WTA Finals, Singapore, Round Robin: Muguruza v Williams, 12:30

Muguruza 1.53, Williams 2.88

Venus leads their previous meetings 3-2. They last played on grass in the Wimbledon final in July. Muguruza won that in straight sets. Muguruza also won their other 2017 match which was on clay in Rome in May. That one went to 3 sets. All Venus’ wins were on hard courts.

Both have won 1 match this week against Ostapenko so need a win to go through to the semis.

Their 2017 results are quite similar with Muguruza winning 70% of her matches and Venus winning 72%. They have played very little indoor tennis this year. Venus’ longer term record indoors is stronger.

Some value on Venus to take a set. Neither player could cope with Pliskova’s power . We can easily have 3 sets here. Lay Muguruza if she breaks first or lay below 1.30

Update: Venus Williams won in 2 sets. 7-5, 6-4. Muguruza dropped to 1.33 in the first set.
