Tennis | Carla Suárez Navarro vs Johanna Konta
Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

British player, Johanna Konta, will play Carla Suárez Navarro from Spain in the second round of the WTA Connecticut Open. Both players were very impressive in the opening round of the event and they looked in good form. This is a big game since the winner will make it to the next round while the loser will be eliminated. I am expecting both Johanna Konta and Carla Suárez Navarro to play at the top of their game in this match.

Carla Suárez Navarro had a very dominating win in the opening round. The Spaniard won in straight sets against the number 8 seed. The most impressive part about the match was the level of dominance that Carla Suárez Navarro showed as she prevented her opponent from getting into the contest. The serving was a little issue for Carla Suárez Navarro as she only managed to hit 63% of her first serves. This is something that Carla Suárez Navarro will look to improve in this match. This should be a tougher contest than the opening round fixture since Konta looks in very good form.

Similar to Navarro, Johanna Konta also won her opening round match in straight sets. The British superstar has been playing well for a few months and she will feel that she has a great chance of doing well in Connecticut considering how well the courts are suiting her play. Johanna Konta will need to remain patient since Navarro is a good player but if that happens, Konta has enough skill to win.

While Carla Suárez Navarro has been very impressive, I am still picking her to lose. Johanna Konta looks very solid and in supreme form. I think she will be able to break down the defense of Carla Suárez Navarro and get a spot in the third round of this tournament.

 

Pick:
Johanna Konta
