WTA Miami Open, Semi Final: Wozniacki v Pliskova (6pm)

Wozniacki leads their previous meetings 3-1. Their last match was last month in Doha on a hard court. PLiskova won that in straight sets. All their matches have been on hard courts. All Wozniacki’s wins were in 3 sets. Pliskova won the 1st set in 3 of the 4 matches. Wozniacki’s wins were when she was the higher ranked player and Pliskova  won at least a set in every match.

Tight match expected but Pliskova should make it to the final

Wozniacki has not lost a set so far. She had quite close sets with Safarova. She faced 7 break points but was only broken once.  In the match before that she has a tough opening set with Muguruza and was broken 3 times. Muguruza retired after losing the set in a tie break.

Pliskova has also not dropped a set in this tournament.  Lucic Baroni gave her the most trouble which was in the last round.  Lucic Baroni was a break ahead in the second set but just couldn’t hold on for the set.

I want a slightly better entry price but I favour Pliskova to get the win. For trading I will wait to back her when she is broken. Three sets look likely.

Pliskova starts around 1.80.
