WTA Guangzhou: Kuznetsova v Wang

Due to start at 11:30 am

Kuznetsova 2.20, Wang 1.79

Kuznetsova has won all 3 of their previous matches. They last met in Istanbul on clay in April this year. She won in straight sets. Their only hard court match was at the Rio Olympics in 2016. That went to 3 sets.

Wang has better overall results in 2018. Hard court results are quite even with 63% of matches won. Their 3 month stats slightly favour Wang.

Kuznetsova started her last match really badly and lost the first 4 games. She lost the set and was also 3-1 down in set 2 before she started her recovery. She won a hard court title in Washington in July and has performed well on hard courts since then.

Qiang Wang

Qiang Wang

Wang reached the third round at the US Open where she lost in 2 tight sets to Svitolina. Last week in Hiroshima she reached the semi finals. She was very comfortable against Gibbs in the last round losing just 3 games.

I think we get 3 sets but have to favour Wang to win. Lay Kuznetsova if she breaks first. Lay the  set 1 winner.

Update: Wang was broken in the first game but broke straight back. She won 6-2, 6-2.

WTA Quebec City, Final: Parmentier v Pegula

Due to start at 4 pm

Parmentier 1.89, Pegula 2.08

This will be their first meeting.

Much stronger results for Pegula who has come through the qualifying rounds. She came back well against Kenin in the semi finals. She lost a tight opening set but bounced back to easily take set 2. The deciding set was a little messy and by the end of it both players were having problems holding serve.



Parmentier has found some form from nowhere this week. She has struggled with consistency this season. She beat Heather Watson in a third set tie break in the last round.  She beat Lepchenko in the quarter final. Lepchenko had also lifted her game this week but was beaten in straight sets.

Stats for the tournament favour Pegula on everything except service holds. Both have served well this week.

I favour Pegula to win this but Parmentier is proving to be a tough opponent so far. Lay Parmentier around 1.60 and remove liability at 2.20.  Three sets seem likely.

WTA Quebec City, Quarter Final: Lepchenko v Parmentier

Due to start at 6:30 pm

Lepchenko 1.86, Parmentier 2.14

Parmentier won their only previous meeting in May 2009 in Strasbourg. She won on clay in 2 tie breaks.

Better overall results for Lepchenko though she has won less than half her matches in 2018. She does struggle a little more than most with injuries but has been healthy recently and has performed fairly well. She has really lifted her game this week.  She beat Sabalenka in the first round in straight sets.

Varvara Lepchenko

Varvara Lepchenko

Parmentier has had a poor season. She has won just 17 of 44 matches in 2018 but has played well this week. She beat McHale in the last round. She usually performs well indoors but has not done so this season.

Stats for the week favour Lepchenko although Parmentier has better service hold numbers.

Back Lepchenko above 2.10. Three sets seem likely.
