Have a look at yesterday’s 04may2015pd
WTA Mutua Madrid Open, 14:00 – Pliskova v Garcia
Pliskova leads 1-0. That match was in 2013 on a hard court and she won in 3 sets.
Very impressive season from Pliskova so far. She won the title last week and had an easy first round win this week.
Garcia started the year very well. She has faded just a little in the last few weeks but managed a quarter final in Stuttgart two weeks ago. She served fairly well in her first round win over Lucic Baroni.
Pliskova had a few weeks off before the clay season so shouldn’t be too affected by her long week last week. This could be a 3 setter as Pliskova only had 1 straight sets win last week. She has an excellent record in deciding sets.
I want a better price on Pliskova just in case we go to a decider. She starts around 1.62 .
WTA Mutua Madrid Open, 19:00 – Suarez Navarro v Goerges
Goerges leads the head to heads 2-1. They haven’t played since 2010. Suarez Navarro won their only previous clay court match.
Suarez Navarro was ranked 60th when they last met and is now a top 10 player. She had a very solid win in the first round over Diyas. She served well and faced just 2 break points and being broken once. She reached the third round last year.
Goerges has come through the qualifying rounds and beat Erakovic in the first round of the main draw in 3 sets. She will need her second serve to be stronger than it has been in her last 2 matches as Suarez Navarro will put real pressure on it.
I will back Suarez Navarro if she goes an early break and a hold behind.
