SEVASTOVA TO BEAT STOSUR @ 5-4
Stosur leads the head to head 2-1 but there is no doubt she is in decline, her serve is not the major weapon it once was. Both players enjoy playing on clay with records of 138 wins 67 losses for Stosur and 151 wins to 70 losses for Sevastova. If Sevastova can keep the ball away from Stosur's forehand then she is likely to have success here. Sevastova played well in reaching the QF at Charleston and she will be looking to gather some good ranking points during the clay courts season.
KONJUH V KONTAVEIT OVER 20.5 GAMES @ 10-11
This should be a very close match, both players at ease on clay, the hold and break stats and almost identical on clay and in their only meeting Kontaveit came through in three very tight sets. Kontaveit has been in superb form winning her three matches here and last week losing in the final at Biel. Konjuh might be a little rusty as she has not played since Miami so feel Kontaveith will start stronger before Konjuh fights back.
BERTENS TO BEAT KUZNETSOVA @ 11-8
Bertens leads the head to head 2-1, both players are at home on clay but it is on the return of serve where Bertens is in front of her Russian opponent, breaking on average 8% more. Win-loss records over the last 12 months on clay favour Bertens heavily with her record of 26-7 impressive compared to Kuznetsova's 9-4. Kuznetsova has not played since Miami and she is a player who tends to play well with regular games as it allows her to get into a rhythm.
