On Tuesday, September 29, 2020, the match of the inaugural round of the French Open, on the women’s main table, between Elena Rybakina (18 WTA) from Kazakhstan and Sorana Cirstea (83 WTA) from Romania is scheduled.
The recommended forecast concerns the total number of aces sent by the serial number 14.
Elena Rybakina: Team form, news and statistics
Elena (21 years old) is a very tall and strong player, at 1.84 meters and 73 kilograms.
She comes here to Paris after an extraordinary week in Strasbourg, in which she tied 4 consecutive victories, until she was defeated by Elina Svitolina in the final.
Obviously, Rybakina prefers faster terrain, with a much higher balance on outdoor hard.
He has 2 titles in his record, on the clay from Bucharest 2019 and on the cement from Hobart 2020.
Service is an important weapon in tennis displayed by the Kazakh player. In 2020 he totaled 188 aces in 36 matches, ie an average of 5.2 per match.
However, this value is drawn up by the games at the start of the season, when it evolved very well on hard.
Last week he managed 4 aces with Greetje Minnen, 1 ace with Alize Cornet, 6 aces with Shuai Zhang, 5 aces with Nao Hibino – each time in a minimum of sets, and in 3 sets with Elina Svitolina he sent only one ace. Previously, in Rome he had managed 3 aces against Ekaterina Alexandrova, 4 aces against Marie Bouzkova and 7 aces against Yulia Putintseva.
Sorana Cîrstea: Team form, news and statistics
Sorana (30 years old) is a former quarterfinalist at Roland Garros, in 2009. Unfortunately, in recent years she has not performed at a high level on slag, passing only twice the inaugural round of the last 5 appearances.
Overall career, the Romanian recorded 172 victories and 108 defeats. In 2018 and 2019 it had a negative balance on slow surfaces.
However, Cîrstea showed signs of recovery at the US Open, where he defeated his favorite Johanna Konta, after a splendid match in which he managed many direct winning shots.
In the only match played on slag, in 2020, she was defeated by the Italian Sara Errani, in round 1 of the WTA Palermo, with the score of 5-7 6-1 4-6. And then he lacked consistency, after a game categorically dominated in set 2, but in the end he made extremely many unforced mistakes.

▪️The sportswoman from Kazakhstan won the only direct duel, score 3-6 6-3 6-1, this year in Doha, on hard outdoor.
Tennis Prediction of the Day Elena Rybakina vs Sorana Cîrstea
I bet with average confidence on a match with a maximum of 4 aces served by the favorite from Kazakhstan.
Sorana Cîrstea is a rather anticipatory player on her return, she rarely receives many aces, and this in special conditions on very fast pitches, from players with top serves.
At Roland Garros the terrain will be heavy, the humidity is high, the atmosphere is loaded and it is quite cold, below 15 degrees. Compared to previous years, the balls have also changed, and this aspect also slows down the game.
Elena Rybakina served 7 aces in the previous direct match, from the fast hard in Doha, in the decisive set, but after 2 rounds she stopped at exactly 4 aces.
They are prerequisites for a duel fragmented by the weather conditions, the rain being likely on Monday, in Paris, and the rhythm of the game, including at work, will suffer.
Bet Tips: Under 4.5 aces – Rybakina
