 & 1/2 hour match. But the fight Garcia showed was impressive and just depicts how badly she wants to be winning. Martincová lost in spite of not doing much wrong.
Naomi Osaka had achieved her Grand Slams under Sascha Bajin but later admitted she wasn't happy with his coaching style and parted ways. Sascha Bajin was then hired by Mladenovic and this year has been a decent year for the French player although the last few weeks weren't her best of the year. Expecting her to have a strong Asian swing.
Kristina Mladenovic dispatched a mediocre Duan Yingying 6-2, 6-3 in the first round. H2H with Garcia: 1-1
It will be a good contest between the two. I'm expecting this to be a 3 setter and really can't predict a winner. Moreover, both need it badly, so it can turn to be another 2 hour + match. The pick should go green with a long 2 setter too.
