Carla Suarez Navarro vs. Danielle Collins, Eastbourne R2 Prediction

?? Nature Valley International, Eastbourne R2 Prediction
?? (16) Carla Suarez Navarro vs. ?? Danielle Collins

I’m going to side with Suarez Navarro here. I don’t think either player necessarily plays great tennis on grass but I do think this is a match-up that favours Suarez Navarro. The Spaniard’s variety and defensive skills proved too much for Collins to handle earlier this year in Indian Wells and I expect that to be the case here. Collins will have a greater chance to hit through Suarez Navarro on grass but I don’t think she can do it consistently enough. The Spaniard is too clever.

Prediction: Carla Suarez Navarro to defeat Danielle Collins in 3 sets
