The Line: -- Over/Under:
Su-Wei Hsieh and Caroline Wozniacki meet in the fourth round of the 2019 tennis Miami Open.
Su-Wei Hsieh is coming off a three sets win over Naomi Osaka that took 32 games to decide. In the victory, Hsieh won 69 percent of her first serve points and 51 percent of her second serve points. Hsieh won 62 percent of her total service points and converted on five of her six break points. Hsieh showed great fight after dropping the first set and winning a second set tiebreak, and she now has three wins this year over top-10 players, the most she’s ever had in a single year. With the pace she hits the ball with and her return skills, Hsieh is quietly becoming a trusted player who can make deep runs in tournaments. Hsieh has a chance to make her first ever quarterfinal in a Premier Mandatory. Hsieh has won six of her last eight matches on outdoor hard court.
Caroline Wozniacki is coming off a straight sets win over Monica Niculescu that took 23 games to decide. In the victory, Wozniacki won 59 percent of her first serve points and 55 percent of her second serve points. Wozniacki won 58 percent of her told service lints and converted on all four of her break points. Wozniacki is returning well and finding ways to win, but she must play better to continue marching on, as she’s given her opponents 21 break points in four sets. It’s only a matter of time before that catches up to her. Wozniacki hopes to win three straight matches for the first time since winning the China Open back in October. Wozniacki hopes to make the quarterfinals of the Miami Open for the sixth time in her career. Wozniacki has won four of her last six matches on outdoor hard court.
These two have played four times and Wozniacki has won all four matches, including the most recent meeting in Malaysia back in 2015. Three of the four matches were decided in straight sets.
Wozniacki has clearly owned the h2h, but these two haven’t played in four years, and you could argue Hsieh is playing some of the best tennis of her life. Hsieh is far more consistent and confident than she was years ago. Wozniacki is winning and has the experience edge, but she’s not exactly playing well and her serve has been questionable at best.
I like Hsieh to make her first ever quarterfinal in a Premier Mandatory.
