|Date & Time||Monday September 24, 2018, 1:30 AM (EDT)|
The Line: -- Over/Under:
Caroline Garcia will be playing Kateřina Siniaková in the second round of the 2018 Wuhan Open.
Kateřina Siniaková played well in her opening round match as she won her fixture in straight sets. In that victory, Kateřina Siniaková was exceptionally strong at receiving serve as she managed to win over 50% of the points played during her opponents serve. While this aspect of her game was impressive, Kateřina Siniaková didn’t serve well as she allowed her opponent to break her serve on 4 occasions. This will need to improve in this match since Kateřina Siniaková will struggle if she loses that many games to Caroline Garcia. That being said, Kateřina Siniaková has had lots of success in China having won a WTA title and a second place in this country. The conditions seem to suit Kateřina Siniaková which means that she should be able to cause problems for Caroline Garcia.
On the other side of the court, Caroline Garcia looks like a player in poor form. Garcia had a poor US Open as she was eliminated in the third round and last week, Garcia only made it into the second round of the Pan Pacific Open. It is clear that Garcia is a very talented player but she looks like she is lacking confidence and that is causing her to make mistakes when selecting shots to play. It will be hard for Caroline Garcia to turn things around in China against Kateřina Siniaková who is very good in this country.
Kateřina Siniaková and Caroline Garcia have played 4 times in the past with both players winning on 2 occasions.
While Caroline Garcia is a very talented player, I see her losing. Kateřina Siniaková is in better form and has a great record in China. Garcia is playing poor tennis and is struggling. Adding up all the information, I see Kateřina Siniaková winning this match.
