Andrea Petkovic 2.80, Julia Goerges 1.54
Due to start at 7:30 pm.
Petkovic leads their previous matches 3-2. Their last meeting was in this tournament last season. Petkovic won in 3 sets. Overall results favour Goerges in the last 12 months and also in 2019.
Goerges has a much stronger indoor record. She beat Margarita Gasparyan in the last round in straight sets. She faced 13 break points but was only broken twice. She has only played 4 indoor matches this season but won 3 of them. Last season she won the title in Moscow indoors and also reached the semi finals in Luxembourg.
Petkovic easily beat Teichmann in the last round. She has been in decent form on outdoor hard courts and reached the 3rd round at the US Open. She reached the semi finals in Linz last year and the quarter finals in Luxembourg the week after but has had little success indoors since.
I give a slight edge to Goerges to win but 3 of their 5 matches went to 3 sets. In the matches that went to a deciding set it was always the player losing the first set who won the match. Back Goerges around 1.85. Lay the set 1 winner.
