Due to start at 6 pm
V. Williams 1.87, Suarez Navarro 2.10
Venus Williams leads their previous meetings 6-3. Their most recent match was in March 2018 on a hard court. Venus won in straight sets. She won their last 4 matches.
Overall results favour Venus. Hard court results strongly favour her. She reached the quarter finals in Indian Wells. She beat Kvitova and had a very tight loss to Kerber. She has a home in Miami which is a real advantage. She can sleep in her own bed and will have friends around her which just doesn’t happen when they are on the road.
Suarez Navarro has won 5 of 11 matches on hard courts this year. At times she has played great tennis but she can’t find any consistency. She reached the final in 2015 but has lost in the first round for the last 3 seasons.
This looks a decent price on Venus. Back her around 2.00.
Update: Venus was broken in the first game of the match but went on to win 7-6, 6-1.
