WTA Indian Wells: Wickmayer v Gavrilova, 22:15

Wickmayer 2.42, Gavrilova 1.68

Gavrilova has won both their previous matches.  The last time they played was in this tournament last year. Gavrilova won in straight sets. Their other match was on grass in 2012 which Gavrilova also won in 2 sets.

Wickmayer has better results this year. She has won 11 of her 15 matches. On hard courts they are more even. Wickmayer leads 73% v 70% matches won.


Wickmayer has come through the qualifying rounds this week. In the main draw she beat American Kayla Day in straight sets. She has not lost a set so far.

Gavrilova reached the semi finals in Acapulco last week. She lost to eventual champion Tsurenko.  Last year she lost to Svitolina in the second round.

I expect a close match but have to favour Gavrilova. Back her above 1.90.

Update: Gavrilova won 7-6, 6-2. She was broken in the first game of the match.
