Due to start at 2 pm
Ostapenko 1.62, Petkovic 2.40
Ostapenko has won both their previous matches. They last met at the US Open in August last year. She won in 3 sets on a hard court. She won their other match on a hard when Petkovic retired.
Both players have been in poor form recently. Ostapenko has won 6 of 16 in 2019 and Petkovic won 5 of 13.
Indoor results favour Ostapenko. The only tournament in 2019 that she won back to back matches at was in Charleston earlier this month. She has home advantage today and an excellent Fed Cup record. She has won 11 of 16 Fed Cup matches.
Petkovic has not won back to back main draw matches in 2019. She ended 2018 strongly on indoor courts. In October she reached the semi finals in Linz and the quarter finals in Luxembourg. She has not won a Fed Cup match since April 2016.
We have a very good chance of 3 sets. Back Ostapenko around 1.85.
