Roland Garros, R3 Prediction
?? (8) Petra Kvitova vs. ?? (25) Anett Kontaveit
I’m going to go for the upset here, I think this is Kontaveit’s time to step up. Kontaveit has shown that she has the game to get the better of Kvitova having pushed her all the way in their two previous matches. Kontaveit has a great record against top players having claimed 4 top 10 win in the last few months alone. Kvitova has already shown signs of vulnerability this week, especially in her first match and whilst she is on a big winning streak, the clay in Paris certainly favours Kontaveit in this match-up. The conditions in Madrid where Kvitova won the title in very different to the conditions in Paris, it is much slower in Paris. Kontaveit has the solid, aggressive, all-court game that can beat Kvitova on this surface and I believe she will do it here.
