Agnieszka Radwanska vs Eugenie Bouchard, New Haven R2 Preview

Connecticut Open, ??? New Haven preview + prediction
R2: (1) ?? Agnieszka Radwanska vs (wc) ?? Eugenie Bouchard

Agnieszka Radwanska and Eugenie Bouchard will open the night session on Tuesday at the Connecticut Open. Radwanska is the defending champion in New Haven this week and will desperately want to replicate the form that saw her win the title in 2016 as she looks to gain much needed momentum heading into the final Grand slam of the year next week. Radwanska has a perfect record over Bouchard, the Pole has won all three of their previous matches, all in straight sets. Can Bouchard turn things around here?

Radwanska is having one of her worst seasons in quite some time, injuries and illness have been contributing factors. It seems Radwanska is now the fittest she has been all year and perhaps here fortunes will change in the coming weeks. Radwanska’s first opponent in New Haven will be Eugenie Bouchard, the Canadian advanced to the second round in New Haven thanks to a comfortable 6-1 6-3 win over Lauren Davis.

Radwanska has been dominant over Bouchard in the past. Radwanska has won all of their previous matches in straight sets. Most recently Radwanska won 6-3 6-3 in Eastbourne last year and won their only previous match on a hard court 6-4 6-2 at the Australian Open last year.

This is clearly a great match-up for Radwanska and I expect her to continue her dominance over Bouchard in New Haven. Bouchard lacks the consistency and the composure to consistently trouble Radwanska. The defending champion enjoys the New Haven conditions and should once again be too classy for Bouchard. Radwanska has too much variety and tactical awareness to her game for Bouchard to handle.
