Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova vs. Samantha Stosur, Roland Garros R2 Prediction

Roland Garros, R2 Prediction
?? (30) Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova vs. ?? Samantha Stosur

I’m going to give the edge to Stosur here. What stands out heading into this match is Stosur’s awesome record at Roland Garros, a 31-9 win/loss record since 2009. Stosur is seemingly building into some nice form after a quarter-final run in Strasbourg last week and a comfortable opening round win over Wickmayer. Whilst Pavlyuchenkova is in great form right now she may be vulnerable here given the huge amount of tennis she has played in the last week. It is Stosur who has the slightly more reliable game for this surface and I suspect she wins this more often than not. Stosur seems in better shape heading into this match.

Prediction: Samantha Stosur to defeat Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in 3 sets
