Caroline Garcia vs Clara Burel: Preview

Caroline Garcia has been in tremendous touch at the Ladies Open. She started off by thrashing Alexandra Dulgheru in straight sets and then went on to win two more matches back-to-back to confirm her place in the all-important semi-finals.

Caroline has dominated her opponents throughout the tournament. She was stretched to the third set by Astra Sharma in the second-round clash, but she kept her cool in pressure in pressure situations and eventually emerged victoriously. Moreover, she defeated Zarina Diyas in the quarter-finals without much hassle.

Zarina did look a bit out of sorts and did five double faults. This allowed Garcia to dominate the proceedings from the beginning. On the other hand, Clara Burel has been absolutely relentless in the tournament thus far. She defeated second-seeded Fiona Ferro in straight sets in the quarter-final match.

Clara has dropped just one set in the tournament thus far. She even bageled Susan Bandecchi in her first-round encounter and hasn’t looked back since then. Clara will back herself to go past Garcia as well in order to make her way into the finals of the tournament.

Prediction: Carolina Garica to win in 3 tight sets.
