DUBAI OPEN 2020: BLINKOVA TO WIN
SASNOVICH V BLINKOVA OVER 21.5 GAMES @ 2.050 Pinnacle
Met once last season with Sasnovich coming through in three sets, very evenly matched Sasnovich has the greater variety to her game but I expect Blinkova to come through in either two tight sets or in three.
PAVYLUCHENKOVA V BENCIC OVER 21.5 GAMES @ 1.93 Pinnacle
Bencic leads the head to head 5-1 on hard courts it is 3-1 and this game spread has been covered in 4 of the 6 meetings.
MERTENS V WANG OVER 21.5 GAMES @ 2.0 Pinnacle
Wang leads the head to head 3-1 but more importantly, all the matches have gone to three sets, they are very equal in terms of rankings with just 8 places separating them and very similar styles in which neither has the power to hit the other off-court and I believe this all points to another three-set slog.
