Today’s blog previews will be up shortly…
Well, a little later than intended. Just spent 3 hours trying to find my dog! Little bugger.
Not many matches worth bothering with so I’ll be back tomorrow.
WTA Internazionali BNL d’Italia, 20:00 – V Williams v Siniakova
It was a second round finish last year for Venus. She only plays the French Open and the Premier events on clay.
Siniakova is a decent clay player and has shown good recent form. She can throw in a poor performance on serve at any time.
Venus really should be too strong for her but clay isn’t the American’s best surface. I think Siniakova can keep the sets close and may even nick a set.
No value at 1.33 . This is one to watch before entering. If Venus looks strong but Siniakova gets an early break I will back Venus.
