2-0 to Anastasia Potapova

All signs are pointing towards a straight-set win. Although Potapova hasn’t enjoyed much success at the French Open in the past, her current campaign has been encouraging, highlighted by a notable semifinal run at the Munich Open. While Townsend has shown promise with strong performances in the Florence Open and Rome Masters, where she secured four wins each, their previous encounter tells a different story. Potapova dominated their last duel, limiting Townsend to just one game in a commanding 6-0, 6-1 victory. Taking into account this dominant performance, we are favouring Potapova to continue her winning ways and secure a straight-set triumph in this match.
