STRYCOVA (2.30) V MERTENS (1.73)
Mertens leads the head to head 1-0, Strycova has yet to lose a set here and been playing very impressively, Mertens came through a tough three-set match defeating Wang. Both players are happy on the grass and I think we see three sets here if Mertens is successful or two tight sets if Strycova comes through. I would favour Strycova to come through but I want to lay Mertens at a lower price than what she is currently at so will be looking to lay Mertens at 1.50 or below.
BARTY (1.16) V RISKE (6.80)
Riske leads the head to head 1-0, both players are excellent on the grass and both players are in spectacular form Barty winning the French Open then transferring her form onto the grass by winning Birmingham and not dropping a set in her three victories here. Riske won Hertogenbosch and has come through some tough matches here beating fellow grass court lover Donna Vekic and then yesterday a huge win in defeating Bencic despite being 3-0 down in the second set and facing three break points on her serve. Lay Barty for a low-risk trade her current price, the possibility is to either trade out the liability once she hits 1.25+ then play with the free trade money or just green out as I think Barty comes through but not easily.
