This will be the first time they played.
Muguruza didn’t look sharp in her 1st match. She won in straight sets but hit more double faults than aces and faced 8 bp against an average opponent..
Niculescu reached the final in Seoul in September but her form has dipped since then. She needed 3 sets to beat an out of form Brengle in the last round.
The price on Muguruza reflects her up and down form but I think she takes this. I’ll probably be greedy and wait for 1.70. She starts around 1.50.
