Alize Cornet v Camila Giorgi Head to Head
Cornet and Giorgi have met six times, with the Italian establishing a 4-2 lead in their head-to-head. The Frenchwoman won the first two meetings in 2014, but it has been Giorgi who has dominated this match-up, inluding their most match coming at the New York Open, where she completed a 6-2 6-1 rout.
Cornet Cruised in Her Opener
With fellow French players such as Carolina Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic scraping through in their opening round matches, it was a contrasting result by the fourth-seeded Alize Cornet who bludgeoned her way past Antonia Lottner of Germany 7-5 6-0.
The World No.58 won the last seven games of the contest to win in straight sets. Cornet would later admit in the presser that it was indeed a real positive to win in two sets, and who could deny?
Indeed, the 30-year-old has been synonymous for workmanlike performances throughout her career, often making a melee of easy situations. That victory over the German qualifier was just her second straight-sets match-win after also besting Jelena Ostapenko 6-1 6-2 in St. Petersburg last month.
Can she solve the Giorgi puzzle for the first time since 2014?
Giorgi’s Record Against Cornet Holds Her in Good Stead
It wasn’t just Cornet who was hitting the ball so pure, but Italy’s Camila Giorgi thrived in her opening match against Vera Lapko of Belarus who was making her first return since Wimbledon.
Giorgi has won five of her eight career singles titles on the indoor hard-courts, and the quick conditions in the inaugural French International event in Lyon are perfect for her powerful game to blossom and cause serious damage this week.
The unseeded Italian had a poor year in 2019 in which she struggled with a wrist problem that saw her drop to No.99 in the world and limited her to play in just 30 matches. Almost half of those came in two months where she made the finals of both Washington and the New York Open.
Alize Cornet v Camila Giorgi Predictions & Tips
History seems to suggest that this is a really terrible match-up for Cornet and I can’t see it changing. Giorgi is notable for hitting every ball as hard as she can for a winner which won’t leave room for Cornet to enter into those trademark slug-fests from the back of the court. If the Italian finds her range with her limitless power, expect her to advance.
