BOUCHARD
WTA EASTBOURNE

BOUCHARD TO BEAT STRYCOVA @ 2-1

Head to head is tied 3-3, never met on grass. I just feel Bouchard could come alive this grass court season, she has had her well-documented problems but is without a doubt still a fine tennis player and back not the surface where she reached the Wimbledon final could just see her confidence come back.

ROYG TO BEAT HSIEH @ 6-5

Royg has the better serve by far and Hsieh is still better known as a double specialist even though she has had some good results this year she is a player I do not trust at all as when things start going wrong she can give up, Royg is competitive and her serve should allow her some free points on today’s surface.

MERTENS TO BEAT PAVLYUCHENKOVA @ 5-4

Mertens has a 13-8 win-loss record on grass compared to Pavy’s 21-20. Mertens destroyed Babos here yesterday and a performance similar to that level would make her very hard to beat here today as she is so much better on the return of serve.

BELLIS TO BEAT GOERGES @ 5-4

Goerges was on a hot streak last week when she reached the final in Majorca and she played inspired tennis, this happens every year but her problem is she fails to follow it up every year. Bellis played well last week until meeting an inspired Goerges who demolished her, different tournament, different atmosphere and likely a different Goerges is why I am going for a different result here.

YING YING DUAN TO BEAT MCHALE @ 2-1

Duan’s horrendous return game might not matter too much here as Mchale is not at home on this surface as backed up by her career record of 22 wins 21 losses compared to Duan’s 14-8. Mchale has been in awful form of late losing in the first round in 6 of her last 8 tournaments and in the other two going out in the second round. Duan can hit the ball extremely hard but it is a little inconsistent but at a very generous price against an out of form opponent she has to be the choice.
