Roland Garros, R1 Prediction
?? (32) Alize Cornet vs. ?? Sara Errani
I’m going to give the slight edge to Errani here. I think this is a match-up that has always slightly favoured the Italian despite a couple of losses in their most recent matches. Errani and Cornet are both counter-punchers, both have great touch and great movement. Cornet probably has more firepower but Errani is the better grinder and is mentally tougher. The two later points give Errani the edge in this match-up, especially on a clay court and on the big stage.
