Due to start at 1:30 pm
Suarez Navarro 2.48, Bencic 1.66
Suarez Navarro won their only previous match. That was in Stuttgart in April 2015 on clay. She won in straight sets.
Their 12 month results favour Bencic although Suarez Navarro has been a little better in 2018. Bencic has 1 extra win this year on grass.
Bencic beat Alison Riske in 3 sets in the last round. Riske has had a superb grass season so far. Bencic saved 4 match points in their second set tie break.
Suarez Navarro has not lost a set so far. Before this week she had only won 2 or more matches in 3 tournaments. They were big tournaments and she made the quarter finals at the Australian Open and also in Indian Wells in March. She had a third quarter final on the clay in Madrid in May.
I favour Bencic to take this but wait for 1.90 before backing.
Update: Comfortable win for Bencic. She won 6-1, 7-6. The price didn’t quite hit the target and the highest was around 1.86.
