7:00 – Petkovic v Radwanska
Rankings are 35 and 9. Head to heads are 1-0 to Radwanska.
Neither player is setting the tennis world alight at the moment although Radwanska reached the final of the Mercury Insurance Open in August.
Radwanska has much better stats on serve but they are very even on stats against serve.
Petkovic’s second serve is a weakness that Radwanska will look to take advantage of.
Radwanska has a foot injury that gives her pain in her whole foot although it didn’t seem to trouble her in the last round.
That is probably the reason for her being 1.76 at the start.
Backing Radwanska on Petkovic’s first couple of service games could bring a decent profit. Other than that, scalping will work well. Look to take advantage of Petkovic’s weak second serve to increase our chances of the entry point being a good one. For example if Radwanska is 30-0 up against serve and Petkovic misses with her first serve then if we back Radwanska our chances of the entry point leading to a break of serve are increased.
I expect a simple victory for Radwanska.
