Due to start at 3:30 pm
Stephens 3.38, Muguruza 1.71
Head to heads are 1-1. Their last match was in Miami in March 2018. Stephens won on a hard court in straight sets. Muguruza won also on a hard court in 2015. She won in 2 sets.
Overall results are quite even. Both have strong clay records.
Stephens struggled against Hercog in the last round. That was expected as Hercog has been in excellent recent form on clay. Stephens was broken 5 times in their 3 sets. She won both her previous matches in straight sets but had a tie break set in each one.
Muguruza dropped her opening set of the week but has been strong since. Her serve was not amazing in the last round against Svitolina and took a while to get going but she won in straight sets.
Stephens reached the final last year. Muguruza made the semi finals. Stats for the tournament are very even in everything except service holds. Mug leads that stat 80% v 68%. The sets will be tight. Back Muguruza around 2.00.
