Johanna Konta vs Elise Mertens, Miami R3 Prediction

Miami Open, ????? R3 Prediction
?? (11) Johanna Konta vs. ?? (22) Elise Mertens

I’m going to go for the upset here, I think Mertens can beat Konta in what will be the first career meeting between the pair. Both have not been in great form over the last month but it is Mertens who has generally played the better tennis in 2018. Konta is low in confidence right now and Mertens will be a tough opponent to get by when Konta is not playing at her best. Mertens is a great defender which can cause Konta problems, importantly Mertens also has the firepower to dictate enough to control her destiny.

Prediction: Elise Mertens to defeat Johanna Konta in 3 sets
