Taylor Townsend vs Martina Trevisan – match predictions

Martina Trevisan lost only a game in the first qualifying round and is 64 positions higher in the rankings than Townsend but the American is still considered the favorite to win this match.

Martina Trevisan to win

Townsend took a month off before returning to action in Cincinnati. She barely made it to the second qualifying round while Trevisan dropped only a game in her previous match. Given the recent form, Trevisan is the better player and it makes it worthy to go with her in this match for the given odds.

First set over 8.5 games

The stakes are high in this match as the loser will most likely miss the tournament. Both players have a lot to prove and feel that can go a huge step forward in the second part of the season. There will be many ups and downs throughout the match for both players but the opening set will go over 8.5 games in total.
