Due to start at 9:30
Zhang 2.10, Collins 1.89
This will be their first meeting.
Their overall results are quite even in the last 12 months and also in 2019. Their 12 month hard court results are even but Collins has been a little better in 2019.
Shuai Zhang had an excellent grass season reaching the 3rd round in Eastbourne and the quarter finals at Wimbledon. Hard court success this season is really limited to a 3rd round finish at the Australian Open in January. She lost in the first round of this tournament last year to Vera Lapko in straight sets.
Collins also performed well at Wimbledon and made the 3rd round. Her best tournament of the season was her semi final at the Australian Open. She reached the semi finals in San Jose last season where she lost out to Maria Sakkari in 3 sets.
It should be a tight match. Back Collins around 2.10
