A little surprisingly Hercog has won all three of their previous matches. The most recent was on clay in July last year. She won in straight sets.2015. They only played one hard court match which was in January last year and it went to 3.
Babos ended last year well with a title in Taipei and has continued that form this season.
Hercog has won 3 of her last 10 matches though had some very tough draws. She took Azarenka to 3 sets in her last match. She also lost to Jankovic, Lisicki and Stephens.
There is a little value on Hercog but it is down to how well Babos serves. Back Babos if she is broken first.
