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.
