Cirstea ahead on all the stats here and although very unpredictable, if she plays anywhere near her best today then she will have far too much for a limited Peng on clay

PAQUET TO BEAT PLISKOVA @ 6-1
Pliskova is awful on clay, it negates her powerful serve and takes away some of her ground strokes shot power as well and just tends to expose her movement.
Service Hold 64% 71.3%
Service Break 32.7% 28.9%
CEPELOVA TO BEAT HALEP @ 11-2
Halep has been in fantastic form reaching the final in both her last two tournaments winning one and losing one and playing with such confidence but it is taking a toll on her body and all reports suggest she could struggle physically through this tournament. Cepelova is a decent player on clay and can string the points out which should be her to plan to keep the points as long as she can to test out Halep’s vulnerable physical state.
