Townsend 1.90, Vickery 2.02
Head to heads are 2-2. They last met in February this year in Acapulco, Mexico. Townsend won in straight sets on a hard court.
Better overall results for Townsend this year. She has won 58% of her 2017 matches. She has not played indoors in the last 12 months and has played very little tennis in the last few weeks.
Vickery has won 47% of her matches this year. At the recent US Open she got through the qualifying rounds and made the second round of the main draw. Her last indoor tournament was in October last season and she reached the semi finals.
Not too much between them and it looks like a 3 setter. Value on Vickery to take at least a set. Her recent form is stronger and I favour her to win.
Update: Vickery was broken in the first game of the match and went on to win 7-5, 6-0.
