10:00 – Peng v Medina Garrigues
Rankings are 52 and 23. Head to head is 1-0 to Peng.
Betfair has Peng as favourite at 1.67 but she retired with a wrist injury a couple of weeks ago. Medina Garrigues’ form seems to change totally mid-match. In her semi final last week she only held one service game in the first set but then came back to take the 2nd and 3rd sets fairly comfortably. She then lost the final easily to someone she should have beaten.
All this points to a good match for the 15-40 strategy.
If Peng’s wrist holds up I expect her to take the match.
Update: Peng’s wrist did hold out and she won 6-3, 6-3
