SASNOVICH (1.87) V HSIEH (2.06)
Hsieh leads the head to head 1-0 winning last year in straight sets at Tokyo on hard courts. Both hold serve around the 66% mark but Hsieh has a big advantage on the return breaking serve on average 6% more than Sasnovich. Both players have been in good form but I just feel Hsieh’s variation will be the deciding factor here. I will look to back Hsieh at the current price and lay around the 1.30 mark, If Sasnovich wins the first set then I would look to lay around the 1.20 mark and then back her around the 1.50 mark as I certainly see this going three sets.
GARCIA (1.62) V TSURENKO (2.46)
Garcia has the better serve and Tsurenko has a better return game. Respective records on hard courts read 23-16 compared to Tsurenko 23-12. Tsurenko started the season well reaching the final at Brisbane before losing early at the Australian Open. She hits the ball flat and hard and will cause Garcia problems here. I will lay Garcia at her current price and look to relay if she starts well around the 1.20 mark and look to exit the trade if she hits 2.0+
