Alize Cornet had a very successful Swiss Open as she won another WTA title. The French player was very impressive in that tournament and she will look to take her good form to Russia as she prepares to play in the WTA Moscow Open. She will be taking on German professional player, Laura Siegemund, in the opening round. Both players will be looking forward to this match so we should get an exciting encounter.

Laura Siegemund has won 2 singles WTA titles in the past and at 30 years of age, she has been on the circuit for a long time. The experienced German is coming from Romania where she made it to the quarterfinals of the WTA Bucharest Open. Laura Siegemund looked good at the Bucharest Open and although she failed to win the title, her performances would be good enough to give her confidence as she heads into this clash. This will not be an easy match for the German but she will hope that she can step up and eliminate one of the top-seeded players.

On the other hand, Alizé Cornet will look to continue her form and win this game easily. The French superstar is the 7th seed for this tournament and she will hope that she can win quickly and move onto the next round. It has been a very hectic few weeks for the French player and she has been playing lots of tennis and fatigue could be an issue. That being said, Alizé Cornet won all her games at the Swiss Open in straight sets so she did not have to exert herself too much in that tournament. Either way, Alizé Cornet is the more talented player and if she is fresh enough, she should win this match easily.

I am going to give Alizé Cornet the benefit and suggest that she is fit enough to win this game. The French player is looking very strong and I don’t see her not winning. We are getting a good price to wager on Alizé Cornet winning so that is the bet I am going to suggest.
