This will be the first time they have met.
Pliskova has the stronger serve but all other stats this year favour Ostapenko. Pliskova has the better win loss ratio.
Ostapenko reached the final in Doha but had 2 poor losses straight after as favourite. She lost just 2 games to Hantuchova this week.
Pliskova won an ITF title on carpet in February. She reached the 3rd round as a qualifier in Miami and she came through a tough match to beat Watson in 3 sets this week.
There is value on Pliskova. I think both players will have problems serving out the match if they get into that position. We should see a few price swings in this one.
