Jennifer Brady vs Fiona Ferro: Prediction
Despite her game not suiting Clay, Brady will go in as the favorite to win the match. She was just a step away from tasting grand slam glory in Melbourne, and that outing should definitely give her a perspective in keeping nerves tight in crunch moments. As always, her baseline groundstrokes will be the key and if Ferro wants to make an impact, she will have to make Brady move. Expect a tight match with the American cruising into the next round.
Prediction: Brady to win in straight sets.
