Belinda Bencic 1.49, Venus Williams 2.98
Due to start around 11 am
Venus Williams leads their previous matches 4-1. Their last meeting was at th Australian Open last season. Bencic won in straight sets on a hard court. All their matches have ended in 2 sets.
Venus was a set and a break up in the last round against Barbora Strycova but came close to losing the match. In the end she came through a messy 3rd set 7-5. Since reaching the quarter finals in Cincinnati in August she has not been at her best. She started the season well enough but since March has struggled for consistency.
Bencic has better overall results in the last 12 months and also in 2019. Her hard court results are also stronger. She reached the semi finals at the US Open losing in 2 very tight sets to eventual champion Bianca Andreescu. She has been much more consistent than her opponent and has performed well on all surfaces.
I have to give the edge to Bencic. Back her around 1.85. Chance of 3 sets.
