Karolina Muchova 1.72, Ekaterina Alexandrova 2.36
Due to start at 2:30 pm.
This will be their first meeting.
Better overall results for Muchova in 2019. Both players are strong indoors but Alexandrova has slightly better results.
Alexandrova has faced 2 weak opponents so far. Jana Cepelova and Wild Card Anna Kalinskaya are ranked 141 and 100 respectively. Alexandrova won both matches very convincingly. She had a disappointing loss to Ostapenko last week. It was disappointing as she was 6-1, 3-1 up but went on to lose 5-7 in the deciding set.
Muchova has beaten Donna Vekic and Svetlana Kuznetsova in straight sets this week. She won the hard court title in Seoul last month.
We have a good chance of seeing 3 sets. Both have won 8 of their last 10 indoors but both of Muchova’s “losses” were due to walkover. Back Muchova around 1.95. Lay the set 1 winner.
