?? Mutua Madrid Open, R2 Match Preview
?? Laura Siegemund vs ?? CoCo Vandeweghe

A fascinating second round clash at the Mutua Madrid Open on Tuesday sees Laura Siegemund come up against CoCo Vandeweghe in what is sure to a feisty encounter. Siegemund is one of the form players on tour at the moment after winning the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart. Siegemund is one of those players that almost exclusively play their best tennis on clay, her ability on the dirt was again showcased in a gutsy 3-6 7-5 6-4 win over Johanna Konta in the opening round in Madrid.

CoCo Vandeweghe is never at her best on clay, the American’s form has dropped away after a great start to the year, it will be interesting to see if she can recapture her early season form on the clay. Vandeweghe made a good start in Madrid, beating Anett Kontaveit 6-4 7-6.

CoCo Vandeweghe has won the only two previous matches between the pair, however they were both many, many years ago and this will be the first meeting between the pair in a tour level match. Siegemund’s form is clearly much better than Vandeweghe’s heading into this match, the German has a clear edge on clay. If Siegemund continues her current form she will be too good here.
