Due to start at 2 pm
Pavlyuchenkova 2.52, Kontaveit 1.63
Kontaveit leads their previous matches 2-1.They last met in the quarter finals of this tournament last season. Kontaveit won in 3 sets.
Overall results are a little better for Kontaveit in the last 12 months and also in 2019. Their clay results are fairly even.
Kontaveit played a very strong match in the last round to beat Garcia in 2 sets. She faced 6 break points and saved them all. She won 80% of points on her first serve. She reached the semi finals last year and the quarter finals in 2017.
Pavlyuchenkova lost the first set to Goerges in the last round but Goerges was injured and retired in set 3. Last year’s quarter final was her best results in Stuttgart.
I favour Kontaveit to win a close match. Back her around 1.85.
