Due to start at 7:30 pm
Fiona Ferro 3.75, Qiang Wang 1.35
Wang leads their previous matches 3-1. They last played in New York last week. Wang won on a hard court in 2 sets. All her wins have been on hard courts. Ferro won on clay in Strasbourg in May 2019.
Their 12 month results favour Wang but they are pretty even in 2019. Wang has stronger hard court results.
Wang has been quietly moving through the tournament. She beat Caroline Dolehide in the first round and Alison Van Uytvanck in the second. She has been broken just once in each round.
Ferro had a solid win in the first round over Daria Gavrilova. In the second round she beat Mladenovic in 3 sets. Mladenovic had beaten Angelique Kerber in the first round. Ferro was broken 9 times. She won 48% of points on her first serve and just 28% of points on her second serve. Mladenovic hit 11 double faults.
We have a chance of seeing 3 sets but I favour Wang to win. Back her if she gets broken or loses set 1.
Update: Ferro took a 3-0 lead in the opening set. Wang fought back to win 7-6, 6-3.
