?? Internationaux de Strasbourg, SF Prediction
?? (1) Ashleigh Barty vs. ?? (3) Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova
I’m going to give the slight edge to Pavlyuchenkova. It is Pavlyuchenkova who is the more accomplished player on a clay court and it is Pavlyuchenkova who has more experience at this stage of a tournament. Pavlyuchenkova may not have played well for the majority of the year but her form this week has been great, when she is in this type of form she is hard to stop, everything seems to be clicking for her right now. Barty’s backhand is a bit of an issues on this surface, a weakness that Pavlyuchenkova can target in this match-up.
