Due to start at 3:30 pm
Bencic 1.57, Kenin 2.72
This will be their first meeting.
Overall results are strong for both players but favour Bencic. It’s the same pattern on grass.
Bencic was a set down against Kerber in the last round but took set 2 in a tie break and won the deciding set 6-4. She reached the fourth round at Wimbledon last season beating Garcia in the first round.
Kenin beat Mertens and Sevastova as underdog in the last 2 rounds. She did well at this tournament last year reaching the semi final where she lost in 3 sets to Germany’s Tatjana Maria. She has much less grass experience than Bencic.
Return stats for the tournament are VERY even. Kenin leads on service holds 87% v 79%. We have a decent chance of seeing 3 sets but I favour Bencic to win. Back Bencic around 1.90 or wait for her to be broken before backing her.
