Miami Open, ????? R1 Prediction
?? Monica Puig vs ?? Samantha Stosur
I’m going to side with Puig here. I think this match-up on this particular surface favours Puig and Stosur has some real mental demons to deal with after her devastating loss to Puig earlier this year in Melbourne. Miami is like a second home to Puig and the conditions really suit her game. Having watched a few of Puig’s matches of late I have liked what I have seen, she has played really well in patches, even in her 3 set loss to Sevastova in Indian Wells. I think Puig is playing the better tennis right now and is confident in this match-up having won the last two matches between the pair.
