WTA Birmingham: Martic v Buzarnescu

Due to start at 4 pm

Martic 1.72, Buzarnescu 2.34

Martic won their only previous meeting. That was in the Wimbledon qualifying rounds last season. She won in straight sets.

Martic has slightly better results this season although Buzarnescu has played more matches. Martic’s grass results are also stronger. She reached the 4th round at Wimbledon  as a qualifier last season.

Buzarnescu has had a good season. She reached the final in Hobart in the second week of the season. That was on a hard court but most of her other successful weeks on the main WTA tour were on clay. She did reach the quarter finals on grass in Nottingham last week. This week she has beaten Babos in 3 sets.

This should be a good match but I am going with Martic to win. Back her above 1.95.

Update: Martic took the opening set with a single break and Buzarnescu did the same in set 2.  In the deciding set Martic had a 2-1 lead but didn’t win another game.

Buzarnescu won 4-6, 6-3, 6-2
