TennisSection previews the 2021 French Open as Garbine Muguruza (12) meets Marta Kostyuk in the Round of 128 on Monday, May 31st 2021.
Will Marta Kostyuk cause a big upset in the Round of 128 here at Roland Garros? Will Garbine Muguruza dominate in her first match here to ensure she is ready to fight in a very tough side of the draw? Garbine Muguruza has been handed a very tough draw, and I am sure she wants to waste little time on court to ensure she has energy for tougher opponents, but she needs to ensure Marta Kostyuk is not able to cause the upset here first.
Marta Kostyuk is not really known among the casual WTA fans as she is still quite young and she is ranked 81stin the world. Marta Kostyuk, although her ranking is low, has still gained a lot of experience over the last couple of years, playing over 170 matches and winning 115 of them. Marta Kostyuk will definitely be a star of the future, and a top 30 player if she is able to maintain this level of consistency as she begings to play in bigger and bigger tournaments. However, Kostyuk has been drawn against an always tough to play Garbine Muguruza in the Round of 128 at the 2021 French Open.
Garbine Muguruza is one of the toughest players to beat on the WTA Tour. The Spaniard is very tall, has a massive serve, and is a great mover around the court. In 2021, Garbine Muguruza has won 23 matches, lost 7 matches, and won 1 title along the way. Garbine will know that if she is at her best here at Roland Garros 2021, she will definitely have a chance to win the title and her 2nd French Open title. Garbine however is in a very tough side of the draw, and she will have to fight her way through to the end. I am sure Muguruza will not want to waste time on court against the likes of Mart Kostyuk to ensure she has the energy for tougher matches, and I am confident in her doing just that.
Garbine Muguruza and Marta Kostyuk have never met before, with this being their first meeting. Although Marta Kostyuk has been consistent in her young career, and she is rising up the rankings, she is still nowhere near the level required to compete with someone of the calibre of Garbine Muguruza. Garbina is a Roland Garros champion and she loves playing on clay. I expect for her to come out here ready to give it her best tennis from the start and take his match in straight sets.
