This will be the first meeting between Kristyna Pliskova and Garbine Muguruza.

Spain’s Muguruza is one of the tournament front runners on the clay to get the title at Roland Garros.

The bookmakers believe there to be little chance of an upset in this one, with Muguruza running as the strong odds-on favourite for the second round clash.

But she faced a big challenge in the first round and almost stumbled.

Kristyna Pliskova Preview – Pliskova facing a big challenge in French Open second round

Kristyna Plsiovka, sister of Karolina, is a 3/1 underdog for this contest on Thursday, which is a second round match at the French Open* (odds taken 00:49 GMT Wednesday 30th September)..

Since the season was restarted, she came out in quite a positive fashion. There was a first round in over Maria Sakkari at the Palmero Ladies Open for example.

That was a huge upset that she caused against the third-seed.

Pliskova then ran to the semi finals of the Prague Open, where she put in a very good performance in defeat to Elise Mertens.

She went down swinging in a very tight match. But she didn’t get going at the US Open at all, losing in the first round.

So her opening success in Paris for this tournament will have delighted her because it was a powerful 6-1 6-2 win over Viktoria Kuzmova that she took

Our betting prediction:
Muguruza -5.5 Games Handicap

(odds taken 00:49 GMT Wednesday 30th September)


This will be the first time that she has faced Garbine Muguruza, and it’s going to be a big ask for the Czech player who is ranked 69th in the world.

There is actually an 8/11 quote on her to not win a set in this match* (odds taken 00:49 GMT Wednesday 30th September).

She will be facing a very good clay-court player and a player in Muguruza who is third-favorite for the title.

In none of her previous five appearances in the main draw of the French Open had Plsikova managed to get past the first round.

So she has broken some new ground here.


Garbine Muguruza Preview – In-form Muguruza to excel

It has been a great year for Garbine Muguruza who reached the final of the Australian Open and now is a leading contender for the French Open.

She landed the French Open title in 2016 and has not failed in any of her last six appearances in the main draw to make it to at least the fourth round.

Muguraza did suffer a surprise second round loss at the US Open, going down in straight sets against Tsvetana Pironkova.

But immediately after that, she was back in top form on a return to clay. She ran through to the semi finals of the Italian Open.

She lost out in a gripping three-set match to Simona Halep, but Muguruza came through a very trough draw just to get to that stage.

It was a run against Sloane Stephens, Cori Gauff, Jo Konta and then Victoria Azarenka across the course of the week to reach the final.

Three of her final four matches went the distance over three sets, but we don’t see that happening in this one.

Garbine Muguruza didn’t have a relaxing time of things in the first round of the 2020 French Open.

But again she showed tremendous grit in difficult conditions to get the better of Tamara Zidansek in three sets.

That was a gruelling battle over three hours as well, Muguruza taking the final set 8-6.

She would never have expected things to get quite so tough in the first round, but it was a good experience and gets her some steely-focus right from the off.

A Garbine Muguruza 2-0 option in set betting is at 4/6 odds* (odds taken 00:49 GMT Wednesday 30th September).

We don’t see Muguruza having the troubles that she had in the opening round. We would fancy her get through in straight sets at 4/6* (odds taken 00:49 GMT Wednesday 30th September).

There’s plenty of appeal in that and her first round struggles should have shaken any lingering complacent out of her.
