Maria definitely has a chance to gain some good wins early on, but it will be tough, she needs to play her best, no doubt.
Maria wasn't in top form atall
She actually played pretty shitty all week in Rome, except maybe the match against Kerber.
I do think this will be tougher than the Rome match and maybe go to 3, but I just have a hard time seeing Venus even if she's on fire having the consistency to keep up with Maria for a whole match.
