Due to start at 2 pm
Rybarikova 2.72, Bonaventure 1.57
This will be their first meeting.
Overall results in the last 12 months and also in 2019 favour Bonaventure. Bonaventure has won around half her clay matches but is stronger on clay than Rybarikova.
Rybarikova has won 13 of her 33 matches in the last 12 months. Those numbers were really boosted by her run to the semi finals in Monterrey at the start of this month. Before that the last time she won 2 matches in a row was on grass in Birmingham in June 2018. She did reach the third round at the French Open in May. I can’t find another tournament on clay where she won 2 in a row.
Bonaventure has come through the qualifying rounds this week. She has had limited success this season and most of her wins were in qualifying rounds.
Rybarikova has a lot more experience and this will be a competitive match. Back Bonaventure around 1.80.
