Should be a close match. Better recent form from Petkovic
Lepchenko 2.10, Petkovic 1.89
Lepchenko won their only previous meeting. That was at the French Open in May 2017. She won on clay in 3 sets.
They have very similar overall results for last 12 months. This year Petkovic has made a slightly better start to the season. Neither player has played many clay matches in the last year.
Petkovic won this title in 2014 and made the semi finals in 2015. The American green clay courts play more like slowish hard courts. Her hard court results are a little stronger this year. He reached the second round as a qualifier in Miami.
Lepchenko has made the 3rd round in Charleston a couple of times. She has struggled to find consistency this season.
Back Petkovic above 2.10.
