Steve’s WTA French Open Preview: Keys vs Fernandez

Posted on

I am in complete agreement with Vinny, who posted on this match earlier today.

With this match scheduled to be taking place a little later in the day, this looks to fall when the weather is predicted to take a bit of a turn. Fernandez looked exceptional in her first round win over Potapova, and it helped confirm my thoughts that she thrives on pace coming from the other end of the court. She will find herself outmatched for periods here against Keys, however her movement and ability to absorb and redirect pace here will be crucial.

Keys is always a threat when she steps on court, however I just don’t feel as though she is playing well enough or consistently enough to warrant the current odds in this one. I will be taking the young Canadian here for 1 unit.

Suggested Bet

1 unit Fernandez to defeat Keys at $1.90 at Bet365
