Shuai Peng – Garbine Muguruza Match Prediction | 24-09-2019 05:00

With eight breaks in her last four sets, Muguruza seems to be getting her feet under her and putting together some consistent tennis, much better than what she finished 2018 with. Muguruza won 58 of her total services points and produced six breaks on nine break points. Garbine Muguruza is coming off a straight sets win over Mona Barthel that took 21 games to decide. In the victory, Muguruza won 69 percent of her first serve points and 39 percent of her second serve points. This is a tournament Muguruza has to feel she can win with the field opening up. Muguruza has won all four sets this tournament, and while shes capable of being better with her second serve, shes been aggressive with her return and has made light work of her opponents. Muguruza has won six of her last eight matches on hard court.

However, Yastremska must clean up the unforced errors if shes going to make an even deeper run. Dayana Yastremska is coming off a straight sets win over Shuai Peng that took 17 games to decide. Yastremska won 68 percent of her total service points and saved all four of her break points. It wasnt the cleanest performance from Yastremska, which included five double faults, but she was never in danger of losing the match that took less than an hour and a half to complete. In the victory, Yastremska won 83 percent of her first serve points and 58 percent of her second serve points. Yastremska has a chance to win three matches in a single tournament for the first time since Luxembourg of last year.

Tracey:After bringing in a straight sets win against Venus Williams, Ukrainian superstar Elina Svitolina should be feeling more than confident. In fact, after starting her French Open campaign against one of the tours toughest, little should concern Svitolina going forward.

UPCOMING GAMES

However, Zhang has been so bad with her second serve that its hard seeing her get the job done here or even compete. I try to avoid Muguruza often when betting WTA tennis. Muguruza is so hit or miss that shes never a safe bet to win a match, as her confidence is easily shot and the unforced errors pile up.

Garbine Muguruza enters this tournament losing three of her last four matches, which includes a first round exit in Cincinnati. Muguruza has lost six of her last 13 matches overall and can often look a little nonchalant on the court, which makes things even more frustrating. Muguruza hasnt lost in the first round of a grand slam since the 2014 US Open. Muguruza has won seven of her last nine matches on hard court. Which makes things even more concerning is that Muguruza has won just 50 percent of her US Open matches, which is head and shoulders her least successful grand slam. Muguruza is coming off a performance in which she won just 28 of her second serve points and gave her opponent 13 break points.

The second serve has given Zhang serious trouble in her losses, as opponents have feasted on it and used it to put her behind the eight ball in matches. Zhang has made it out of the first round of a grand slam in six of her last eight appearances. Shuai Zhang enters this tournament losing eight of her 12 matches and has won just three matches since the Wimbledon. Zhang is coming off a performance in which she won just 48 percent of total service points and had four double faults. If Zhang is going to pull off the upset tin this match, thats an area that has to drastically improve. Zhang has split her last six matches on hard court.

Im going to side with Zhang here. Muguruza has been unconvincing for much of 2018 and that has been true over the last few months. Indeed Zhangs consistent game should see her sneak through this one against a potentially rusty and distracted Muguruza. Zhang on the hand has been in good form and enjoys playing in China where she will receive great support. Zhang's defensively ability is likely to frustrate Muguruza in her first match for while.

After dropping the first set 7-5, the Spaniard cleaned up her errors, sharpened up her serve and blasted her way to an opening round win. Johanna Larsson came to Paris having lost nine of her last 10 matches, so her win against Rybarikova has to feel pretty good. Tracey:Garbine Muguruza withstood the test of Taylor Townsend.

Upcoming matches

In that match, she was able to combine aggressive hitting with some fine defensive play. Jim:After a miserable start to the clay-court season for Svitolina, the Ukrainian seemed to be back to her best in the first round, besting Venus Williams in straight sets.
