Puig (2.36) v Errani (1.72)
Due to start at 10 am
Puig has won all 4 of their previous matches. They last met Charleston, USA in April last year. That was on clay but the courts in Charleston are not red clay and are a little more like hard courts. She also won on red clay in Strasbourg in 2016.
Overall results are better for Errani in the last 12 months and also in 2020. Her clay results have been stronger in the last 12 months.
Puig has won 2 of her 6 matches in the last 12 months. She has lost all 4 of her 2020 matches. She has been in the third round of the French Open 3 times including in last season’s tournament.
Errani was once a top 5 player but has struggled in the last few seasons. Her form has improved a little in 2020. She reached the quarter finals in Palermo on clay in August. She played pretty well in the qualifying rounds of this tournament and didn’t lose a set.
We usually see plenty breaks of serve in Errani matches. She was underdog against Martincova in her last qualifying match. She was broken 13 times but won in straight sets! Back her around 2.10 to 2.20 or wait for her to be broken before backing.
