???? Roland Garros, R2 Prediction
?? (26) Johanna Konta vs. ?? (wc) Lauren Davis
Johanna Konta will be out to continue her recent run of good form when she comes up against Lauren Davis at the second round stage of Roland Garros on Wednesday. This is a big opportunity for both Konta and Davis, neither have ever reached the third round in Paris, both entered the tournament having lost 4 consecutive opening round matches at the event. Who will step up and break new ground on the Parisian clay?
I’m going to side with Konta there. Konta is a dangerous opponent when she is confident and that is certainly the case right now given her recent success on clay. Davis is also in good form but her wins have come at the ITF level, this is a big step up in opponent for the American. Konta and Davis actually play quite similarly, both play best when serving well and dictating with their forehands. Konta’s serve is far more consistent and her backhand is more steady. Konta should have the edge in what will likely be a reasonably close match.
