Magdalena Rybarikova vs. Belinda Bencic, Roland Garros R2 Prediction

Roland Garros, R2 Prediction
?? (19) Magdalena Rybarikova vs. ?? Belinda Bencic

I’m going to give the slight edge to Bencic here. This is a tough match to predict given both Rybarikova and Bencic struggle on clay, both have games that are not well suited to this surface. I think it is Bencic who is better able to adapt to the conditions, Bencic is the better grinder of the two, she has more firepower from the baseline and a heavier game. If Bencic can neutralize Rybarikova’s weapons and get into enough extended rallies I think she will be too strong for Slovakian.

Prediction: Belinda Bencic to defeat Magdalena Rybarikova in 3 sets
