Due to start at 7 pm
Bertens 1.63, Vandeweghe 2.52
Head to heads are 1-1. They last played in March 2016 on a hard court in Indian Wells. Vandeweghe won in straight sets. Bertens won on grass in 2015 in 2 sets.
Better overall results for Bertens this year. She leads 62% v 47% matches won.
Vandeweghe has had 2 decent weeks this season. She reached the final in Stuttgart on clay in April and the semi finals in Hertogenbosch on grass in June. On hard courts she has won just 1 of 4 in 2018 and 10 of 17 in the last 12 months.
Bertens doesn’t have good career stats on hard courts but has performed well on the surface this season. She reached the third round at the Australian Open in January. Last week she made the quarter finals in Montreal beating Pliskova and Kvitova before falling to Barty.
I have to favour Bertens but will need a better price before backing her. Wait for 1.85
