Konta 1.44, Bertens 3.20
Their head to heads are 1-1. They last met in April 2012 in Copenhagen. Konta won in 2 easy sets on an indoor hard court. Berten’s win was also indoors in an ITF tournament in 2012 and she won in a third set tie break.
Konta has hugely superior hard court results this year. She has won 19 of her 25 matches in 2017 compared to 4 of 11 from Bertens. In her career she has won 51% of her hard court matches.
Konta won the title in Miami on hard courts in March. She was a little disappointing last week losing to Makarova in 3 sets although Makarova has really lifted her game recently.
Bertens beat a poor Dodin in the last round. Dodin won just 25% of her 2nd serve points and only 50% on first serve. If Konta is fit she wins in 2 sets. Wait for 1.60 before backing her.
