Due to start at 6:30 pm
Lepchenko 1.86, Parmentier 2.14
Parmentier won their only previous meeting in May 2009 in Strasbourg. She won on clay in 2 tie breaks.
Better overall results for Lepchenko though she has won less than half her matches in 2018. She does struggle a little more than most with injuries but has been healthy recently and has performed fairly well. She has really lifted her game this week. She beat Sabalenka in the first round in straight sets.
Parmentier has had a poor season. She has won just 17 of 44 matches in 2018 but has played well this week. She beat McHale in the last round. She usually performs well indoors but has not done so this season.
Stats for the week favour Lepchenko although Parmentier has better service hold numbers.
Back Lepchenko above 2.10. Three sets seem likely.
