The Line: -- Over/Under:
Croatian tennis player, Petra Martic has made it into the second round of the 2019 Zhengzhou Open in China. At this stage of the tournament, Martic will play against Fiona Ferro from France.
Fiona Ferro enters this match having beaten her previous opponent in straight sets. During the win, Ferro impressed with her receiving as she won 59% of her receiving points which allowed her to break her opponent’s on 7 occasions. The serving was also solid from Fiona Ferro as she managed to win 63% of her service games. Ferro enters this match following a solid US Open campaign where she made the third round. That being said, this is expected to be a tough match as Fiona Ferro is playing against the number 7 seed.
Looking at Petra Martic, the Croatian superstar also won her previous match in straight sets. During the victory, Martic won 78% of her service games and 6 return games. The service was especially impressive from Petra Martic as she won 65% of her service points. Petra Martic enters this tournament following a strong US Open campaign where she made the fourth round of the tournament. Martic was eventually eliminated by Serena Williams. It has been a very strong few months for Martic as she has played well in big tournaments like the French Open and Wimbledon. Considering her recent form, Petra Martic should be confident as she enters this match.
This will be the first time that Petra Martic and Fiona Ferro will be playing each other at a WTA event.
Fiona Ferro has been solid but I see her losing this match. Petra Martic has been significantly better over the past few months and the Croatian looks in outstanding touch as she enters this match. I see Petra Martic winning this match in straight sets.
