World No. 15 Victoria Azarenka will square off against Jil Teichmann in the third round of the French Open on Friday.

Victoria Azarenka started the season in good form. She reached the quarterfinals in Adelaide and the fourth round at the Australian Open. However, Azarenka has struggled with consistency since her campaigns Down Under.

She lost in the third round at the Indian Wells and Miami Open, losing to Elena Rybakina and Linda Fruhvirtova, respectively.

Azarenka played two claycourt events heading into the French Open and made the round of 16 in both tournaments in Madrid and Rome. She played well in the initial rounds of the tournament but couldn't sustain her level and lost to in-form Amanda Anisimova and Iga Swiatek, respectively.

After a tough first-round victory against Ana Bogdan at the French Open, Azarenka's form picked up in the second round as she cruised to a 6-1, 7-6(3) win over Andrea Petkovic. She moved into the third round of the French Open with a 6-1, 7-6(3) win over Andrea Petkovic. The two-time Grand Slam champion made only 13 unforced errors and won 88% of the points she played at the net against the former top-10 player.

Jil Teichmann, meanwhile, has had a good season so far. After an early exit in Melbourne to Azarenka herself, the Swiss made the quarterfinals at the Dubai Tennis Championships with solid wins over Elise Mertens and Elina Svitolina.

On clay, Teichmann has looked in praiseworthy form, making the semifinals in Madrid and the quarterfinals in Rome. She was forced to retire due to a thigh injury at the Italian Open against Daria Kasatkina.

However, Teichmann has recovered quite well and has breezed past her first two opponents at the French Open.

Victoria Azarenka vs Jil Teichmann Prediction

Azarenka will be the slight favorite entering this match. The 2013 Roland Garros semifinalist looked rather impressive with her net play in her last match. She could look to adopt a similar tactic and move forward at every opportunity against Teichmann.

The stage is set for the Swiss to make it into the fourth round of a Grand Slam. Teichmann's favorite surface is clay and she has the game to trouble opponents on the red dirt. She is consistent from the baseline and does not leak unforced errors. Being a left gives her an added advantage, especially on serve.

Although she's an excellent player on clay, she might find Azarenka a hard nut to crack. The Belarusian has looked in great nick and might just be able to get the job done and reach the second week of the Paris Major.

Pick: Azarenka to win in straight sets
