Kristina Mladenovic 1.98, Katerina Siniakova 2.00
Due to start at 3 pm.
Siniakova leads their previous matches 4-3. The last time they met was in September 2018 on a hard court in Wuhan, China. Siniakova won in straight sets. They are 1-1 indoors. Mladenovic won their most recent indoor match in Jan 2018. She won in 2 sets.
Overall results favour Mladenovic in the last 12 months and also in 2019. Long term indoor results favour Siniakova. They have both won half their indoor matches in the last 12 months.
Mladenovic reached the quarter finals last year. She put in some decent performances last month on hard courts. She beat an out of sorts Caroline Garcia and Elina Svitolina in Zhengzhou on her way to the semi finals.
Siniakova has never won a main draw match in Linz in 4 visits. She reached the 3rd round last week in Beijing which she will have been pleased with as her previous 3 tournaments were poor. She reached the semi finals in New York on hard courts in August
Some value on Mladenovic although her price has dropped since last night. Lay Siniakova around 1.60 to 1.65 and remove liability at 2.20.
Update: Siniakova easily held serve in the first game and won the first 2 points against Mladenovic’s serve. That gave us a decent lay price on Siniakova. Mladenovic won 6-1, 7-5.
