This will be their first meeting.
This will be a good test for the young French Player. She has better clay stats this year. Early in the season she was not winning many matches but her performances were decent. It was just a matter of time before results started to go
her way and she reached the third round in Madrid on clay as a qualifier.earlier this month. She beat Giorgi in straight sets in the last round.
Kuznetsova played fairly well to beat McHale in the last round. The sets were tight and she had to work very hard for her service holds. She faced 11 break points and was broken 4 times in 2 sets. She has had some performances this year that she will have been disappointed with.
If Kuznetsova is a little below par here this could go to 3 sets but I expect her to win. It’s worth a lay if Kuznetsova breaks early.
