Ons Jabeur 1.77, Jennifer Brady 2.28
Second Round. Due to start around 5:30 pm
Head to heads are 1-1. They last met in October in Tianjin, China. Jabeur won in straight sets on a hard court. Brady also won on a hard court In Cincinnati in August. She won that one in 2 sets.
Stronger 12 month results for Brady. Her hard court results in the same period are also better. She has won 12 of her 15 hard court matches in 2020. In January she reached the quarter finals in Brisbane as a qualifier. Last week she reached the semi finals as a qualifier. This week she beat Alison Riske in a third set tie break. She is likely to tire if she is still around at the end of the week.
Jabeur has won 13 of her 17 matches this season. She reached the quarter finals at the Australian Open. Her 2020 numbers are boosted a little by her 4 wins in Fed Cup over very low ranked opponents at the start of the month. This week she beat Siniakova in 2 sets
Some value on Brady as underdog. We have a decent chance of seeing 3 sets. Lay Jabeur around 1.50 and remove some or all liability at 2.00. Lay the set 1 winner.
