TennisSection previews the 2021 French Open as Jennifer Brady (13) meets Anastasija Sevastova in the Round of 128 on Tuesday, June 1st 2021.
Will Anastasija Sevastova be able to swing together some important wins for her season as she looks to continue improving her level? Will Jennifer Brady show us why she is a Grand Slam Finalist and get this match under her belt in a strong fashion? Both players can win this match here at Roland Garros 2021, but only one will make their way to the Round of 64. Who will it be?
Anastasija Sevastova is having a late resurgence in her career in 2021, having played some strong tennis this year. At 31 years old, many would have counter her out of many matches she won, and she now boasts a 15/10 W/L record this year. Anastastija Sevastova is a fighter and she will want to get some solid minutes of play under her belt in the last clay tournament of the year here at the 2021 French Open. However, Anastasija Sevastova will have to be at her absolute best as she now meets the 2021 Australian Open Finalist in Jennifer Brady who will be determined to continue making strong moves on the WTA Tour.
Jennifer Brady has had a great season this year, with her highlight being reaching the Final of the 2021 Australian Open. However, on clay, Jennifer Brady has struggled to make into the later stages of tournaments. Most recently, Brady had to withdraw from the Round of 32 match at the Rome Open due to a potential injury. Some might look at that as a negative thing, but in reality it is a positive thing as she knows that she needed to rest and practice more to ensure she does not get injured before Roland Garros. Now that Brady is here at the 2021 French Open, I am sure that Brady is ready to impress at yet another Grand Slam, but she needs to ensure she prevents the upset by Anastasija Sevastova.
Jennifer Brady and Anastasija Sevastova have never met before, with this being their first meeting. Although Anastasija Sevastova is the much more experienced player, Jennifer Brady has had the bigger accomplishments in 2021. It will definitely be a tight match in the Round of 128 of Roland Garros 2021 just because Brady is not as comfortable as others on clay, but I still see the American getting the win here and making her way to the Round of 64. Jennifer Brady will win this match in 3 tight sets.
