Due to start at 4 pm
Jabeur 1.58, Abanda 2.68
This will be the first time they have met.
Better overall results for Pegula this season. She leads 68% v 52% matches won.
Jabeur beat Safarova in the last round. Safarova had reached the semi finals last season and was a break up in the deciding set on Tuesday. Both players played pretty well and were each broken just twice in 3 sets.
Pegula has come through the qualifying rounds and beat Pliskova in the main draw. She also served pretty well and was broken twice.
Some value on Pegula. Lay Jabeur around 1.40 and remove liability at 1.80. We have a very good chance of 3 sets. Lay the set 1 winner.
Update: Jabeur took the first break of serve and gave us our entry price but after another 5 breaks Pegula took the set in a tie break.
Pegula won 7-6, 6-4
