2-0 to Sloane Stephens @ 1/2 (1.50)

Stephens has struggled to get the ball rolling and the the former US Open champion desperate to get to her best again. However, in comparison to Sherif, Stephens will be pleased with her record. Her Egyptian rival has only played twice and was forced to retire in the latter at the Australian Open. Her form prior was nothing to write about, which adds confidence to our straight set victory for Stephens punt.

Under 19.5 Games @ 18/25 (1.72)

In her last match against Elise Mertens, Sherif was a set down and trailing 2-0 in the other before retiring. Against Caroline Dolehide a weeks earlier, she was dispatched off in 17 games.
