3 Total Sets @ 11/8 (2.38)
Both Brady and Stearns have impressed in recent outings, showcasing that resilient spirit to overcome the odds. Their recent defeats have not been easy on their rivals, draining them of stamina in three-set battles. As they meet each other at the National Tennis Center in Beijing, we expect to see more of the same. Blows will be exchanged as has been the pattern in their outings with a deciding set needed to separate them in the first round of the China Open.
Over 21.5 Games @ 17/20 (1.85)
Stearns’ victory over Laura Pigossi only saw 14 games being played. It was one fewer than her victory over Ann-Lena Friedsam which saw 15 games being played. As she puts the qualifiers behind her, the quality of the opposition will improve drastically. We expect a rousing encounter as Brady will not be an easy pushover as she looks to climb up the rankings after her two-year layoff. With the match likely needing three sets to separate them, the Over 21.5 games selection will likely come to fruition.
