Katie Volynets to Take at Least One Set
Being the more experienced player, it’s no surprise that Shelby Rogers is favoured ahead of her opponent today. However, we haven’t been too impressed with her performance so far this year. We would like to point out that Shelby Rogers has participated in five tournaments in 2023. She exited two of those in the first round, two in the second round, and one in the third round.
On the other hand, Katie Volynets reached the semi-final of the Austin event last week. Considering she won the most recent encounter between these players in straight sets, we are fairly confident that Volynets will take at least one set from this match.
Katie Volynets + 3.5 Games
We’ve already established that Shelby Rogers has underperformed since the start of the year. Furthermore, when she does win, those matches are usually not one-sided. It’s worth mentioning that Rogers surrendered at least one set in five of her last six matches, and she failed to cover the projected handicap spread in four of them. For this reason, we are backing Katie Volynets to cover +3.5 games.
Katie Volynets vs Shelby Rogers Preview
Now that we’ve established our picks for this match, let’s see how Volynets and Rogers have fared so far this year.
Katie Volynets advanced to the semi-final of the WTA event at Austin last week, losing to Varvara Gracheva in three sets. That was the American’s best performance in any tournament this year. Volynets will go up against Shelby Rogers today; it’ll be interesting to see how she matches up against her compatriot.
On the other hand, Shelby Rogers has struggled to find her best form of late. She has only been past the second round of one of five WTA tournaments this year. Rogers will set her sights on a second round spot; and she’ll fancy her chances against Volynets.
