00:45 – Hibino v Goerges
This will be their first meeting.
The 12 month hard court stats are better for Hibino apart from service holds.
Hibino has had 2 very tough 3 setters winning both of them 7-5 in the third. She is having to work very hard to hold serve. She faced 16 break points in her last match and was broken 5 times.
Goerges has been impressive this week and hasn’t dropped a set.
I think if Hibino can keep her powerful ground strokes in the court then she can force errors from Goerges. it could easily go to 3 sets.
I fancy an upset in this one. Lay Goerges if she gets the break first.
