Naomi Osaka vs Greet Minnen Predictions


Naomi Osaka is finding her form after a long lay-off and doesn’t appear to enjoy playing on clay. Regardless, Greet Minnen’s 2nd serve has been so weak that I expect Osaka to win in straight sets.

Naomi Osaka Form


Naomi Osaka had a slow start to the season after taking a year off tennis. She improved in Doha where she went out to Karolina Pliskova in the quarter-finals.

The former World No.1 beat Top 20 players in Indian Wells and Miami but failed to get past the third round. She played one match at the Billy Jean King Cup, beating Yulia Putintseva 6-2 7-6.

Osaka disappointed in Rouen last week, losing 6-4 6-2 against Martina Trevisan in the first round.

Greet Minnen Form


Greet Minnen has been poor on the WTA Tour this year, unable to qualify or get past the second round in 11 tournaments.

The Belgian reached the Madrid Open main draw as a lucky loser.

The 26-year-old beat Darja Semenistaja 3-6 6-2 6-4 in the first qualifier. She then lost 2-6 7-6 6-1 to Emiliana Arango after winning 29% of her 2nd serves and saving 6/13 break points.

Verdict

Greet Minnen’s 2nd serve has been getting hammered, she enters the main draw as a lucky loser. Naomi Osaka should be kept safe on clay, a small stake on the former World No.1 winning in straight sets.
