WTA French Open, 1st round: Vesnina v Brengle (14:00)

This will be their first meeting.

Vesnina has had a strong season so far though we have seen a slight dip in form recently.  She reached the final in Charleston and the second round in Madrid as a qualifier. She didn’t make it through the qualifying rounds in Rome losing out to Allison Riske in straight sets. Last week although she reached the quarter final she wasn’t as sharp as she has been. She scraped through the first round in a third set tie break and lost to Razzano in the quarter final. Razzano was playing well above her normal level to be fair.

Brengle has a losing record on clay. She has struggled in all her clay tournaments this season apart from randomly taking the ITF title in Osprey, USA  in March. She has never won a main draw match at Roland Garros.

Vesnina starts around 1.47 . I will wait for 1.70 before backing her.
