Tough battle expected but I see Garcia coming out on top

Due to start at 4 pm

Stephens 2.06, Garcia 1.82

Head to heads are 1-1. Their last meeting was on the grass in Eastbourne. Stephens won in straight sets. Garcia’s win was indoors in a Fed Cup tie in 2014.

Head to head info from Tennis Insight

Stephens has slightly better overall results this season but Garcia’s 12 month results are a little better.  Stephens won 15 of 21 this season ( 71%). Garcia won 18 of 28 (64%)

Clay results are very even. They have both won 75% of their clay matches this season.

Stephens has had to work hard for her place in the third round.  Strycova won their opening set in the first round in a tie break. In the last round Stephens took the first set 6-0 but a late break gave the second set to Kanepi.  Stephens reached the third round in Madrid last week.

Caroline Garcia

Garcia was comfortable in her match against Babos. She faced just 3 break points which she saved.  She reached the semi finals last week in Madrid losing to Bertens.
