Roland Garros 2019: Day 2 Women’s Match of the Day – Cirstea vs Kvitova

Petra Kvitova (6) vs. Sorana Cirstea

A lot of first round matches featuring seeded players lack a level of intrigue.  To be sure, Kvitova has more weapons and should win this match.  Still, Sorona Cirstea is a talented player who can push Kvitova.  If the courts play slower than Kvitova would like, an upset could happen.  Score pressure and not being into a specific event can lower a seed’s level of play.

For Kvitova to win, she will need to be patient and allow her greater array of shots to generate a lead over time.  For Cirstea to win, she will need to keep the match close and let the scoreboard and seeding place pressure on Kvitova’s shoulders.
