Due to start at midnight
Puig 1.91, Collins 2.06
Previous head to heads are 1-1. The last time they played was in Miami last season on a hard court. Collins won in 3 sets. Puig’s win was also on a hard court in 2 sets in 2017.
Their 12 month results are quite even in the last 12 months. Collins has better 2019 results and a much higher ROI. Both players have decent clay records.
Collins was comfortable in the first round but had to fight hard in the next 2 rounds. She beat Kanepi in 2 sets as underdog in the last round. She was put under a fair amount of pressure by Aliona Bolsova Zadoinov in the second round.
Puig has really raised her level this week. She beat in form Sofia Kenin and Aryna Sabalenka although both those players are not at their best on clay.
This will be very tight and we have a good chance of seeing 3 sets. I give Puig the edge based mainly on their stats for the week.
Back Puig around 2.20
