WTA Guangzhou Open, Semi Final: Wickmayer v Krunic, 11:00

Wickmayer 2.32, Krunic 1.75

Wickmayer has won all 3 of their previous meetings. They last met in a federation Cup tie  in April last year. Wickmayer won on clay in 3 sets.

This season Krunic has better overall results and has also been stronger on hard courts. She won 65% of her hard court matches in 2017 compared to 56% for Wickmayer. Krunic also has a higher ROI. She has been impressive this week and has not lost a set. She had to work hard in the first round against Tsurenko but was more comfortable against Barthel and Peterson.

Aleksandra Krunic

Wickmayer had served very well in her first 2 matches. Against Cornet in the quarter final she came under a lot of pressure for the first time this week. Cornet has a knack of dragging opponents down to her level of serving and that was certainly the case in their second set that ended with Wickmayer winning it in a tie break. In that set Wickmayer faced 7 break points and was broken 4 times

This should be a good match and despite their head to head record I favour Krunic for this one. Wait for 1.90.

Update: Krunic won 6-3, 6-3.
