Caroline Garcia v Astra Sharma Head to Head

Garcia and Sharma have never played each other in a competitive encounter before this.

Garcia Form Still a Worry

Despite winning her opening round match with the kind of ease one would have expected out of Garcia when she was ranked fourth in the world, there are still worries around her form over the past couple of seasons or so.

For instance, Garcia had entered this tournament on the back of four successive defeats, having lost three of those matches on grass and one on clay in Hamburg.

What would worry Garcia is earlier in the season she hadn’t gone too deep into any of the tournaments she played in but was more consistent in her results. Now, over the last couple of months, defeats to unfancied players have risen.

Which is probably why should be more relieved than anything else to have won her opener here the way she did – a 6-2, 6-2 win over Alexandra Dulgheru. It needed her only an hour and 11 minutes and the question now is if she can make it two in two against the 128th-ranked doubles specialist.

Sharma Makes Two Comeback Wins in a Row

It had needed Sharma to come back from a set down in her qualifier to win the match and qualify for the main draw. And she repeated that dose in her opener too.

The Australian registered a three-set win over Kristyna Pliskova, needing an hour and 50 minutes to enter the second round.

Broken twice in the first set, Sharma came back to take a 3-2 lead with a break of serve in the second but dropped her serve the very next game. A fighting battle went into the tie-breaker which Sharma won 7-4 before racing through the final set with two breaks of serves that took her home.

This was her first main draw victory since Sharma opened her WTA title count in Charleston in April. Can she now make it two in two?

Garcia v Sharma Prediction and Tip

Garcia has shown some vulnerability in the past but Sharma might have the arsenal to test the Frenchwoman. Expect a victory for Garcia, even if it’s not the most straightforward one.
