WTA Washington: Chirico v Puig (7pm)

This will be the first time they have met.

Puig’s over all results this season have been stronger.  She started the year well on hard courts with a semi final in Doha and a third round in Dubai. Both those tournaments were in February. Her form since has been a little erratic.

It’s time for Monica Puig to find her hard court form

Chirico had won just 3 of 16 matches this season before this tournament. She has come through the qualifying rounds this week. . She needed 3 sets to beat 2 players outside the top 250. She has not won a main draw hard court match since Indian Wells in March.

I have to favour Puig on hard courts but will only back her if she gets broken or loses set 1
