Slight edge to Cornet but Parmentier will give her some problems
Due to start at 4 pm
Cornet 1.47, Parmentier 3.10
Cornet leads their previous meetings 2-1. Their last meeting was in Nurnberg in June 2013 on clay. Cornet won in straight sets. Both her wins were on clay.
Overall results for the last 12 months and for 2018 favour Cornet. Results on clay also favour her but they are a little more closely matched.
Cornet reached the fourth round last year. She reached the quarter finals in Charleston on green clay in April. She played well to beat Errani in 3 sets in the last round.
Parmentier got to the second round last year. She hasn’t played well on clay this year other than a randomly strong tournament in Istanbul that saw her win the title beating Hercog in the final and beating Wozniacki, Putintseva and Begu en route the the final.
Parmentier can sometimes lift her game against top players. Back Cornet above 1.70
