This match could be a little one sided in favour of Hantuchova but Peer has the ability to put in a couple of quality matches in a week. She’ll need to do that to get near her opponent today.
Hantuchova is usually pretty solid against lower ranked players and I would expect her to win in straight sets.
15-40 is advised and if Hantuchova gets a lead allow a back bet to run to the end of the set.
