A look at Wednesday’s match-ups at Roland Garros:
(1) Serena Williams vs. (7) Samantha Stosur
Serena put a straight-set beatdown on Stosur at the Australian Open in January, expect more of the same here as now the Aussie has expectations. Serena in straights.
(19) Nicolas Almagro vs. (2) Rafael Nadal
Nadal is 6-0 against Almagro, because Almagro can’t close the big matches. Rafa in four.
(4) Jelena Jankovic vs. Yaroslava Shvedova
Shvedova beat Jankovic at last year’s US Open…so…she already had her shot. This is the big stage. Jankovic in three.
(22) Jurgen Melzer vs. (3) Novak Djokovic
Look for the sporadic Melzer to show up against Djokovic’s steady baseline attack. Novak in three.
