WTA DOHA - TUESDAY

WTA DOHA

Thursday's Tips 

Wozniaki to beat Radwanska @5-4 bet365 

Begu to beat Kasatkina @ 12-5 Bet Victor

Kasatkina leads the head to head 2-1. Begu has a good serve and Kasatkina is still more at home on clay.

Kasatkina 66.7%    38.9%


Buyukakcay to beat Muguruza @ 8-1 Ladbrokes

Muguruza looked in desperate form against Pliskova in the Fed Cup and also appeared to be suffering from a heavy cold, with the travelling and time difference this could be a tough match for her.

SEVASTOVA
SEVASTOVA V STOSUR Over 20.5 Games @ 4-5 BWin 

Head to head is 1-1 and both matches have gone to three sets and I see no reason why today should be any different.

XHANG V BABOS Over 21.5 Games @ 21-20 BWin 

Both have good serves and I feel at least one set will feature a tie-break as neither have great return games

WTA DOHA

Bondarenko to beat Mchale @ 5-4  Bet365

Both have had fairly steady start to the season, Mchale won their only meeting so far earlier this year in three sets and I can see a similar tight match here, but just favour Bondarenko due to her stronger return of serve.

Wang to beat Davis @ 6-4 Bet 365

Davis has been in excellent form so far this season winning Auckland, but here I just favour Wang, Davis is very steady and unspectacular but think she may struggle to finish off the points today against Wang.

Kurumi Nara
Kurumi Nara + 4.5 Games to beat Jelena Jankovic @ 21-20 WHILL

Jankovic leads the head to head 3-0 but both match on hard court have been close with only four and three games between them and I see no reason why this one will be any different. In fact o the six sets played five of them have had a maximum two games between the players with just one set being a 6-0 set.

Pliskova V Baroni to feature a tie-break in match @ 10-3 CORALS 

Pliskova leads the head to head 3-2 and on outdoor hard courts she leads 2-1. Total games played are 126 which averages out at 25.20 games per match. On outdoor hard courts the number of games is 86 average of 28.66. Since 2015 when Piskova really has improved 8 sets have been played and there has been four tie-breaks. Although in a grand slam there is only two chances of a tie-break and at 10-3 with Coral that looks decent odds.

Pliskova
Pliskova to beat Gavrilova - 6.5 Games @ 9-4 PaddyPower, 888 Sport

Pliskova to beat Gavrilova - 5.5 Games @ 13-10 BWin, Marathon 

Pliskova leads the head to head 2-0, winning both matches n straight sets and fairly easily as well winning by 7 games at Miami on hard court then by 8 games at Eastbourne. Pliskova has yet to lose a match so far this season as she won Brisbane and has so far come through here although in her last match she was fortunate as Ostapenko was 5-2 up in the third and did somewhat fall apart. Pliskova so far this season has only lost two sets! So far Gavrilova has come through all three matches here in three sets and they have been tight, against Bacsinzky she was a break down at the start of the third and it was more due to the fact Bacsinszky lost all confidence in her forehand. 

So far this season Pliskova has played 18 sets and of her 8 winning matches 6 of them have been in straight sets and four of them have featured a 6-0 set including one in every set here. Looking at the margin of her wins has covered this handicap 5 times out of 8 with the other three times being margins of 5 and twice 6 games.

Makarova V Konta Over 20.5 Games @ EVENS  Betway

Makarova to beat Konta + 4.5 Games @ EVENS Betfred, BoyleSports

Konta leads the head to head 3-0, one match going three sets which was at this stage last year when Konta went on to win 8-6 in the third. Winning games margins for Konta have been 3, 2 and 6. Konta has yet to lose a set this season so far winning Sydney and coming through here in straight sets. The impressive feat is that 6 of her 8 opponents this season has been ranked in the top 50 so not easy matches and she has dealt with them all so impressively.  Makarova plays very well at this venue and she will not make it easy for Konta, in their previous meetings the average games played is 25 games per match and only once has this total games spread not been covered.

Cibulkova leads the head to head 3-0, two of the matches have gone to three sets and the other one was over in two close sets. Average games per match is 27. Despite the head to head I am going for Makarova to cause an upset here as with a couple of wins under her belt her confidence will be restored and she is a real confidence player.
