?? 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.
