WTA Indian Wells, 3rd round: Nara v Strycova (22:00)

This is their first meeting.

Nara beat Venus Williams in the last round. Her own second serve was awful but Venus’ was worse.

Strycova beat Petkovic in a topsy turvy match. Both players struggled on serve and Strycova faced 19 break points and was broken 10 times. She gave up a large lead in the third set but Petkovic drew level before they suffered a rain delay. Strycova handled the delay better and won the third set 7-5.

Three sets seem likely. It’s really tough to pick a winner pre match as both women are in fragile form this week. Value is on Nara.

Strycova starts around 1.50 and I think we see many breaks.
