This is their first meeting.
Better overall results for Garcia this year though Cirstea has a higher ROI. Cirstea has better hard court results in 2017.
Cirstea has come through the qualifying rounds this week. She beat Giorgi in straight sets in the last round. She reached the final in 2013 but that was the only time she won a main draw match at the Rogers Cup.
Garcia has lost in the 1st round for the last 2 seasons. She has only won 1 main draw match in this tournament which was in 2014. Her recent form has been pretty good on clay and grass. Her last hard court tournament was in April in Monterrey where she reached the semi finals.
We have some value on Cirstea to take a set. Lay Garcia if she breaks first. I can see this going to 3 sets.
