This looks set to be an epic battle on Friday between two in-form scrappers in world number 35 Caroline Garcia and number eight Jessica Pegula. 28-year-old Pegula overcame Emma Raducanu in two tight sets on Thursday after a choppier opener against Marta Kostyuk but the American has claimed back-to-back Women’s Doubles titles at the Washington Open and last week’s Canada Masters for some superb form in these conditions. Former world number four Caroline Garcia put in an assured performance to beat Elise Mertens in straight sets, backing-up an impressive three-set thriller against Maria Sakkari in the second round. The Frenchwoman, also 28, has already won two tournaments this summer in some of the best form of her career, adding the Bad Homburg Open and Poland Open to a total of nine WTA titles. Garcia is the more explosive but Pegula the more measured, making for a likely three-setter.
Garcia beat Pegula in straight sets at the start of this season in Sydney but Pegula leads 2-1 in their head-to-head record and home advantage should give her an edge in some key moments. Back the US number one to win at least a set and leave the winner up to chance. You could consider taking the match to need a decider but this seems a fair risk.
