WTA CINCINNATI: SABALENKA TO BEAT KEYS @ 2.76

SABALENKA TO BEAT KEYS @ 2.76

Sabalenka has been playing lights out tennis so far in defeating Pliskova, Konta and Garcia and last week she defeated Wozniacki, Keys looked down and out in her first match here against Sands being a set and a break down but she tough back and managed to scrap through on a tie-break then she beat Giorgi but impressively defeated Kerber in three sets. I just feel Sabalenka is in better form, has slightly more variation to her game and Keys still looks little inconsistent to me

SABALENKA 72.7% 36.8% 26-12(58-27)

KEYS 77.4% 33.6% 14-7(137-83)


BARTY TO BEAT HALEP @ 2.75

Barty lost to Halep last week in straight sets but I am taking her to reverse the scoreline here as Halep really does look like she is running on fumes at the minute, she managed to dig herself out of a hole abasing Tomljanovic despite being 3-0 down in the third set she won 6 games in a row to come through. Both have been in fantastic form but I am taking Barty as the fresher player and with the better serve to come through.

BARTY 75.4% 36.3% 23-10(90-39)

HALEP 68.9% 45.5% 30-7(194-87)

ANISIMOVA TO BEAT SVITOLINA @ 4.2

Svitolina has been solid so far this year but her serve continues to worry and Anismova will be looking to be aggressive and capitalise on her weakness. Anismova has looked in excellent form this week beating both Babos and Martic in straight sets and although this is a step up in class 4.2 is far too high a price for a young player with great potential playing with great confidence and in excellent form

ANISIMOVA 68% 51.9% 19-10(29-14)

SVITOLINA 70.3% 43.7% 29-8(185-81)
