Katerina Siniakova 2.74, Ekaterina Alexandrova 1.54
Due to start at 7:30 am
Their head to head record is 2-2. The last time they met was at Wimbledon in July last year. Siniakova won in 3 sets on grass. Alexandrova won on an indoor hard court in Linz in 2018 but they never met outdoors on a hard court.
Much better overall results for Alexandrova last season. She also has a higher ROI. Her hard court results are stronger. She won 61% of her matches in the last 12 months and 58% of her hard court matches.
Siniakova needs to improve her serve this season. There were signs of that happening towards the end of 2019. She reached the third round in Beijing in September and the semi finals in New York in August. She only won 44% of her matches in 2019 and 44% of her hard court matches.
Siniakova may struggle on serve but her return game is usually fairly solid. I have to go with Alexandrova. Back Her around 1.85.
Update: Alexandrova looked a little rusty but was always ahead in this one. Actually only faced 2 break points and was broken once but had to work hard for a lot of her service holds.
