??? US OPEN: R1 Prediction
?? (6) Caroline Garcia vs. ?? Johanna Konta
I’m going to side with Garcia in this tough opening round match. Garcia has been playing good tennis of late and generally has been playing at a higher level than Konta over the last few months. The last couple of matches between the pair where very tight, there is little to separate these two. Both have big games, big serves, big returns, big groundstrokes. What gives Garcia the edge in my opinion is her far greater versatility, Garcia has better touch and is far more capable at the net. If Garcia executes her game, she should be too strong for the British number 1.
