Due to start at 4 pm
Kerber 1.58, Bencic 2.68
Kerber leads their previous matches 4-3. They last met in the semi finals in Indian Wells in March this year. Kerber won that semi final in straight sets. She has won their last 4 matches. The only time they played on grass was at Wimbledon last season. Kerber went on to win the title. All their matches have been won in 2 sets.
Kerber has beaten Sharapova and Garcia in straight sets this week. Garcia broke her twice and Sharapova broke her just once. She struggled in the first round against Ysaline Bonaventure and lost a set.
Bencic beat Anisimova in 2 sets in the last round. She lost the first set to Rogers in the second round who then retired in set 3. She has had her share of 3 set matches recently.
I give Kerber a slight edge but it should be a competitive match. Back Kerber around 1.85
