Internationaux de Strasbourg, R2 Prediction
?? (2) Daria Gavrilova vs. ?? Samantha Stosur
I’m going to side with Gavrilova here. Whilst both Gavrilova and Stosur have generally been disappointing in 2018, it is Gavrilova who is playing the better tennis in recent times. Gavrilova arrives in Strasbourg on the back of a good week in Rome where she had a big win over Muguruza and will expect to get the better of Stosur here. Stosur has had very few noteworthy wins in 2018 and based on her general form in 2018 will lose in this match-up for often than not. Expect a close match but Gavrilova’s greater consistency and variety to see her through.
