A gripping encounter is on the cards between Taylor Townsend and Mirra Andreeva in the first round of the Madrid Open. Both players have made a decent start to their clay court swing and will be eager to make a significant impact in Madrid.

Townsend has put in the hard yards this year and chalked up impressive results in the singles category. She showcased her resilience by entering the main draw in Adelaide, Indian Wells and Miami via the qualification rounds. The American likes to play an aggressive brand of tennis and relies heavily on her serve.

Andreeva, on the contrary, is constantly improving on the main tour and is close to making a significant impact. She stunned the women's locker room with an outstanding win against former World No. 2 Ons Jabeur in Melbourne. The Russian is known for her brilliant technique, remarkable all-around game and effortless movement on the court.

Ultimately, the player who begins well and keeps a check on their errors will have the upper hand in this bout. While Townsend will make her debut in Madrid this year, Andreeva chalked up a solid fourth-round appearance in 2023. The youngster should be able to open her bag of tricks and pass this test in the first round.

Pick: Andreeva to win in straight sets.
