???? Roland Garros, R2 Preview
?? (19) Garbine Muguruza vs. ?? Johanna Larsson
Garbine Muguruza made a shaky start to her 2019 Roland Garros campaign on Sunday and will be looking for a more straightforward victory on Wednesday when she takes on Sweden’s Johanna Larsson in the second round.
Muguruza was forced to fight from a set down to defeat Taylor Townsend in her opening round match in Paris. Muguruza played a messy first set but steadied to claim a 5-7 6-2 6-2 victory. The 2016 Roland Garros champion has consistently performed well at this event and despite poor recent form she is always a threat at this tournament.
Johanna Larson booked a second round showdown with the 19th seed thanks to an important 6-3 6-4 win over Magdalena Rybarikova. Every victory at this level is big for Larsson at this stage of her career, she will enter her second round clash against Muguruza with nothing to lose and a lot to prove.
This will be the first career meeting between Muguruza and Larsson
