The match will be a tricky one between two players who are both very good on Clay. Martic has proved her metal at Rome and would want to keep those big forehands running against Giorgi. As for the Italian, her defense has been her strength over the years. She also has a very good return of serve and would want to keep her head straight during the match. Expect a quality match with Martic prevailing into the next round.

Prediction: Martic to win in straight sets.
