Due to start at 11:30 am
Samantha Stosur 2.90, Tereza Martincova 1.52
This will be their first meeting.
Their overall 12 month and 2019 results are better for Martincova. Her hard court results are also stronger.
Martincova has come through the qualifying rounds comfortably. She was a moderate favourite in both matches. She has only played 12 hard court matches this season. She won 8 of them. At the US Open she also made it through the qualifying rounds and took Pliskova to 2 tie breaks in the main draw. In Zhengzhou last week she took Garcia to 3 sets. She hasn’t won a main draw hard court match in 2019.
Stosur has managed just 1 decent hard court tournament this season. That was a 3rd round finish in Miami in March. She has played in Guangzhou twice before and lost in the first round both times.
Favourites are having a really bad day so far. We have a good chance of 3 sets. Lay Martincova if she breaks first. Back her around 1.85
