Bonaventure 2.10, Hsieh 1.81
This will be their first meeting. Qualifier Ysaline Bonaventure had a good second half of 2017 and finished inside the top 200. She played mainly on the ITF tour but won 68% of her matches. She won 70% of her hard court matches in 2017. This week she has come through the qualifying rounds and then beat Putintseva in straight sets in the main draw.
Su-Wei Hsieh struggled a little last season and won 52% of her matches. Most of her success came on hard courts.This week she beat Nao Hibino in straight sets as underdog in the first round.
Hsieh has a lot more experience but Bonaventure has built up some real momentum in the last 12 months. I will lay Hsieh if she breaks first or takes the opening set. We have some value on Bonaventure to take at least a set.
I have a feeling Bonaventure has a great chance to take this match.
