Lucic Baroni 1.90, Rogers 2.08
Lucic Baroni has won both their previous matches. They last met in Charleston, USA on clay in April 2017. She won in 3 sets. The other match was in Acapulco, Mexico in February 2017. She won on a hard court in straight sets.
Lucic Baroni’s hard court results are much stronger over the last 12 months. She won 58% of her matches compared to 47% from Rogers. She reached the semi finals of the Australian Open last year. Lots of pressure to defend the ranking points as that was the only time she won a main draw match in Melbourne.
Rogers reached the third round of all the slams in 2017 except the Australian Open. She reached the 2nd round but beat Halep in the 1st round.
Back Lucic Baroni if she gets broken first or loses the opening set.
