A gripping encounter is on the cards between Sofia Kenin and Caroline Garcia in the second round of the French Open. Both players will be determined to continue their run in Paris.

Kenin has shown glimpses of her top potential in the last few months. She possesses the skill set to challenge the top players on tour but could be more consistent at the highest level. The American is known for her steady all-around game and accurate groundstrokes off both wings.

Garcia, on the contrary, has yet to add to her trophy cabinet since winning the WTA Finals in 2022. She has a solid record on clay and hardly has a bad day at the office. The Frenchwoman is known for her formidable all-around game and high-tactical acumen on court.

Ultimately, the player who holds their nerve during crucial moments and keeps a check on their errors will have the upper hand in this bout. Considering their record on clay and recent results on tour, Garcia will be a slight favorite to continue her run in Paris. She should be able to dig deep and edge past Kenin in the second round.

Pick: Garcia to win in three sets.
