KRUNIC TO BEAT MAKAROVA @ 11-8
Krunic leads the head to head 1-0 and is the better player on clay as Makarova can really struggle on the surface.
BUYUKAKCAY TO BEAT SAKKARI @ 5-2
Buyukakcay holds more often and breaks her opponent more regularly than Sakkari and has a win lost record in her home country of 7-3 out her last last 10 matches here and won this tournament in 2016
STRYCOVA TO BEAT SIEGMUND @ EVENS
Neither player in very good form but Siegmund retired from her last match and couple with the fact that Strycova is the better player overall maker her my selection.
BERTENS TO BEAT PLISKOVA @ 11-10
Bertens is a natural on clay as her win loss record shows winning Charleston dropping just one set on the way and her record over the last 12 months is 25-5 compared to Pliskova 10-6. Both hold around the 75% mark on clay but Bertens is far more dangerous on return of serve breaking her opponent 10% more often than Pliskova and she is my nap of this round.
KONTAVEIT TO BEAT MLADENOVIC @ 11-10
Kontaveit breaks more often holds more often and has the better record on clay making her a strong bet at generous odds.
PAVLUYCHENKOVA TO BEAT KEYS @ 2-1
Both have similar records on clay as neither player would have it as their favoured surface, Pavlyuchenkova is more dangerous on return of serve breaking 5% more often and this swings it in her favour in what should be a tight match.
