Due to start at 4 pm
Siniakova 1.59, Pera 2.58
Siniakova has won both their previous matches. They last played in Sydney in January this year. She won on a hard court in straight sets. Both their matches were on hard courts.
Over all results are a little better for Pera. Their 12 month hard court results favour Siniakova. They are even in 2019.
Pera was given a wild card this week. She has been the underdog in both rounds. Kudermetova had a really poor match in the first round and took just 2 games from Pera. Strycova gave her a few more problems and took their first set. Pera then took control and lost just 3 more games.
Siniakova has been serving better than usual this week. Yafan Wang had a pretty bad day on serve in the first round. Five double faults and she won just 7 of her 27 second serve points. In the second round Potapova was injured and retired when 6-0, 3-0 behind.
Pera can be competitive and can take this to 3 sets. Lay Siniakova if she breaks first. Back her around 1.90.
