Camila Giorgi vs Jessica Pegula – Match Predictions
With both players eyeing a third-round spot, these are our predictions and tips for this match
Jessica Pegula to Win 2-0
The world number 2 Pegula has won all of her last 4 matchups vs Giorgi. She leads the H2Hs 7-2 and clearly has an upper hand over the Italian with her superior groundstrokes. We think Pegula can go deep in this year’s Roland Garros and we back her not to waste any time on the court in this round 2 matchup and finish the job in straight sets.
Georgi looked solid in round 1 vs Cornet but the Italian is still not 100% fit after sustaining an injury during the Madrid Open in early May. She had to call a medical timeout during her first match and with Pegula knowing how to move her opponents across the court we envision Giorgi struggling and losing yet again against the American.
Total Games: Under 20.5
With our next free betting tip, we expect the match to have fewer than 20.5 games in it. If we believe Pegula will win in straight sets this is very likely. Pegula needed just 18 games to win in round 1 against Daniele Collins (6-4, 6-2). She also dropped just 8 games combined in the last 4 sets she won against Giorgi.
Camila Giorgi vs Jessica Pegula Preview
Our Giorgi vs Pegula predictions are out of the way; let’s explore both players’ recent form ahead of this competition.
Girogi got hurt in round 1 of the recent Madrid Open and had to retire. She managed to play in Rome after that and reached round 3. She also looked decent in round 1 of the French Open when beating another veteran Alize Cornet 63, 6-4. Girogi had some physical problems in the match though and had to call a medical timeout. Clearly, she is still not fully over the foot injury sustained in early May.
Jessica Pegula has been enjoying a solid season so far. After her run to the quarterfinals in Australia and a lost final on hard courts soon after the American hasn’t slowed down much.
Jess Pegula went deep in all of the Masters so far, but the last one right before Roland Garros. On clay, she reached the semi-finals in Charleston before going to the quarterfinals in Madrid. Both times she lost in 3 sets against top-12 players. She then got stunned in round 1 in Rome with a defeat vs the qualifier Townsend. However, Pegula said this gave her extra days to prepare well for the French Open and she started the tournament in convincing style with her 6-4, 6-2 win in round 1 against the always-dangerous Daniele Collins.
Giorgi vs Pegula Head to Head
The American leads the H2H 7-2. Pegula won all of the last 4 matches between the two. The most recent of her wins was just a few months ago at the 2023 Indian Wells. She lost the first set on that occasion but then went on to win the next two 6-1 and 6-2.
