Due to start at Midnight
Diyas 1.49, Krunic 3.00
Diyas has won both their previous matches. Their most recent match was in an ITF grass final in June 2017. She won in straight sets. The other match was at the Australian Open in 2014. That one went to 3 sets.
Better overall results for Diyas last year. Krunic was very poor on hard courts. Diyas leads 58% v 30% matches won on hard in the last 12 months.
Diyas beat Strycova last week in the Sydney qualifying rounds before losing to in form Putintseva.
Krunic has lost both her 2019 matches. She started as favourite against McHale in Brisbane and against Hon in Sydney.
Back Diyas around 1.70.
Update: Diyas was broken in the first game of the match and easily hit our target price early in set 1 and she went on to take the set. In set 2 she was three times a break of serve ahead but was broken back each time. She was broken again and lost the set. Vekic took set 3 and won 3-6, 7-5, 6-1.
Plenty of chances to take a nice profit from this one.
