Our favourite Anhelina Kalinina vs Sofia Kenin predictions
This will be the fourth time these two player meet this season. Kalinina won the last match but Kenin has the lead.
Anhelina Kalinina +2.5 @ 17/20 (1.85)
Kenin is a former Grand Slam champion and has a better overall record on this surface. However, Kalinina is the one who won the last match between the two, and she did that pretty easily. This will be Kenin’s seventh match in nine days in two locations, and that schedule will take its toll in this match. Even if the American manages to win, Kalinina should cover the +2.5 games spread.

Both players had a great start to the tournament proving that they are in good shape. The majority of their previous matches were done in straight sets but this one will be much more difficult. They both serve well on this surface and there will not be many breaks of serve which will take this match over 21.5 games in total.
