2-1 to Beatriz Haddad Maia
The bookmakers believe Haddad Maia is the favourite in this clash and with good reason. Her powerful serve and aggressive game suit the surface. She has found it difficult to make the transition from clay to court and will be looking to get the better of Putintseva in this duel, who has only played a single game on the surface before their opening round fixture. However, if their last meeting is any barometer, it will not be easy to find a winner. Based on this, we are backing a three-set victory for her.
Over 20.5 Games
The last time the ladies clashed with each other, a winner was difficult to be found. The second set was decided on a tiebreaker in favour of Putintseva while Haddad Maia triumphed in the final and decided set in the same manner. Given their current form, coming into the meeting on the back of defeats and not at peak physical fitness, we expect mistakes to be made and sets to be dragged on. There were be extended number of games played, making the Over 20.5 Games selection optimal for this meeting.
