This will be their first meeting.
Makarova had to make a come back in the opening set with Errani. She was 2-5 down but won the next5 games. She easily took set 2. She reached the 3rd round in Rio losing in 3 sets to Kvitova. She will be defending 4th round points next week at the US Open.
Sevastova played very well yesterday to beat Gibbs and didn’t face a single break point. She had to come through 3 qualifying rounds and all 3 matches went to a deciding set..
I think there is a chance that Makarova will be happy with playing 2 matches this week. Its worth a lay at around 1.25 on her. Remove the liability if she gets broken
