WTA Dubai: Konta v Kasatkina, 3:30pm

Konta 1.46, Kasatkina 3.10

Konta won their only previous meeting. That was in January 2017 in Sydney. She won in straight sets on a hard court.

We have seen a much better start to the year from Konta. 9 wins from 13 compared to 5 from 10 wins for Kasatkina. On hard courts she has also been stronger. 60% v 33% matches won in the last 12 months. She reached the third round last week in Doha. This week she had a solid win over Pavlyuchenkova in straight sets.

Kasatkina beat Radwanska in the last round.  She was only broken twice from 3 break chances. She only won 51% of her hard court matches in the last 12 months and has won 2 of 6 this year.

Kasatkina will fight hard as usual but I favour Konta. Back her above 1.80
