WTA Miami Open, Quarter Final: Pliskova v Vondrousova

Due to start at 11 pm

Pliskova 1.90, Vondrousova 2.08

This will be their first meeting.

Their 12 month results favour Pliskova but their results in 2019 are very even. Pliskova’s hard court results are stronger although both players have won more than 80% of their matches.

Pliskova lost the opening set against both Putintseva and Cornet. Putintseva had 19 break chances and converted 6 of them.  Pliskova reached the quarter final last season and the semi final in 2017.

Vondrousova has not lost a set so far.  Her toughest opponent was Mertens and it is no surprise that she was able to put the most pressure on Vondrousova. Mertens broke serve 5 times. I would expect Pliskova to put her under at least that level of pressure.

Stats for the tournament favour Vondrousova in everything except service holds. I think this can easily go to 3 sets. A Pliskova win is far from certain.

Lay the set 1 winner. I give a slight edge to Pliskova. Back her around 2.10.
