Volvo Car Open, Charleston R1 Prediction
Aleksandra Krunic vs. Bethanie Mattek-Sands
I’m going to side with Krunic here. Whilst Krunic has not been in great form of late, this is a match that she should be winning. Mattek-Sands is naturally still rusty at the moment given this will be just her second match since Wimbledon last year after a long injury layoff. I think this should be a good match-up for Krunic. Krunic is better suited to the green clay and should be good enough from the baseline to get the better of Mattek-Sands. Importantly, Krunic possesses dangerous passing shots which will make life tough for Mattek-Sands at the net. Krunic should be too strong for a rusty Mattek-Sands.
