Johanna Konta vs. Yulia Putintseva, Roland Garros R1 Prediction

Roland Garros, R1 Prediction
?? (22) Johanna Konta vs. ?? Yulia Putintseva

I’m going to go for the upset here, I think Putintseva has what it takes to win this. The statistic that really stands out heading into this match is Putintseva’s far superior record in Paris. Putintseva is a former quarter-finalist in Paris, this is her most successful tournament whilst Konta has never won a main draw match here. Clay is Putintseva’s best surface whilst clay is Konta’s worst surface, the scene is set for an upset. Konta is low in confidence right now and Putintseva likes this situation where she is not expected to win. Putintseva has the game to expose Konta’s questionable movement on this surface, Putintseva has the edge.

Prediction: Yulia Putintseva to defeat Johanna Konta in 3 sets
