WTA Tipsport Elite Trophy, 19th July 2020

These are played on hard courts. Two normal sets and a match tie break to 10 points if required.


Martincova (2.82) v Swiatek (1.47)

Due to start at 11 am

This is their first meeting.

Overall results favour Swiatek in the last 12 months and also in 2020. Their hard court results are quite even.

Martincova hasn’t played well on hard courts during the pandemic. She won just 2 games against Bencic yesterday and last month lost to the lower ranked Kuzmova sister. Her only win was over Schmiedlova who has also been in poor form on hard courts.

Swiatek narrowly lost to in form Muchova yesterday. She fought back from losing the opening set but Muchova took the match tie break which had 9 mini breaks.

I am giving the edge to Swiatek but want a much better price before back her. Anything over 1.85 is OK or wait for her to be broken before backing.

Kr Pliskova (2.1) v Strycova (1.62)

Due to start at 12:30 pm

Strycova has won all 3 of their previous meetings. They were all on different surfaces. She won on grass in 2019, indoors in 2018 and on clay in 2013.

Overall results in the last 12 months favour Pliskova. They have been quite even in 2020. It’s the same pattern on hard courts.

Pliskova has played mainly clay matches during lockdown. Her only hard court match was a straight sets loss to 26th ranked Karolina Muchova.

Strycova has also played more clay matches during Covid-19. She has played twice on hard courts. She also lost to Muchova and beat 822nd ranked Linda Fruhvirtova in 2 sets.

Tough one to predict. Despite their previous results we have some value on Pliskova. There is a decent chance that this goes to 3 sets.

Back Strycova if she goes a break behind. Lay the set 1 winner.

Vondrousova (2.20) v Bencic (1.78)

Due to start at 4 pm

This is their first meeting.

Overall results favour Bencic in the last 12 months and in 2020. Her hard court record is also better.

Bencic has played reasonably well during the lockdown. Just one poor performance against Schmiedlova on clay earlier this month. She easily beat Martincova yesterday.

Vondrousova has played 2 hardcourt matches during the pandemic. She beat Schmiedlova and the weaker Kuzmova sister in straight sets.

Both players can be unpredictable at the best of times but I am going with Bencic. The sets should be close. Back Bencic around 2.20. If both are playing well a lay of the set winner is a good plan.
