Porsche Tennis GP, Stuttgart R2 Prediction
?? (6) Caroline Garcia vs. ?? (Q) Marta Kostyuk
I suspect Garcia will prove to be a class above Kostyuk here. There are over 100 ranking places between these two and huge gulf in experience. Whilst Kostyuk is impressive for her age, I highly doubt she will have the consistency or the composure to defeat an opponent of Garcia’s level. Garcia’s aggressive game will put a lot of pressure on Kostyuk, especially her vulnerable second serve. Eventually I suspect the youngster will crack. Garcia heads into this match full of momentum after her win over Sharapova in the previous round, expect her to get the job don here.
