On March 5 the match of the second round of the WTA tournament will be held in Lyon. Twenty-six-year-old German Anna-Lena Friedsam and twenty-six-year-old French Kristina Mladenovic will meet.
Mladenovic continues to perform extremely inexpressively and unstable on the tour. After all, the French can’t even play a few matches on the same level in the tournament. For this reason, it is difficult to expect anything concrete from her. Kristina has to improve her steadyness in a home tournament?

Anna-Lena Fridzam had 30 fights last season, in which the German broke the resistance of her rivals 17 times. Including on the hard, the athlete won seven triumphs with five defeats. This season, Anna-Lena played 10 matches, defeated her opponents six times. This year the German athlete reached the quarterfinals at the competition in ITF W60 Andrezieux-Boutheon.
Anna-Lena Fridzam is now in 136th place in the WTA world ranking. Once the German was in the top 100, but an injury prevented her from achieving some serious results and three years later Anna-Lena is still trying to get back to her former positions. In recent tournaments Fridsam is not happy with the results, almost always takes off in the second round, and no matter what opponent he plays against, the strong Rus or a tennis player not even in the top-200 rating. In the starting match of the tournament in Lyon Friedsam won her first match against Russian Komardina (6:2, 6:2), but objectively, Komardina is a very weak opponent and this victory is not an indicator at all.
Last season Kristina Mladenovic played in 64 fights and in 36 she was successful. On the hard court, the French racket won 22 games with twenty defeats. In 2020, Christina participated in 11 matches, losing in five of them.
Kristina Mladenovic is currently ranked 42nd in the world. Not everything is going well with the French in recent years, but in some individual tournaments Kristina shows a good game. Her maximum this season was in the 1/8 finals in Dubai. In the recent tournament in the Emirates, Mladenovic won four matches and lost only to Pliskova.
In Lyon it was not easy, but still Kristina did managed to win her match against pretty weak opponent. In the 1/16 finals of the home tournament in Lyon, Mladenovic defeated her compatriot Chloe Paquet (1:6, 6:2, 6:4). In my opinion, in her homeland Mladenovic can show something similar to the game in Dubai.
Friedsam vs Mladenovic Predictions
Friedsam is not the easiest opponent, especially on indoor hard, where the ball bounces quickly and low, which is ideal for her attacking tennis. It’s worth noting that both girls act aggressively on the court and the first number, so it’s unlikely that anyone will be able to dominate in this manner throughout the meeting.
We believe, Mladenovic should win this match, she plays at home, with the support of her fans, Kristina is also ahead in her personal meetings, and Friedsam has not shown something incredible in her recent matches.
- Our prediction: Kristina Mladenovic Win.
