Due to start at 6:30 pm.
Petkovic 2.10, Siniakova 1.87
Siniakova has won both their previous matches. The last time they met was on a clay court in Prague She won in straight sets. Their other match was on grass in 2015 and went to 3 sets.
Slightly better results for Siniakova this season. She has won 58% of her matches compared to 54% for Petkovic. Their indoor records are quite similar.
Petkovic hasn’t had an amazing season but her form has improved a great deal in recent weeks. She reached the semi finals in Guangzhou on hard courts and also the semi finals in Linz last week on indoor courts. She played a strong match in the last round to beat Alison Van Uytvanck in straight sets.
Siniakova has been in excellent recent form. She reached the third round at the US Open and reached the quarter finals of both Beijing and Wuhan where she had to get through the qualifying rounds. She had a minor injury in LInz last week and was unable to compete well. This week she beat Johanna Larsson in 3 sets. She lost the second set in a tie break but didn’t lose a game in the decider.
We have a good chance of seeing 3 sets so there’s some value on Petkovic. Back Siniakova above 2.20.
