US Open, ????? R2 Preview + Prediction
(31) ?? Magdalena Rybarikova vs ?? Kristyna Pliskova

The 31st seeded Magdalena Rybarikova will face a tough task in the second round at Flushing Meadows on Wednesday as she comes up against the big-serving Kristyna Pliskova. Rybarikova and Pliskova both cruised through their opening round matches on Monday. Rybarikova navigated her way past the always-dangerous Camila Giorgi 6-3 6-4 whilst Pliskova comfortably accounted for Misa Eguchi with a 6-2 6-2 win. This will be the first career meeting between Rybarikova and Pliskova, this should be entertaining match-up between two very contrasting types of competitors.

I’m going to give the slight edge to Rybarikova here in a tough match to call given this is the first meeting between the pair. Rybarikova has will head into this match with confidence after her run to the semi-finals at Wimbledon a few months ago proved what she is capable of at this level. Rybarikova defeated Karolina Pliskova in that run to the semi-finals and proved that she has the ability to handle a powerful, big server. Kristyna’s big serve will ensure that this match remains reasonably close. However, I think Rybarikova will have prove a tricky opponent for Pliskova, mainly because of her delicate slice and low bouncing groundstrokes which will trouble Pliskova (one of the tallest players on tour).
