Our favourite Sloane Stephens vs Emiliana Arango – match predictions

Stephens returns to familiar Mexican territory with a hard-fought win over compatriot Ann Li, while Arango scripts her biggest victory yet by toppling 11th seed Anastasia Potapova.

2-0 to Sloane Stephens @ 3/4 (1.75)

While her recent performances have been mixed, Sloane remains a formidable presence with her wealth of experience, making her a formidable contender in Guadalajara. She will be up against Arango, who enters the clash with nothing to lose in her maiden WTA 1000 main draw campaign. As the young upstart challenges the more experienced Stephens, we are backing experience to triumph against Arrango. It will be a quick humbling, one that sees Stephens register her second successive 2-0 victory.

Over 20.5 Games @ 83/100 (1.83)

Ann Li made Sloane to sweat in their round one meeting. Emiliana will force a similar workout by the American ace after impressing in her 19-game victory over Potapova. Stephens should be better prepared for the Colombian but it will not be an easy victory with Arango having nothing to lose. Based on this, we expect the match to go the distance as blows are exchanged with over 20.5 games played.
