(11) πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ Garbine Muguruza vs πŸ‡¨πŸ‡Ώ Barbora Strycova

Garbine Muguruza and Barbora Strycova will renew hostilities when they collide in the second round of the Aegon International in Eastbourne. Muguruza has generally had the better of Strycova winning 3 of their past 4 encounters, but this will be their first ever meeting on a grass court, a surface that Strycova is more comfortable on. Muguruza brings good form into Eastbourne after reaching the semi-finals in Birmingham last week and will look to build on that result, whilst Strycova hasn’t had the best results of late, a win over Muguruza would give Strycova a much needed confidence boost.

Interestingly, Cornet has a fairly dominant head-to-head record over Strycova (5-2), but Strycova has generally played the better tennis of late, a clay court will suit Cornet in this match-up. This looks like an exciting match…
