The problem with big tournaments is that you quickly come up against the best players on the circuit when you are not ranked highly. Caroline Garcia is no exception to the rule and will have to face an extremely strong player, Simona Halep. The Frenchwoman has always found it difficult to counter the Romanian's game. She has only managed to beat her once in seven matches. Halep, winner of Roland Garros and Wimbledon, is a player who moves very well on the court and is very difficult to break. It would be a real feat for Caro Garcia to win this round as she has had such a difficult start to the year. Of course, she has lost to good players this season: Osaka, Mertens (twice). But she lost her tennis against players who were well within her reach, such as Doi, Sevastova and Golubic. She was even found in tears on her chair at the Lyon Open against Golubic, demoralised and frustrated at not being able to play her tennis. If the Frenchwoman plays at her best, she will be able to hold off the world number three, but does she really have the means? The question is whether Simona Halep is at 100%. After her withdrawal from Dubai due to lower back pain, she said two days ago that she was "struggling with her shoulder". As for Caro Garcia, she gave her best performance in a while against Buzarnescu. She was quite comfortable on serve and was efficient with her shots. By reproducing such a match, Garcia will have the weapons to upset Halep, who could be lacking in rhythm.

Alizé Cornet managed to get out of the Kuznetsova trap with authority in the first round. Even if the Frenchwoman said she was "satisfied with her performance", it should be noted that the Russian was injured in her left thigh. In addition, Cornet had problems with her second ball, especially in the first set, winning only 18% of her points. Against a player like Kvitova, this could be very costly. The Frenchwoman has always struggled against the Czech. She has never won against her in three matches. Will Cornet's fighting spirit be enough to counter Kvitova's power and return quality? Kvitova, who won the title in Doha, is one of the potential winners of the Miami tournament. To stay in the match, Cornet will have to serve very well and manage her weak moments. This is the only condition for her to have a (small) chance of making it through.
