Emma Raducanu vs Caroline Garcia: Preview
Her first-round win over Belgium opponent Alison Van Uytvanck was a 101-minute, straight-set affair where Emma made quite the opening statement. She’s been at the spotlight ever since her US Open win last year where she shattered the record books in terms of being the youngest to achieve many of the accomplishments. But as they say in professional sport, you’re only as good as your last game.
She’s up against French player Caroline Garcia, who won her 8th career title in Bad Homburg where she triumphed Canadian sensation Bianca Andreescu in the finals. In her first-round win over Yuriko Miyazaki, Garcia had dropped the opening set but then took the longer route to pave her way for the 2nd round fixture. The 2 hours 17 minutes battle was a much more competitive exchange than compared to what her opponent had encountered in her rather breezy first-round match.
Emma Raducanu vs Caroline Garcia: Prediction
The Grand Slam winner who’s still a teenager has been seeing and experiencing it all over the last 12 months. If she is someone who does read or hear about what is being written or said about her, there will be added motivation to prove that she isn’t a one time wonder.
Caroline Garcia, who once Andy Murray mentioned would reach the epitome, hasn’t really seen her career taken off the way many of her loyal supporters would have hoped. Her mental quotient seems to be a limitation and that can prove to be decisive as many eyeballs would be glued to this contest.
Prediction: Raducanu to win in three sets.
