WTA AEGON International, 11:00 – Pironkova v Radwanska
Radwanska leads their previous matches 8-2. The most recent was at Wimbledon 2013. Radwanska won in 3 sets. Pironkova’s last win was on grass in 2012.
Three good wins for Pironkova so far. There were lots of breaks in her last 2 matches. She will need to improve her serve today.
Radwanska has been broken just once in her 2 matches. I think she will be put under more pressure than she has been so far and I will look to back her if she gets broken in the early part of the match.
WTA AEGON International, 12:30 – Bencic v Konta
Head to heads are 1-1. Their most recent meeting was at this event last year. Konta won in 2 sets.
Bencic beat Keys in the second round and then took the opening set from Bouchard. The Canadian was suffering pain from an abdominal strain and retired at 0-3 in their second set.
Konta is making the most of her Wild Card entry. She beat Makarova in straight sets. She made a fast start against Muguruza but almost let the set get taken away from her. A second break won it for her. Muguruza took it to a 3rd set but Konta played an excellent match.
Bencic has the edge here but I expect it to be close. I think Konta can take it to 3 sets.
Back Bencic if she goes a break behind.
