Venus won their only previous meeting in September last year. She won in straight sets on a hard court.
Goerges usually struggles against Wickmayer but she served well to beat her in the last round. She saved both break points that Wickmayer had.
Venus had a tougher match than expected with Kozlova and it went to 3 sets. She reached the quarter finals last year losing out to Serena in 3 sets.
To have any chance today Goerges has to serve at her best. Even then it won’t be enough unless Venus has a poor match.
Back Venus if she gets broken first. She starts around 1.40.
