Barty won the title in Adelaide in January and reached the semi finals at the Australian Open where she lost 7-6, 7-5 to eventual champion Sofia Kenin. This week she had a comfortable win over Laura Siegemund in the first round. She was due to meet Elena Rybakina in the second round but Rybakina finally ran out of steam after a superb start to the season. She withdrew before the match.

Muguruza has also made a great start to 2020. She reached the semi final in Shenzhen and the quarter finals in Hobart in January. She reached the Australian Open Final where she lost in 3 sets to Sofia Kenin. In February she made the quarter finals in Dubai last week.

We have some value on Muguruza and we may get 3 sets. Back Barty around 1.95 to 2.10.
