Caroline Garcia vs. Magdalena Rybarikova, Montreal R2 Prediction

?? Rogers Cup, Montreal R2 Prediction
?? (6) Caroline Garcia vs. ?? Magdalena Rybarikova

I’m going to side with Garcia in this second round match-up in Montreal. Clearly there is risk involved in siding with the Frenchwoman given this is Garcia’s first match in over a month and her first match on a hard court in over 3 months. However, Garcia has proven that she is much more mature and reliable these days and she should have too much game for Rybarikova. I think this is a good match-up for Garcia because her strengths take away the strengths of Rybarikova. Garcia has a great return of serve which will put pressure on Rybarikova and her ability to move up the court and take time away from Rybarikova makes this a good match-up for the Frenchwoman.

Prediction: Caroline Garcia to defeat Magdalena Rybarikova in 3 sets
