Our favourite Caroline Dolehide vs Peyton Stearns predictions
Dolehide hopes that she will get back among the Top 100 players in the world in Guadalajara, but she is the underdog in the opening round against Peyton Stearns.
Peyton Stearns -3.5 @ 4/5 (1.80)
Stearns is one of the rising stars of women’s tennis and she proved that she has a bright future reaching the round of 16 at the US Open. Her playing style is perfect for this kind of surface and she can go real deep in Guadalajara. Dolehide is far from that level even though, the 25-year-old has a very good record this season. However, Stearns will take control of the game early on and win this match by covering the -3.5 games spread.
Under 21.5 games @ 17/20 (1.85)
As mentioned, there is a huge gap between these two players, which is shown by their rankings as well. Stearns is on top of her game and just like in their previous meeting, she will win this one quite quickly, getting the job done in less than 21.5 games in total.
