Oceane Dodin secured her spot in the second round in New York courtesy of an extremely hard-fought 3-6 6-0 7-6 win over Pauline Parmentier. It was a typically erratic performance by Dodin who saved two matches points and came from 2-5 down in the deciding set to secure an important win over an opponent she has previously struggled against. Dodin will enter this second round clash against Venus with little to lose, if Dodin is on, she can pose a threat to Venus.

Despite the threat posed by Dodin’s aggressive game, II expect Venus Williams will too tough for Dodin. The Frenchwoman is very streaky, expect a lot of winners but also a lot of errors. Venus usually plays very well against powerful opponents, that has been a constant theme throughout 2017. Dodin may have her moments throughout the match, but ultimately she will not be able to consistently trouble Venus.
