Caroline Garcia vs Dominika Cibulkova, Doha R2 Prediction

Qatar Total Open, Doha R2 Prediction
?? (7) Caroline Garcia vs ?? Dominika Cibulkova

I’m going to give the edge to Cibulkova. I was quite impressed with Cibulkova yesterday in her tight straight set win over Pavlyuchenkova. I think it was a real confidence boosting win for Cibulkova given how tight and tense the match was, especially in the opening set. Conversely, I’m not quite sure what to expect from Garcia this week, it has not been a good start to the year for Garcia, her most recent result was her most disappointing result of the year, a 3 set loss to Elena Rybakina in her opening match in St. Petersburg. I think the conditions in Doha favour Cibulkova, the courts are quite quick and ball shoots through the air, Cibulkova can rush Garcia and force a lot of errors. Having come through a tight match yesterday is a big advantage for Cibulkova compared to Garcia who is yet to play a match this after receiving a bye through the first round.
