Head to heads are 1-1. Their last match was in October 2015 in Beijing. Arruabarrena won on a hard court in 3 sets. They haven’t played on clay.
McHale has hit her clay form at this time of year for the last 3 seasons. She usually does well in Madrid and Rome. She reached the third round in Madrid last season.
Arruabarrena has not played since Bogota 3 weeks ago. She reached the final that week on clay. She reached the quarter finals in Miami in March but apart from those two strong weeks her performances have not been great.
There is very little between them on clay. We have some value on McHale as underdog.
Arruabarrena starts around 1.80. Lay her below 1.50.
