Big match scheduled today between Stephens and Kerber where I will bet on Stephens to win. She is the better player at the moment as she is in much more better form imo.
Sloane Stephens is coming to this match after defeating Tomljanovic, Niculescu and Muguruza dropping only a set against Niculescu. She is playing very good and her performance against Muguruza was absolutely outstanding in my eyes. She won 3 of the 4 meetings against Kerber. Stephens should be priced as favourite to win this match in my opinion.
Angelique Kerber, on the other hand, is coming to this match after winning against Larsson, Pavlyuchenkova and Wang. She dropped only a set. Her only good match was against Larsson. Yesterday, she was in big troubles. Wang needed 2 points to win the whole match but, after 2:55 hours, Angelique was able to win against the qualifier number 125 in the world. Today, she will be a little bit tired and she will meet a much more better player than Wang. I see her in big troubles. Kerber is not the same, she recovered some form but she is struggling right now and I don't see her at her best at the moment.
These odds are a big gift. Sloane will play at home, she is leading h2h and she is playing much more better than the german. She should win this one.
