French Open Tennis Day 14 Picks 2016- Women's Final (June 4th)

The Friday Semi Finals are in the books and it was a very good day for the picks in what has been a tough tournament to date.

Now we are left with just two matches in the French Open 2016 as the Women's and Men's Finals have been set and hopefully the tournament will have two that at least end this Grand Slam with some really positive memories.

At the moment the overriding feeling out of the French Open is the stresses the organisers had to go through earlier in the week and the disappointing decisions made for some players who felt they were forced to play in sub-par conditions. There will be a hope that two memorable Finals will at least have this tournament remembered for something a little more positive.

Garbine Muguruza + 2.5 games v Serena Williams: I guess I shouldn't be surprised that Serena Williams is the favourite to win this Grand Slam Final against Garbine Muguruza, but that looks wrong to me. If you have watched any of the last few days at the French Open, you can't have too many doubts that the better tennis is being played by the Spaniard who also has previous having beaten Serena here at Roland Garros to really announce herself on the professional Tour.

There will be nerves, but Muguruza has to look back at the experience of the Wimbledon Final to give her a chance to win this French Open. She might have lost that Grand Slam Final last year, but the experiences should give Muguruza a chance to avenge that defeat to Serena Williams.

I also can't ignore the fact that Serena Williams looks to be carrying some sort of injury which Kiki Bertens may have taken advantage of if she was fully fit in the Semi Final. The injury can't be rested by Serena as she is playing for the third straight day and she can't hope that Muguruza is not healthy as Bertens was on Friday.

The big hitting game of Muguruza can expose some of the movement issues that Williams has been having and this looks a match that is very much on the racquet of the Spaniard. That might be strange to say considering how much power and experience Williams has, but I do think the World Number 1 would have been beaten if she had faced Muguruza in the last two Rounds with the performances she produced.

Maybe Williams can magically come out and be at 100% but even then this would be a tough match for her and I like Muguruza with the games and I expect the Spaniard will win her first Grand Slam title on Saturday.
