Bellis (2.02) v Pegula (1.96)
Due to start around 7 pm
Pegula won their only previous meeting. That was in Auckland in January this year. She won on a hard court in straight sets.
Long term overall results favour Bellis but Pegula has better results in 2020. Hard court results favour Pegula.
Bellis had an easy win in the last round over Di Lorenzo. She lost just 3 games. She reached the third round at the Australian Open in January. Her only decent hard court results in 2019 was a third round at the Houston Challenger in November.
Pegula beat Zvonareva in 3 sets in the last round. Her serve came under a fair amount of pressure and she faced 14 break points. She was broken 4 times. Last season she reached the final in Auckland where she lost to Serena in straight sets. She also made the quarter finals in two WTA Challenger tournaments.
I will have part stake on Pegula at 2.00 and add to it around 2.30.
