It’s an exhibition so you’re advised to use reduced stakes.
They have allowed less than an hour for each match so they are using a changed format. Flashscores indicate that they are using the fast 4 format. First to 4 games with a tie break at 3-3. They probably won’t play Advantage from deuce so at 40-40 the next point wins the game.
Bencic (1.3) v Teichmann (3.2)
Due to start at 2:30 pm
Bencic won their only previous meeting. That was in November 2017 in an indoor Challenger quarter final. She won in straight sets.
Overall results strongly favour Bencic in the last 12 months and also in 2020. Her indoor results are a little better.
Teichmann has only played 3 matches during lockdown. They were on clay. Bencic has played 3 matches on clay and 2 on hard courts. She only lost 1 of those matches which was on clay against Schmiedlova. She beat Vondrousova and Martincova on hard courts in straight sets. In both those matches she won the opening set 6-0.
Bencic can often start slowly if her opponent puts her under pressure. She should control this match but i don’t want to enter at 1.30. Back her if Teichmann gets the first break or if she somehow takes the first set.
Voegele (2.1) v Golubic (1.67)
Due to start at 3:20 pm
Voegele has won both their previous meetings. The most recent was in April 2019 on clay. She won easily in 2 sets. The other match was indoors in 2016. She won in 3 sets.
Their 12 month overall results are quite even but Voegele has stronger results this season. Both players have decent indoor results. Golubic has not played indoors since April 2019. Voegele had 4 wins in qualifying rounds indoors in October last year.
Golubic has played just 2 matches during the pandemic. Both were on clay earlier this month. She beat Svitolina and Teichmann.
Voegele played 2 clay matches during lockdown. She narrowly beat Teichman and Simona Wiltert in 3 sets. She lost on a hard court to Kristyna Pliskova last week.
Golubic has beaten stronger opponents indoors but her best results were in 2018.
This could be a close one. Some value on Voegele. We have a decent chance of 3 sets. I will be backing whoever gets broken first. I give Golubic a slight edge and would prefer her to make the slower start. Anything over 2.20 to 2.30 is a decent price to back her. Lay the set 1 winner.
Hingis (1.83) v Schnyder (2.2)
Due to start at 4:10 pm
Patty Schnyder won both their previous matches. Both were in 2017 on a hard court and a clay court.
Hingis last played on the main tour in 2015. Schnyder last played in 2018, mainly in ITF events. She played mainly on clay that season.
There really is no way to assess accurately who is in better shape. For all we know they have been bingeing on donuts and chocolate. It will be an interesting one to watch but personally I won’t be placing any bets on this match.
Hingis has the better pedigree and if i had to pick a winner it would be her. I’d wait for 2.10 or better before entering.
