French Open 2017 WTA Round 2 Preview: Garbine Muguruza vs Anett Kontaveit

Garbine Muguruza takes on Anett Kontaveit in the second round of the French Open in what promises to be a hard-hitting, intriguing encounter.

(4) Garbine Muguruza [No.5] vs Anett Kontaveit [No.53]

Overview: Garbine Muguruza’s year has been largely plagued by injuries. After a breakthrough clay season last year which saw her make the semifinals of the Rome Open and famously win the French Open, she has not made a final since. Her 2017 started with a semifinal in Brisbane, but she had to retire to Alize Cornet there. Since then three more retirements came, in Dubai to Kateryna Bondarenko, in Miami to Caroline Wozniacki, and just recently in Rome to Elina Svitolina. Let’s not forget her other results this year though – her most notable results were quarterfinal appearances in the Australian Open and Indian Wells and a semifinal result in Rome. It has been a solid season for Muguruza, but not too spectacular. Can she turn it around in Roland Garros?
