???? Roland Garros, R1 Prediction
?? (4) Kiki Bertens vs. ?? Pauline Parmentier
Kiki Bertens begins her Roland Garros campaign against Pauline Parmentier, an opponent she has struggled against in the past. Parmentier has won all 3 of the previous matches between the pair and will have the support of the vocal Parisian crowd by her side.
Nevertheless, Bertens should be too strong for Parmentier here. Bertens is the form player on tour on the red dirt and is at the peak of her powers at the moment. Bertens does everything better than Parmentier and shouldn’t have too many issues here. Bertens serves better, returns better, is stronger from the baseline, better defensively and has a more versatile game. Bertens is a class above.
