Siniakova 3.25, Kasatkina 1.43
This will be the first time they have played.
Kasatkina has slightly better 2017 results though her recent form is much stronger. She beat a tired Pavlyuchenkova in the last round in 2 sets. Pavlyuchenkova had won the title last week and was not at her best. Kasatkina got to the semi finals of this tournament in 2015 and the quarter finals last year.
Siniakova beat Vekic who must have been injured and won just 2 games in their first round match. Siniakova has won just 3 of her last 10 matches. She also reached the semi finals in 2014
I don’t like the price on Kasatkina as this could be a tight match. Back her if she gets broken first or loses set 1
