Prediction

Both players come into the match up having spent a long period away from professional tennis action, which could lead to some surprises.

While thier head to head history may reflect otherwise, Muguruza’s 2020 form and higher ranking make her the favorite for this encounter.

The Spaniard’s offense on the baseline worked wonders on outdoor hardcourts 12 months ago. She will look to open this year in similar fashion.

On the other hand Mladenovic could use her strong first serve and squash the Muguruza agression early to prevent her from controlling the baseline rallies.

The Frenchwoman should look to surprise the Spaniard by mixing up her game and attacking at the net.

Having said that we can almost certainly expect to see plenty of hard-hitting baseline backhand rallies.

Most experts are with Garbine Muguruza on this opening game and expect her to win in three sets.
