WTA Volvo Car Open, Charleston: Goerges v Osaka

Goerges needs to improve from the service line. Osaka to take a tight match.

Goerges 2.42, Osaka 1.69

Osaka won their only previous meeting. That was in August 2016 on a hard court in Cincinnati. She won in 2 sets.

Both players have excellent results in 2018. Osaka has a slight edge but both have won over 70% of matches. Goerges has slightly better clay results.

Goerges lost the first set to American Kristie Ahn and ended up winning in a third set tie break. Her serve was not at its best. She won 45% of points on her serve.

Naomi Osaka

Osaka had a tight 2 sets win over Siegemund in the last round. Her serve was pretty solid. She was broken twice from 8 break chances. In her first match of the week she started by being broken by Jennifer Brady but fought back to win in straight sets.

For Goerges to have a chance here she needs to improve her serve. I give Osaka a slight edge. Back her above 2.00.
