WTA ACAPULCO | RUS TO BEAT STEPHENS @ 3-1

Rus
WTA ACAPULCO

RUS TO BEAT STEPHENS @ 3-1 

Last 10 matches their respective records are Stephens 2-8 and Rus 7-3. Rus is better on serve and return stats and in the better form, Stephens has gone AWOL after winning the US Open and I think similar to Madison Keys is a player to avoid in the smaller tournaments.

VOEGELE TO BEAT SAKKARI @ 11-10 

Voegele won their only meeting in straight sets losing just 2 games in the process. Voegele has the better serve stats, better returns stats greater variation to her game with excellent net play and has won their only meeting easily and Sakkari has been in poor form only winning matches in Dubai last week after losing every match she had played in 2018

VOEGELE                          65.2%                                     45.6% 

ROYG TO BEAT BEGU @ 7-4 

Begu leads the head to head 2-1, both known better as clay courters but Royg is showing better recent form on hard courts with a 15-11 win loss record over 12 months compared to Begu’s 10-13 both are decent on serve but I do favour Royg here as the player in better form.

WTA INDIAN WELLS 

LEPCHENKO TO BEAT TOMLJANOVIC @ EVENS 

Lepchenko leads the head to head 3-0 all victories on hard courts. The serve and hold stats for each player over the last 12 months on hard courts are below and as you can see they heavily favour Lepchenko on serve. Neither player has been in particularly great form this season so far but taking into account the h2h record and Toljanovic’s constant fitness concerns then I have to favour Lepchenko
