WTA Rabat Grand Prix, 1st round: Dulgheru v Makarova (12:30)

Dulgheru has won both their previous matches. Their last was on clay in May last year. She won in straight sets.

Makarova was disappointing last week. She struggled on serve against Vinci though still managed to take it to 3 sets. her form hasn’t been great in 2016 but had shown real signs of improvement in Miami.

Dulgheru hasn’t won a match since January though has been underdog every time. Clay is her strongest surface.

I would give Makarova a slight edge here but I am not greatly confident in her. I will back her if she gets broken first but will be looking for her to break back quickly if I am to stay in.
