The rain in Shanghai has pushed several matches into Tuesday. I feel like have been researching them for hours. Oh, that’s because I have! There’s no way I am getting up for the early matches.
In Japan Davis will have her hands full with Bencic. They start at evens but I’d be on Bencic to get the faster start. She sems to be enjoying her tennis right now and has posted some very respectable stats in recent weeks. She pushed Kvitova close last week and has beaten Minella and Rodionova in the qualifying rounds.
I think Keys will trade higher than her SP of 1.53 I would expect her to come through for the win but wait for a higher entry. I can see this being 3 sets.
Anderson seems to be lacking in confidence and I am surprised to see him at 1.25 against Hanescu. He needs a couple of decent wins to get himself back on track. He has to be a lay at that price. He also didn’t look too impressive in hi doubles match earlier today.
