World number four Paula Badosa comes into the French Open having won six matches on clay, albeit half of what she registered ahead of the 2021 tournament. This year has been good to Badosa who claimed a title in Sydney, before reaching the semifinals at Indian Wells and Stuttgart, and the final eight in Miami and Charleston. Her previous two visits to Roland Garros has seen Badosa make it to the second week. Badosa was ranked 87th when she suffered a fourth round elimination at Laura Siegemund’s hand in 2020, last time Badosa returned as a seeded player and knocked out former finalist Marketa Vondrousova enroute to a quarterfinal berth.

There was a reason for Fiona Ferro to celebrate last week as she picked up her first WTA main draw win since August after beating Angelina Gabueva in last week’s Strasbourg championship. That being said, Ferro comes into the French Open ranked almost 100 places below her career-best, the 25-year-old was a top 50 player a year ago. One huge reason behind Ferro ‘s lofty position was clay-court successes in Lausanne and Palermo, and a fourth round appearance at Roland Garros in 2020 Roland-Garros; in fact, five of her 11 career Grand Slam wins have come in her home tournament. This will be Ferro’s second meeting with Badosa, that previous showdown came in the first round of 2018 Morocco Open which saw Badosa claim a 5-7, 6-4, 6-0 success.

Prediction: Paula Badosa to win in three sets
