Karolina Pliskova 2.46, Bianca Andreescu 1.67
Round Robin stage
Due to start at 12 noon.
Andreescu won their only previous meeting which was in the quarter finals of the Rogers Cup in Canada. She won on a hard court in 3 sets. Overall results favour Andreescu in 2019. There is very little between them indoors.
They both lost their opening match and will be keen to get the win today to stay in with a chance of qualifying.
Pliskova’s serve was pretty strong in her loss to Svitolina. She was only broken twice. She reached the semi finals at the WTA Finals in Singapore last season. She also made the semi finals in 2017.
Andreescu has had an amazing season. She has only lost 7 matches and won her first major title at the US Open. She lost a very tight match to Halep in 3 sets. Both players came under a lot of pressure in that match and there were 13 breaks of serve.
I see some value on Pliskova today and she should be able to take at least a set. Lay Andreescu around 1.45 and remove liability at 1.90. Its worth laying the set 1 winner but if you do, remove liability after a break of serve in your favour.
