This will be their first meeting.
These players have very similar overall results this year but Bellis has a much better ROI. She has also been stronger on hard courts. She has won 64% of her hard court matches in 2017 compared to 60% for Garcia.
Bellis lost the opening set to Goerges in the first round but fought back well. She then beat Kuznetsova in straight sets in the last round. Her first serve percentage was high at 76% and she won 74% of points on that first serve. She faced just 3 break points and was broken once.
Garcia’s toughest match was in the first round against Cirstea. She came through a scrappy third set with many breaks of serve. She served well against Lepchenko in the last round and didn’t face a break point.
They start very evenly priced. I have to favour Bellis. I’d prefer to back her at 2.20 or better.
