Sorana Cirstea vs Caroline Garcia – Match Predictions

With players such as Cirstea and Garcia not the most well known on the women’s circuit, we want to give you some more context to both bets below. You can also read our predictions and tips for some of Tuesday’s other fixtures.

Total Sets – 3 Sets

Although Cirstea has cruised through the opening three rounds without dropping a set, this match will be a significant step up in terms of the quality of her opponent. Both of the previous meetings between the pair have gone to three sets and Garcia has come through both of her previous rounds over three sets as well. As a result, we are not expecting a quick contest.

Garcia to win 2-1

With powerful groundstrokes, Garcia is renowned in the women’s game for a never-say-die attitude. Playing in a similar manner to Andy Murray, it is not unusual for her to drop a set and then come back after looking down and out. After a tight first two sets against Leylah Fernandez in round three, she powered through to win the third 6-1. We expect Cirstea to take a set but for Garcia to win 2-1.

Caroline Garcia

The French fifth seed has been taken to three sets across both of her second and third round games after receiving a bye through the first round. She reached the fourth round in Melbourne earlier this year as well as the same stage at Wimbledon and the semi-final at the US Open last year.
