Due to start at 4 pm
Van Uytvanck 2.72, Vondrousova 1.56
Vondrousova won their only previous meeting. That was in an ITF clay tournament in May 2017. She won in straight sets.
Overall results favour Vondrousova in last 12 months and also in 2019. This season she has won 5 of her 6 matches compared to 6 of 11 for Van Uytvanck. Both players have strong indoor results. Vondrousova has the edge indoors. She has won 30 of her 34 career matches indoors.
Van Uytvanck won this title last year which gives her added motivation. She has come back from losing set 1 in her last 2 matches. She beat Alexandrova in a 3rd set tie break in the last round and saved a match point in that tie break.
Vondrousova had tough 3 set matches with Blinkova and Begu. I had expected her to also have problems against Potapova in the semi final but she actually only lost 2 games in that match.
Stats for the tournament favour Vondrousova. We have some value on Van Uytvanck and I expect her to put up a good fight. There is a fair chance of us seeing 3 sets.
Back Vondrousova if she goes a break behind or loses set 1.
