WTA Western and Southern Open, Cincinnati, 1st round: Riske v Flink (16:00)

This will be their first meeting.

Flink left the ITF tour 2 years ago and returned in March this year. She prefers to play on clay but is a capable hard courter. She has come through the qualifying rounds this week and beat Doi and Buyukakcay.

Riske has done well on grass and hard courts this season. Riske is rightly the favourite but Flink’s form this year suggests she is very happy to be back playing tennis and she is feeling good about her game.

I think we will see a higher price on Riske. It is worth a lay on her at the start. Remove the liability if Riske gets broken and then Fink holds. Riske starts around 1.20 .
