Naomi Osaka vs Amanda Anisimova: Preview
Naomi Osaka, the four-time grand slam champion, is unseeded in the French Open 2022 and will face the world number 21, Amanda Anisimova in the first-round match. Osaka didn’t have a great season, but she made a final appearance in the Miami Open. Just when things were falling in place for Osaka, she bowed out in the ’round of 32′ in the Mutua Madrid Open and then retired from the Italian Open. She will be hoping for a good end to the clay season with a deep run in the French Open, but the Japanese faces a very tough first-round opponent.
Amanda Anisimova has been very consistent with her performance on clay. She had made it to the semifinals of the Charleston Open, then followed it up with two consecutive quarterfinals appearances in the Mutua Madrid Open and the Italian Open. Anisimova has been excellent on the surface, and she would love to cap the season off with a great performance at Stade Roland Garros. Anisimova will have a stern test as she plays Osaka in the first round, but she will get a slightly easier pairing with Donna Vekic if she manages to cross the hurdle named Osaka.
Naomi Osaka vs Amanda Anisimova: Head-to-Head
Naomi Osaka and Amanda Anisimova have played each other once before, in the Australian Open 2022, where Anisimova beat Osaka in straight sets. Anisimova leads their head-to-head score 1-0.
Naomi Osaka vs Amanda Anisimova: Prediction
Naomi Osaka couldn’t replicate her great run in Miami on the clay courts. She arrives at the Phillipe Chatrier with just two matches on the red clay before facing Anisimova. Anisimova, on the other hand, has had a stellar season except for some minor slip-ups, which have cost her some better results, but she is a slight favorite going against Osaka in their first-round clash. It would be a mouth-watering clash with two extremely talented players trying to slay alive in at Roland-Garros.
Prediction: Anisimova to win in three sets.
