Karolína Muchová vs Garbiñe Muguruza
|Date & Time||Wednesday August 29, 2018, 5:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
Having avoided any blunders in the opening round, Garbiñe Muguruza will now play in the second round of the WTA US Open. The Spanish superstar will be taking on Karolína Muchová from the Czech Republic. Both of these players will be keen to do well in this tournament so we should expect to see tons of determination from both players involved.
Garbiñe Muguruza looked very good in her opening round win. The Spanish superstar didn’t allow her opponent to settle and managed to win with some ease. That win would have been very satisfying for Garbiñe Muguruza as she has struggled with injury and form over the past few months. Her opening round win showed that she is very close to being 100% fit as she was moving swiftly and freely while hitting the ball very cleanly. She will hope for another easy match and if she can play like she did in the first round, she should win with ease.
On the other side of the court, Karolína Muchová will hope to defeat one of the biggest names in world tennis. The Czech player is only 22 and she has been very impressive for her age. She was dominant in qualifying and looked very solid as she won her opening round match in straight sets. This will be the biggest challenge that Karolína Muchová will face in her US Open tournament and she will need to improve if she wants to compete with her opponent.
While Karolína Muchová has impressed me very much, I think she will lose. Garbiñe Muguruza will be too strong and I don’t think she will have many problems winning. The number 12 seed was very dominant in her first match and I think that will continue in this match. I see Garbiñe Muguruza winning in straight sets.
