Due to start at 4 pm
Wang 1.86, Collins 2.14
This is their first meeting.
Overall results favour Wang in the last 12 months and also in 2019. Her hard court results are also stronger. She leads on hard courts 76% v 64% matches won.
Wang beat Svitolina in straight sets in the last round. Her serve was pretty solid. She faced just 2 break points which were both converted. In her first match of the tournament she beat Mladenovic in 2 sets. She came under more pressure in that match and was broken 5 times.
Collins struggled in the 1st set against Osuigwe. Osuigwe served for the set but was broken and then her game fell apart. She won just 1 more game in the match. Collins has not reproduced the sort of form that got her to the semi finals in Melbourne.
I have to favour Wang. Collins may have taken the win for granted in the last round. She will be more focused. Back Wang around 2.00
