Roland Garros 2021: May 31st Women’s Singles Predictions

Predicted Winners in BOLD

Court Philippe CHATRIER

[8] Iga SWIATEK (POL) vs Kaja JUVAN (SLO) – Swiatek’s forehand is one of the best things in tennis. She could make a strong run at repeating as champion.

[7] Serena WILLIAMS (USA) vs Irina-Camelia BEGU (ROU) – I like Serena draw in general, but this is a pretty rough first round match. I could see it going 3 or even being an upset.

Court Suzanne LENGLEN (11 a.m.)

Laura SIEGEMUND (GER) vs Caroline GARCIA (FRA)

[4] Sofia KENIN (USA) vs Jelena OSTAPENKO (LAT) – The 2020 runner-up has been up and down since last year’s French Open final. Ostapenko has a Roland Garros title. Kenin is steady and Ostapenko is at her best when she plays fearlessly. If Ostapenko’s error count is low, the #4 seed will likely be eliminated.

Court Simonne MATHIEU

Alizé CORNET (FRA) vs [WC] Harmony TAN (FRA) – Cornet is always a cagey competitor.

[12] Garbiñe MUGURUZA (ESP) vs Marta KOSTYUK (UKR) – The former champion should win. Her early 2021 form was outstanding.

Court 4

[Q] Hailey BAPTISTE (USA) vs Anna BLINKOVA (RUS)

[Q] Lara ARRUABARRENA (ESP) vs Varvara GRACHEVA (RUS) – I will pick this match tough qualifier to advance.

Court 5 

Alison VAN UYTVANCK (BEL) vs Martina TREVISAN (ITA)

Tereza MARTINCOVA (CZE) vs Ivana JOROVIC (SRB)

Court 6

[16] Kiki BERTENS (NED) vs Polona HERCOG (SLO)

[19] Johanna KONTA (GBR) vs Sorana CIRSTEA (ROU)Match of the DAY – I like Cirstea to pull a mild upset because of the surface.

Court 7

[14] Elise MERTENS (BEL) vs [Q] Storm SANDERS (AUS)  

[22] Petra MARTIC (CRO) vs Camila GIORGI (ITA) – This should be a good match.

Court 8

Daria KASATKINA (RUS) vs Misaki DOI (JPN)

Saisai ZHENG (CHN) vs Sara SORRIBES TORMO (ESP)

Court 9

[20] Marketa VONDROUSOVA (CZE) vs Kaia KANEPI (EST)  – Kanepi can be tricky, but Vondrousova should advance.

Heather WATSON (GBR) vs Zarina DIYAS (KAZ)

Court 12

Madison BRENGLE (USA) vs [Q] Maria Camila OSORIO SERRANO (COL)

Arantxa RUS (NED) vs Mihaela BUZARNESCU (ROU)

Court 13

Rebecca PETERSON (SWE) vs Shelby ROGERS (USA)

[28] Jessica PEGULA (USA) vs Lin ZHU (CHN)  – US plyers get my nod on court 13? Pegula has had a nice 6 months and should advance here.

Court 14

[6] Bianca ANDREESCU (CAN) vs Tamara ZIDANSEK (SLO) – Andreescu is hard to predict due to massive talent and injury issues. I think she comes through here though.

[10] Belinda BENCIC (SUI) vs Nadia PODOROSKA (ARG)
