WTA Engie Open de Limoges, 10:30 – Paszek v Friedsam
Paszek won their only previous meeting. That was in August 2013 on a hard court. She won in straight sets.
Paszek beat Mitu in the last round in straight sets. She was underdog for that match. Her 1st serve was excellent but her 2nd let her down a little.
Friedsam had a struggle in the first round. She needed 3 sets against a player ranked 827th. I would expect her to be better in this match now she has played a match on these courts.
I can see this going to 3 sets. Value is on Paszek . Lay Friedsam if she goes an early break ahead.
WTA Engie Open de Limoges, 15:00 – Schiavone v Minella
Schiavone wasn’t in good form coming into this tournament but started her 1st round match with a very good attitude. She had to work hard but won in 2 sets.
Minella lost in the qualifying rounds but got a Lucky Loser place in the main draw. She beat Voegele who was poor in her first round match.
I have to go with Schiavone to win this one. If she is focused she should win in 2.
Back Schiavone above 1.80.
