THE PREDICTION

Number one seed Simona Halep is the red-hot favourite for the French Open title and now takes on compatriot Irina-Camelia Begu for a place in the third round, and it is difficult to see anything other than a straightforward victory for the 2018 champion. The pair have met seven times before with Halep victorious on all those occasions and she is carrying plenty of confidence from winning her last three tournaments in Dubai (prior to the suspension of the tour), Prague and Rome. The most recent match between the two actually came in the aforementioned tournament in Prague last month and Begu managed to take Halep to a tie-break in the first set so she knows what it takes to compete with her compatriot. Halep is simply on a different level though, and even though the colder-than-usual conditions gave her some problems in her first-round win over Sara Sorribes Tormo, she is still heavily fancied to record a straight-sets win.
