MUCHOVA (1.82) V KEYS (2.18)
Both have been in good form lately, Muchova winning in Seoul dropping just one set on her way to the title and Keys Winning Cincinnati before reaching the last 16 at the US Open before losing to Svitolina and the reaching the QF at Osaka normally I would favour Keys here but the act she retired from her last match to Kerber leaves me favouring Muchova and I am happy to back her.
BACK MUCHOVA @ 1.82 EXIT 1.30
MERTENS (2.04) V MARTIC (1.90)
Mertens leads the head to head 1-0, Mertens 21-12 hard court record this season compared to Martic 13-10, both players have been in decent form and I favour three sets here or at least two tight sets.
BACK MERTENS 2.04 LAY 1.60 USE GREEN ACCUMULATED TO LAY THE FIRST SET WINNER @ 1.30 EXIT 1.80
TOMLJANOVIC (2.24) V RISKE (1.73)
Tomljanovic leads the head to head 2-, Riske has been in brilliant form last week reaching the final at Wuhan but it is always tough trying to follow that up and Tomljanovic hits the ball flat and hard and sometimes Riske can struggle, in the head to head all matches have gone to three sets and if Riske wins the first set then I will be looking to lay at a price around the 1.30 mark at any point during the first set.
LAY RISKE 1.73 RELAY 1.30 EXIT 2.40 1.80
KERBER (1.52) V HERCOG (2.72)
Kerber leads the head to head 5-2, Kerber coming back into form and Hercog continues with her struggles on hard courts this season
BACK KERBER 1.52 REBACK 2.20 EXIT 1.20 1.70
PETKOVIC (6.2) V OSAKA (1.17)
Petkovic leads the head to head 1-0, Osaka should come through but has played a lot of tennis lately and Osaka is far too short a starting price here so is a very low liability lay here.
LAY OSAKA 1.17 EXIT 1.30
