I am running a little behind this morning….
WTA French Open, 13:30 – Bencic v Keys
Solid win for Bencic over Hantuchova in the last round. She saved 4 of the 5 break points she faced.
Keys only saved 1 of the 4 break points she faced but also served well over all.
This could be quite an even match. The value is on Bencic. We will see Keys trade higher but if her ground strokes are as strong as they can be she will come through in 3 sets. Lay Keys below 1.4
WTA French Open, 15:00 – Watson v Stephens
Watson leads the head to heads 4-0. The most recent was this season on a hard court and she won in 2 sets.
Stephens seems to try harder in the big tournaments. She was very impressive in her win over Venus. She won in straight sets.
Watson’s serve will need to improve from her first match. I think Stephens gets her first win over Watson today but we may see 3 sets. Stephens has really stepped up the intensity of the past 2 weeks.
Back Stephens when she goes an early break behind. Its almost guaranteed that she will!
