Mandy Minella (@6.25) vs Belinda Bencic (@1.12)

Our Prediction:

Belinda Bencic will win

Mandy Minella – Belinda Bencic Match Prediction | 27-08-2019 11:00

In the early rounds of a grass tournament, the Russian is going to come through. Tracey:Frances Pauline Parmentier hasnt had a great 2019, and I dont see it getting much better. Despite a wonky serve which can go off the rails at any moment, Maria Sharapova is a fierce competitor who digs deep to bring in a win.

For Day 2, we will predict 16 matches. (One features Amanda Anisimova vs Sorana Cirstea, the second headlines Serena Williams vs Giulia Gatto-Monticone, and the third features Donna Vekic vs Alison Riske.) Predicting Day 2 matches for you are myself (Yesh Ginsburg), Jim Smith, and Tracey Essex. Anything can happen, and were here at LWOT to try to predict it for you. This article contains four of them, and we also have three more sets of predictions for you. What should we look forward to on Day 2? Tuesday will complete the first round at The Championships, Wimbledon.

EXPERT PREDICTION FOR Mandy Minella vs Belinda Bencic

She is also not the most natural grass courter. Jim:After the twin disappointments of being forced to retire in Paris with injury before falling just short on the grass in Rosmalen, its uncertain where Bertens; head will be at in south-west London. That said, she has been having an excellent year on all three surfaces.

The Swiss spent a few years not quite at her top level, but she seems to have picked it up since then. Yesh:This is a rough draw for Bencic. Shes still looking for her first Slam semifinal, but dont expect it to come here.

Though the Luxembourger settled to an extent once she began to find the mark with a few forehands, Bencic was able to fend off a break point in each of her next two service games - before seizing the double break with aggressive returning and an electrifying full-stretch pass that caught Minella out at net. Impeccably timed backhands and volleys saw the Dubai champion ride her momentum to a break for 3-2 in the second set.

Mandy Minella vs Belinda Bencic Statistics

Bencic could well be a dark horse for the French Open 2019, so its reasonable to expect her to navigate safely through this match. The world #178 German Antonia Lottner won a tight qualifying contest against Austrian world #189 Barbara Haas to earn this shot at Belinda Bencic. Lottner is definitely better than her ranking suggests, but shell need to be heaps better against the Swiss favourite. Belinda Bencic made a steady start to her clay season reaching the quarterfinals in Charleston.

Minella, one of three mothers in the Stuttgart draw alongside Victoria Azarenka and Vera Zvonareva, particularly impressed with a patient web of slices that out-manoeuvred Bencic on break point. There were touches of carelessness from the baseline sprinkled throughout the match from Bencic, and these coincided with Minella's best patches of play in the second set for the World No.108 to snatch the break back immediately.

The Visp-born home country 20-year-old Ylena In-Albion boasts a clay victory over Timea Bacsinszky in her past. In-Albion should be more comfortable with the surface and the home crowd support could nudge her over the line. In-Albion comes her on a two match losing streak, but Kristina Pliskova is on a three-match run. Her ITF results suggests that this is the world #183s favourite surface.

And having put together an impressive, if slightly inconsistent year, she should be targeting another good run this year. Wimbledon has not been her happiest hunting ground, but she has twice reached the second week, including last year. Jim:It is sometimes easy to forget that Bencic is still just 22, so long has she been a feature in the top tier of the womens game.

From there, the Indian Wells semifinalist was able to maintain her lead for victory, holding firm in a slightly edgy final game and taking victory as a Minella backhand slice drifted long. But for the majority of the match, it was the former World No.7 who was finding the angles and the disguise to outwit Minella, striking 24 winners to 18 unforced errors. Bencic's trademark point construction of redirecting the ball first down one line and then the other came to the fore en route to another break, with the game closed out with an emphatic smash.

Belinda Bencic: results and record

25-year-old Ukrainian Maryna Zanevska is in good form, taking an indoor carpet ITF title in Obidos, Portugal last week. However, a 34-5 clay record last year means we could start seeing the best of her soon. This will be a competitive encounter, but Swiateks clay court prowess should come to the fore. One main draw victory at both Indian Wells and Miami represents progress for such a young star. Polands 17-year-old sensation could soon be hot on Bianca Andreescus tail as the next breakthrough star.
