WTA Rome Day 3 Predictions, including Gauff vs Frech

Day 3 of the WTA 1000 event in Rome will feature some exciting matches, with Round 2 of the top half of the draw taking place. Among the star-studded line-up is Coco Gauff, who will make her tournament debut on Thursday and is looking to find top form ahead of Roland Garros.

WTA Rome Day 3 Predictions

Linda Noskova vs. Lucrezia Stefanini

Head to head: first meeting

The 29th seed has struggled since her fantastic win over Iga Swiatek in Melbourne and her clay campaign has been very lackluster so far. However, she is fortunate enough to have drawn one of the lowest ranked players in the draw, #179 Lucrezia Stefanini, so regardless of her struggles, she should be able to pull through here.
Prediction: Noskova in 3

Elina Avanesyan vs. Jaqueline Cristian

Head to head: first meeting

In terms of ranking and level, it is perhaps the closest match of the day, without the two players really being separated. Cristian is somewhat lucky to be in this round, as she lost in qualifying, but replaces a seed in the draw as a lucky loser, so she goes straight to the second round. Maybe she can take this opportunity to run here.

Ana Bogdan vs. Marketa Vondrousova

Head to head: Vondrousova 1-1 Bogdan


Vondrousva hasn’t had a good season so far, with some disappointing runs and only her run to the Stuttgart semi-finals is a good run for the level of player she is. However, she remains one of the best players in the world and should be able to beat Bogdan here and reach the next round.
Prediction: Vondrousova in 3

Coco Gauff vs. Magdalena Frech

Head to head: Gauff 1-0 Frech

Gauff has been disappointing so far this clay court season, but with the level she showed in previous years she is certainly one of the favorites at Roland Garros and this is her last chance to gain some momentum. When the pair faced each other at the Australian Open earlier this year, Gauff won in very easy fashion and the same should happen here.
Prediction: Cool in 2
