WTA Shenzhen first round, 3rd Jan.

I’m not sure how many people will be up in the early hours so I went for the 2  later matches.


06:00 – Rodina v Babos

Rodina had some injury problems towards the end of the season though she  managed to reach the semi finals of her last tournament. It was a WTA Challenger in Taipei.

Babos ended her season by winning the title in that Taipei Challenger. She was pretty inconsistent in 2015. She has started the last few seasons well.

I can see this being a swingy match. No value on Babos at 1.55 . Back her if she gets broken first.



07:30 – Sevastova v Niculescu

Head to heads are 1-1. The most recent was in 2011. That was also on a hard court and Niculescu won in 3 sets. Sevastova  won on clay in 2010.

When comparing the start that these two made last season Sevastova came out of the block better.

I’d expect a lot of errors in the early games from both players. No value on Niculscu at 1.50 but she is the better hard courter.

Back her above 1.75
