WTA Madrid Open, 1st round, Begu v Bouchard (16:00)

Bouchard won their only previous meeting. That was in 2015 on a hard court. She won in 3 sets.

Begu’s form has been a little hit and miss but she played well in Miami and Charleston where she reached the quarter finals. She suffered a poor loss last week to Hogenkamp in straight sets. She reached the quarter finals in Madrid last year.

Bouchard reached the semi finals at the French Open in 2014 but is still struggling this year. She retired from her only clay event of this year.

I see some value on Begu as the underdog. Three sets seem very likely.
