Makarova leads their previous meetings 6-1. She won their last 6. All their matches were over in 2 sets.
Makarova and Strycova really struggled to hold serve in their opening set yesterday. Makarova eventually took the set and Strycova pretty much gave up. Makarova has played well this week on what is probably her best surface.
Vesnina has not dropped a set so far She has been in strong form on grass. She reached the quarter finals in Eastbourne beating Bencic in straight sets.
If Makarova can continue her form from last week then she will take this but with the way she served yesterday in the first set I think we have a good chance of getting a better price on her.
Back Makarova if she is broken first.
