Vekic played very well yesterday is beating Cirstea in straight sets. She leads the head to head 1-0 having won in three sets the only time they met. Pliskova holds around 10% more than Vekic and Vekic breaks her opponents serve around 7% more than Pliskova who can fall apart quite badly if her serve comes under threat.
GOLUBIC TO BEAT SIEGMUND @ 4-5 (NAP)
Golubic is a class above Siegmund on indoor hard courts, holding her serve 10% more and breaking her opponent on average 5% more. Siegmund has a record of 17-18 on indoor hard courts compared to Golubic's 45-22 win-loss record on indoor hard courts. Head to heads is tied 1-1 with Golubic winning the only time they met on hard losing just 5 games. Siegmund reached the FS at Charleston but that was on the green clay and looking at her record this season she has only won one match on hard courts beating Espinosa in a third set tie-break back in Feb. Golubic has not been in much better form winning just two but back on indoor hard courts her favourite conditions and Siegmund's least favourite then Golubic is a confident selection for me.
ROYG TO BEAT LARSSON @ 7-4
Both at home on clay, Royg 10-4 last 12 months and Larsson 12-8. Royg holds serve 3% more and breaks her opponents serve 2% more and is the slightly better play on clay courts. She came through a tough match yesterday and should be playing with plenty of confidence.
JAKUPOVIC TO BEAT SCHIAVONE @ 11-8
Jakupovic leads the head to head 1-0 she won in straight sets earlier this season. 37-12 win-loss record on clay over the last 12 months compared to Schiavone's 3-5 record. She looks a fantastic price to beat a declining Schiavone
