Belinda Bencic vs Lauren Davis – Match Predictions

As Belinda Bencic and Lauren Davis set their sights on a quarter-final spot, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Belinda Bencic to Win in Three Sets

It’s important to point out that Lauren Davis is coming into this match with a ton of confidence. She defeated Sloane Stephens in the previous round, and is coming into this match on the back of three consecutive wins. However, the American hasn’t fared too well against today’s opponent in the past.

As a matter of fact, Lauren Davis is currently 0 for 3 against Bencic, and all the previous skirmishes between these players took place on this surface. Interestingly, the last two clashes between these players ended in three sets; and considering Lauren Davis’ last five matches ended in maximum sets, we believe that Belinda Bencic will maintain her perfect record against Lauren Davis, but she’ll surrender a set in the process.

At Least 21 Total Games

We’ve already established that the previous two encounters between these players ended in maximum sets. It may interest you to know that while these players met three times, all of those encounters went above the 20.5 games line. This has also been the case with five of Belinda Bencic’s last seven matches (excluding retirements). It may interest you to know that six of Lauren Davis’ last seven singles matches ended in three sets, and all of those matches featured at least 21 games. That said, we’re taking the over option for this match.
