MERTENS (1.46) V KASATKINA (3.05)
Both these players good on clay but especially Kasatkina who has a career record of 83-27 compared to Mertens 65-40. Head to head is tied at 1-1 with Mertens winning their encounter on hard courts and Kasatkina winning the only time they have met on clay. I am happy to lay Mertens at her current price as I fancy Kasatkina to cause her a lot of problems today.
SEVASTOVA (1.85) V OSTAPENKO (2.12)
Sevastova leads the head to head 1-0 having won in Moscow in 2015 when Ostapenko retired trailing in the second set having already lost the first set. Neither player has been in particularly good form but Ostapenko looks totally shot of any confidence and once the match starts going against her she seems like she cannot turn it around. Both very happy on clay but I have to favour Sevastova here and will look to back her at anything above 2.20+
TORMO (2.04) V PETKOVIC (1.91)
Both players happy on clay but I just favour Tormo here as Petkovic can be very hit and miss and seems to be even more unpredictable. Tormo reached the QF at Bogota and has come through both her matches here so far. I expect a fast start from Tormo so happy to back her above 2.0+ and will work my position from there. I either see Tormo winning in two or it going three sets.
