Tsurenko to Win
Despite the win, Davis was not very solid defensively in the previous round. And although she converted 7 break points, her percentage was just 47%, as you had 15 chances. Tsurenko’s stats are a little higher, so we expect her to get the win.
Under 21.5 Total Games
The duels played by both players on the previous day had a total of 18 games. Whoever dominates this duel will probably need the same amount or less than 21.5 games. Lesia’s last 5 duels ended in straight sets and under 21.5 games, so it wouldn’t be weird if that happens again.
