Sania Mirza/Rohan Bopanna vs Andreja Klepac/Jean-Julien Rojer: Prediction
So far, Bopanna’s strong serve and excellent groundstrokes from the baseline, as well as his ability to execute a superior net game, stand out. Sania is also a great help to him. Klepac and Rojer, on the other hand, have been outstanding throughout. With Bopanna’s powerful strokes and Sania’s grandslam experience, we predict the Indian duo will win in three sets.
Prediction: Mirza/Bopanna to win in three sets.
