🇫🇷🥖💶 Roland Garros, R3 Prediction
🇺🇸 (10) Serena Williams vs. 🇺🇸 Sofia Kenin
Serena Williams enters her third round clash with Sofia Kenin at Roland Garros as a strong favourite. However, the 23-time Grand Slam champion is likely to face her first real test of the tournament here against the young American. Sofia Kenin has already proved that she can match it with the best and will not be intimidated by playing a legend of the game. Expect Kenin to be much more competitive than the odds suggest.
I’m still tipping Williams to progress to the next round but I think Kenin will make this a really competitive match. Kenin is a feisty competitor and has the speed, power and variety to trouble Williams if the American is not on her game. Serena hasn’t made the best start to the tournament and has not played much tennis of late, so there are likely to be some tricky moments in this one as Williams is certainly still rusty and not at her best. Ultimately, Serena’s firepower and experience should get her through this one, Serena’s far superior serve will likely be the major difference.
