Sasnovich 1.74, Linette 2.32
Sasnovich has won all four of their previous matches. They last met in Miami in March last year. She won on a hard court in straight sets. That was their only hard court match.
Linette managed just 1 set in their 4 matches. She hasn’t had an awful start to the season and reached the third round at the Australian open in January. She has also performed well indoors. She has won 8 from 14 matches in 2018.
Sasnovich has better overall results in last 12 months. Her hard court results are also stronger! She has 9 wins from 11 this year. She reached the final in Brisbane in the opening week of the season. She backed that up with a third round finish in Melbourne.
I think Linette will be fairly competitive but back Sasnovich above 1.80
