Mattek Sands has won both their previous meetings. The most recent March 2010 in Miami. She won on a hard court in straight sets. Both their matches were on hard courts and ended in 2 sets.
Mattek Sands took advantage of a minor meltdown by Diyas in the qualifying rounds. Diyas had taken a break lead and looked in control but was broken twice to
lose the set and fell apart. She has better results than Rodina this year. Even her clay results are a little stronger than Rodina’s.
Rodina has not found any consistency in 20017. Her best week was a second round finish in Indian Wells as a qualifier.
Back Mattek Sands if she gets broken. She starts around 1.45
