10:00 – Bartoli v Li
Rankings are 13 and 10. Head to heads are 1-0 to Bartoli.
Bartoli seems to be in slightly better form than her opponent. Normally I would have expected Li to be around 1.70 but the Betfair market has them at evens which I feel reflects Bartoli’s recent performances.
Bartoli has served well this week losing just 5 games in 4 sets.
Li had a tough match in the last round against Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez which was 6-4 in the 3rd set so Bartoli may have a slight edge if this one goes the distance.
Look for scalping and 15-40 opportunities. This could easily be a 3 setter.
Update:Bartoli won the first and Li levelled with the second. A surprisingly one sided 3rd set saw Li going through.
Li won 3-6, 7-5, 6-0.
