Szavay v Bondarenko
Szavay is favourite at 1.70 . She is ranked 37 to her opponent’s 36 but is seeded 2 places higher than Bondarenko. Szavay is the local girl and will again have the support of the quiet crowd. Bondarenko surprised me yesterday in beating Peer although I think that was as mch down to Peer imploding as anything else.
Head to head is 1-1 and they have never met on clay
Probably a 3 setter and I would lean towards Bonarenko but scalping is the safest way to trade this. 15-40 will also work well.
Update: Wow! Incredible performance from Szavay. She played tennis WAY above her ranking. She was inspired by her home crowd and came through 6-1, 6-2. Bondarenko didn’t actually play that badly but just about everything the local girltried came off. Great to watch.
