PERA TO BEAT SEVASTOVA @ 6-4
Over the last 12 months Sevastova has struggled on hard courts with a win loss record of 4-8 compared to Pera’s 9-9. Pera is also ahead on both service hold and the percent she breaks her opponent. Sevastova is very clever, intelligent player but on this occasion I feel Pera will have too much power on this surface.
ALEXANDROVA TO BEAT GAUFF @ EVENS
Both players have similar records, Gauff been in good form reaching the semi finals in her last tournament at Adelaide, I am going to side with Alexandranova in what is a bit of a coin toss of a match as I feel she is the more consistent as currently Gauff can be brilliant one day but tends to be a little erratic.
