Garbine Muguruza vs. Maria Sharapova, Roland Garros QF Prediction

?? Roland Garros, QF Prediction
?? (3) Garbine Muguruza vs. ?? (28) Maria Sharapova

I’m going to side with Muguruza here. I have been impressed with what I have seen from the Spaniard so far in Paris, easily beating a couple of quality opponents in the form of Kuznetsova and Stosur. Muguruza will be very determined heading into this match to make a big statement and finally defeat Sharapova, when Muguruza is motivated as she certainly is whenever she is on the big stage then she is very tough to beat. I think the Spaniard is stronger than Sharapova, Muguruza has a heavier game and has greater stamina. The Spaniard also has a slightly more versatile game. Sharapova will fight hard and is playing well herself but when it down to the it late in the match I think Muguruza is too strong.

Prediction: Garbine Muguruza to defeat Maria Sharapova in 3 sets
