VEKIC TO BEAT SEVASTOVA @ 13-10
Vekic has been showing the form that made her a hot prospect three years ago. She hits the ball well and has an excellent serve and good movement all round she has no real weakness except lack of confidence. Sevastova is another hugely talented player but more at home on clay as shown by her 13-13 record on hard courts over the last 12 months compared to Vekic’s 20-13 record over the same time period.
BARTY TO BEAT STEPHENS @ 11-10
Barty has been in excellent form all season and is playing with such confidence that she has to be the call against a talented but frustrating Stephens who has all the talent in the world but not the mental strength and determination to tough out matches. Barty never gives up and she is a class above Stephens in this aspect.
