Due to start at 07:30
Magda Linette 2.10, Ekaterina Alexandrova 1.86
This will be their first meeting.
Alexandrova has better overall results in the last 12 months and Linette has a small lead in 2019. Linette’s hard court results are stronger in the last 12 months and also in 2019.
Linette has not lost a set so far. Potapova gave her the toughest test in their second round match. Begu and Flipkens were never really in contention.
Alexandrova has lost the opening set in the last 2 rounds. She was fairly comfortable against Greetje Minnen in the 1st round. Against Kristyna Pliskova in the second round she only faced 2 break points and was broken just once in 3 sets. She played American Kristie Ahn in the quarter final and hit 22 aces in their 3 sets
Stats for the tournament give Alexandrova a slight lead on service holds and favour Linette for everything else. We have some value on Linette and I give her the edge to win.
Lay Alex around 1.50 to 1.60 and remove liability at 2.10.
