Magdalena Rybarikova vs. Johanna Konta, Madrid R1 Prediction

Mutua Madrid Open R1 Prediction
?? (16) Magdalena Rybarikova vs. ?? Johanna Konta

I’m going to side with Konta here. I think this is a match-up that favours Konta. Whilst both are not too confident on clay, I think it is Konta who is favoured by the surface in this match-up. Konta has more firepower from the baseline, a more reliable serve and is better defensively. The courts in Madrid are reasonably quick for a clay court which will be the perfect conditions to hit through Rybarikova.

Prediction: Johanna Konta to defeat Magdalena Rybarikova in 2 sets
