Due to start at 2 pm
Bondarenko 2.00, Cornet 1.94
Cornet leads their previous matches 3-2. They last met in Charleston, USA in April this year. Cornet won in straight sets on clay. Bondarenko won their only grass match at Wimbledon 2011 in 2 sets. Only one of their matches went to a deciding set.
Slightly better overall results for Bondarenko in the last 12 months and also in 2018. Her grass results are also better.
Bondarenko has come through the qualifying rounds. She reached the 3rd round on her last visit to Eastbourne in 2016.
Cornet’s quarter final in Charleston and her quarter final in Brisbane at the start of the year were the only weeks that she won 2 matches in a week.
Lay Cornet if she breaks first. I give Bondarenko a slight edge today. We can expect a few break of serve. Look to remove or reduce liability if we get a decent price swing in our favour.
