WTA Hong Kong Open, 11:00 – Wang v McHale
The 12 month hard court stats favour Wang. Stats against common opponents in the same time period favour McHale.
Wang has recent wins over Hradecka and Babos.
McHale has had a lot of her matches that she started as favourite go to 3 sets.
This could easily go to a 3rd set. Back McHale if she goes a break behind.
WTA Generali Ladies Linz, 20:30 – Koukalova v Allertova
Koukalova won 3 qualifying matches including a win over in form Konta. Konta only found out today that Schmiedlova had withdrawn so wouldn’t have known she had a place in the main draw.
Allertova reached the final in China 2 weeks ago, losing to Jankovic. She beat Halep and Errani along the way.
Koukalova has been in poor form before this tournament. Allertova is good enough to give her a strong match even if Koukalova finds form.
Back Allertova above 2.00 .
