Russian Ludmila Samsonova is having a fantastic 2021, on the brink of the top 50 with a 30-17 record.

Her form has really picked up in the grass court season, and from Berlin in June onwards she’s got a 14-4 record which includes a Wimbledon Round of 16 appearance. Samsonova beat Katie Boulter 6-3 6-2 in her opening match at the US Open.

Her opponent in the second round is Belgian Greetje Minnen, who caused a first-round upset over Nadia Podoroska 6-4 1-6 6-3. Although the Argentine is ranked 37th in the world, she plays her best tennis on the clay with a 10-12 record on hard courts in 2021.

Minnen’s form line is strong in terms of wins and losses, but her quality of opposition has been underwhelming. Against top-100 opposition in 2021, her record is just 3-9 including the win over Podoroska.

Minnen leads Samsonova 2-0 in their head-to-head meetings. 

Verdict

Samsonova continues to play strong tennis and will cover the 3.5 game handicap in this.
