For the right to play in the quarter-finals of the tournament in Lyon on March 4, Caroline Garcia and Ysaline Bonaventure will compete.
Isalin Bonaventure is invincible on indore, at least this year. 6 wins for 6 meetings held on this surface on the account of the Belgian. It can’t be said that the level of her rivals was very high, but also not entirely low. At the futures in France in early January, she beat Manon Arcangioli, Olga Govortsova, Magdalena Frech and in the final closed Arantxa Rus. In addition, here in Lyon, she has already passed the first round, beating the rather promising Marta Kostyuk in two sets without any problems. Now she has to play against the mistress of the courts Caroline Garcia.

At a home tournament in Lyon, Caroline Garcia managed to break off a series of three defeats this season.
The win over Minnen was not easy for the French player (6-4, 1-6, 7-6). In the second set, Garcia suffered a serious decline. In the third installment, the opponent went with a break, but didn’t bring the matter to win. It’s obviously too early to say that Garcia overcame a protracted recession in the game.
Caroline spent the first few months of the new season very weak, which is why she came even closer to the WTA ranking top 50. There is nothing critical, but it’s not entirely clear what the similar decline of the 26-year-old performer is connected with. Garcia began to make absolutely unnecessary mistakes when trying to finish the rallies in 2-3 hits, and also noted the terrible implementation of break chances.
Belgian player Ysaline Bonaventure feels great on the fast pavement in the halls. This season, she already has a win in France at the ITF tournament.
In the opening match in Lyon against Marta Kostyuk, Ysaline was not at all afraid of the aggressive play of the Ukrainian tennis player. Acted much more reliably, without the need didn’t risk. As a result, she got a well-deserved win in two sets (6-4, 6-4).
Due to her very specific play-style, the Belgian rarely imposes serious resistance to top rivals. It’s important for her that the opponents make mistakes, because her whole game is aimed at reliable ball retention in the court and high-quality execution on the back line. Having caught a certain courage, the 122nd racket of the world is able to repel the sharpest attacks of her counterparts, although globally Bonaventure looks extremely one-sided and is not effective in most WTA series competitions.
Garcia vs Bonaventure Predictions
Beating Garcia, a confident player in the top 50 of recent seasons, for Bonaventure will be a difficult task. However, the Frenchlady is not in the best shape. The Australian season spent poorly. Here in Lyon, with great difficulty, she defeated Greet Minnen in the first round, losing a set (1-6). On the other hand, everyone knows the true level of Caroline, which is many times superior to the ability of Bonaventure. The Belgian is still not even so good at indore as to beat rivals from the top 50. The home tournament should help Garcia find his game and his rhythm, so it’s worth playing from it. We bet on Garcia win.
- Our prediction: Caroline Garcia Win.
