Wang Qiang is the highest ranked player by some margin in the semifinals. Even though she had a day to recover after her thrilling round of 16 struggle against Andrea Petkovic, any reduction in the amount of time she had to spend fighting no court will be welcome especially when she faces a top 20 player in the semifinal. The top seed has not, however, had the cleanest entry into her match up with Camila Giorgi. The speed of the match will help Giorgi. This is particularly striking because Giorgi had never previously defeated Cornet on hard courts. She recovered swiftly to claim a 0-6, 6-1, 6-4 victory. Giorgi, who has won both matches she and Wang have played, breezed past Alize Cornet 6-2, 6-1. Wang dropped her opening set against Anna Blinkova without winning a game.
We can know how theyve looked at least once before they take the court on Day 4. And, were here to predict these Day 4 matches for you. (We also have two other sets of Day 4 predictions. One features Johanna Konta vs Lauren Davis and the other headlines Garbine Muguruza vs Johanna Larsson.) Predicting these matches today are myself (Yesh Ginsburg), Jim Smith, and Tracey Essex. Every woman playing on Wednesday already has a match under her belt. We begin the second round of the French Open on Day 4.
But against Bencic, I doubt Siegemund can find that same high level. The Swiss has the ability to punish Siegemunds deficient second serve. Laura Siegemund turned in a masterful first round performance with just eight unforced errors and a solid serve. With just 10 unforced errors, the Swiss commanded the court, firing off 30 winners with complete ease. Tracey:Belinda Bencic played a picture perfect first round match.

Jim:Stephens may not have made a great start to the season by her standards, but she looked sharp in dispatching Misaki Doi in the first round. She will likely have to remain focused again up against Spains Sorribes Tormo, who impressed against Alison Van Uytvanck.
Of course I feel the pressure, because I have also expectations for myself. I always play well here, so I want also this year to be the same. But Im not going to put pressure on myself for the result. she added. The toughness of the win could be the perfect thing to refocus Halep in her goal to defend her title.I dont put pressure on myself, negative pressure.
Jim:Under the tutelage of Naomi Osakas former coach Sascha Bajin, Mladenovic has been a woman renewed. Her run to the Italian Open quarterfinals earlier this month was most impressive and she played some very good tennis to beat her countrywoman Fiona Ferro in the first round.
Simona Halep vs Magda Linette Roland Garros 2019 Preview and Prediction
Magda Linette had a simple win in the previous round as she defeated Astra Sharma in straight sets. It has been a very strong few weeks for Magda Linette as she won the Bronx Open last week. The receiving was also solid as Magda Linette broke Astra Shamas serve on 2 occasions. During the win, Linette impressed with her serving as she won 66% of her service points which allowed her to win all of her service games.
Jim:Peterson was very impressive in her 6-3 7-5 win over former-quarterfinalist Yulia Putintseva and will surely come into this match full of confidence. Vekic, meanwhile, has rather flattered to deceive so far in her career, with her results thus far failing to live up to her impressive potential.
Looking at Naomi Osaka, the Japanese superstar lost a set in the previous round but she still did enough to secure the result. Naomi Osaka is the current US Open champion and she has an outstanding record at this venue. Osaka has had a tough 2019 season but she managed to get some form at the Cincinnati Masters and the Rogers Cup as she made the quarterfinals of both events. During the win, Osaka impressed with her receiving as she managed to win 41% of her receiving points which allowed her to break her opponents serve on 5 occasions.
