Jabeur (1.82) v Collins (2.20)
Due to start at Midday
This will be their first meeting.
Overall results in the last 12 months and in 2020 favour Jabeur. Clay results are a little better for Collins. She has won 32 of her last 50. Jabeur has won 27 of 50.
Collins beat Garbine Muguruza in the last round. She played a superb opening set that she took 7-5. Her level dropped in the second set and Muguruza levelled the match before taking a double break 3-0 lead in the deciding set. Collins started going for her shots as she had in the first set and took 6 of the next 7 games. Collins has struggled to find form before the French Open but seemed really focused last week.
Jabeur beat Aryna Sabalenka in 3 sets in the last round. She made a slow start to the tournament and needed 3 sets to beat Zarina Diyas in 3 sets.
Stats for the tournament favour Collins for everything except service holds. Collins has a very aggressive style of play and when it’s working she can be a tough opponent. We have a little value on her today. Lay Jabeur around 1.50 and remove liability at 2.00.
We have a great chance of seeing 3 sets. I give Danielle Collins a slight edge to win.
