Brady (1.61) v Bouzkova (2.62)
Due to start at 7 pm
This is their first meeting.
Overall results favour Brady in the last year and also in 2020. Her hard court results in the last 12 months are also stronger. She has a much higher ROI.
Brady has been very comfortable in both her matches. Heather Watson and Magda Linette were both quite disappointing. Brady has only been broken once this week. She reached the semis in Dubai in Feb as a qualifier. She also made the q finals in Brisbane as qualifier.
Bouzkova beat Joanna Konta in the first round as underdog. She easily beat Blinkova in the last round. She has only been broken once in each round. She reached the final in Monterrey in March.
I think this could be close but I have to favour Brady. Back her around 1.90 to 2.00. Lay the set 1 winner.
