Due to start at 2:30 pm
Hsieh 1.74, Strycova 2.32
Head to heads are 3-3. They last met in January 2018 in Auckland. Hsieh won on a hard court in 3 sets. All their matches were on hard courts.
Hsieh has better overall results in the last 12 months.
Longer term grass results favour Strycova. She reached the semi finals in Birmingham last season and then reached the third round at Wimbledon. She beat Heather Watson in 3 sets in the last round.
Hsieh beat Aryna Sabalenka in a 3rd set tie break. She made the fourth round at Wimbledon and beat Halep in 3 sets.
We have a very good chance of 3 sets. Some value on Strycova as underdog. Lay Hsieh if she breaks first. Lay the set 1 winner.
