Due to start at midnight
V. Williams 2.72, Keys 1.56
Head to heads are 2-2. Their most recent match was in Canada in July 2016 on a hard court. Keys won in 3 sets. Their last 3 matches were on hard courts and went to a deciding set. Keys won 2 of them.
Overall results are pretty even in the last 12 months and also in 2019 but favour Venus. She has a bigger lead on hard courts.
Madison Keys has beaten Halep and Muguruza in 3 sets this week. She has had poor results since reaching the quarter finals at the French Open in May. Her form improved a little last week but she lost against Vekic from a winning position. She reached the quarter finals last year.
Venus Williams beat Bertens and Vekic in 3 sets. She has been inconsistent in recent weeks but has also lifted her level this week.
Stats for the tournament are very close. Keys has better service holds. This looks like being another 3 setter. Lay Keys around 1.35 to 1.40 and remove liability at 1.80. Lay set 1 winner. I give Venus a slight edge to win a tight match.
