WTA Wuhan Open, 09:00 – Errani v Garcia
Garcia leads their previous matches 2-1. The most recent was in February this year. That was in the Fed Cup on clay and Errani won in 2 sets.
Errani leads the 12 months stats apart from service holds. Garcia’s best chance is to attack the serve as she knows her own serve will come under a lot of pressure.
Expect many breaks of serve. Errani to win in 3 sets.
Lay Garcia when she goes a break ahead.
WTA Wuhan Open, 11:30 – Strycova v Sharapova
Sharapova won both their previous matches. Their most recent was in June 2010 on grass. She won in 2 sets.
Sharapova hasn’t played since her semi final at Wimbledon. Strycova hasn’t been at her best on the hard courts in recent tournaments.
Sharapova has to be a little rusty and is likely to start slowly. If we get an early low price on Sharapova I will lay her but I don’t want to back her so low with her form being totally unknown.
Lay Sharapova around 1.10
