Due to start at 6:30 pm
Van Uytvanck 1.73, Swiatek 2.34
This will be their first meeting.
Overall results favour Swiatek although she plays ITF events. Her best results have been in ITF clay tournaments. She did make it to the second round at the Australian Open as a qualifier in January. She also came through the qualifying rounds this week and beat out of form Danilovic in straight sets in the main draw.
Van Uytvanck won this title last year. She has not been in great form so far in 2019 but did play well to beat Zvonareva in the last round. I had expected Zvonareva to give her some problems and the Russian recovered in both sets from being a break behind. She had a great chance to take the opening set but wasted the opportunity. After being 2-0 down in set 2 she went into a 4-2 lead but just couldn’t keep the lead.
Back Van Uytvanck around 1.90.
