a weapon of mass destruction on grass. Conversely, her 61 in frame makes it hard for her to handle the low, uneven bounces on the surface. Anyway, the second seed owns one of the best serves on tour; i.e. Interesting matchup here. Pliskova, the 2017 champion, suffered a shocking defeat to her twin sister Krystina in Birmingham last week. Or not so shocking, since their head to head stands at five wins apiece.

Kiki Bertens has never lost to Ajla Tomljanovic. Bertens had a seemingly underwhelming run on American hard courts for a woman with her ranking, exiting in the round of 16 in Canada, the first round in Cincinnati and the third round of the US Open. Bertens, currently in the top 10 sits thirty eight spots above her opponent. Both of their previous matches went to three sets. However, a look at her opponents in those matches: Bianca Andreescu, Venus Williams, and Julia Gorges puts the losses in some perspective. Bertens will likely find a way past Tomljanovic as she has before: with some difficulty.

In her debut against Samantha Stosur, the German won an outstanding 71% of her second serve return points. Peterson better make a high percentage of her first serves if she wants to make this a competitive match. It might not even matter, though, as the Swede is winless in seven matches against top 20 rivals, on any surface. The reigning Wimbledon champion may not be enjoying her best season, but it would be foolish to rule out a return to dominance on grass, where she has owns a robust track record (69-26 in her career, per Tennis Abstract).

As the week progresses, the 2019 Nature Valley International in Eastbourne continues to deliver high-caliber tennis. Here are some Round of 16 matches to watch. Andy Murrays doubles cameo came to an end on Tuesday, so the womens draw is now unquestionably the main event in Eastbourne.

a common void bet occurs in tennis when a player retires through injury. Void bets occur when the bet is not decided as a win or loss and the stake is returned to the player. This happens when a match is suspended, posponed, or cancelled e.g. Note: bookmakers' policies on voided matches changes so we always recommend players to check the specific terms of bookmakers they bet with to ensure they understand under what circumstances they void bets.

Riskes win against Kerber is a sign that she is already comforatble in China and ready for a deep run. Saisai Zhengs first round was smoother. While she might be marginally fresher for the match today, she will also have less of a clear indication of where her game is in Zhengzhou. Zheng, however, won their most recent match in straight sets last year in Hiroshima. Riske and Zheng have played six times with Riske winning four of those encoutners. Alison Riske pulled of a major upset defeating Angelique Kerber in three sets, saving a match point along the way.

Karolina Pliskova and Polona Hercog have played five times. Pliskova has only lost once. Hercog, both lower ranked and in poorer form, registered a commanding win over Meiling Wang, but lacks the firepower to take on a player like Pliskova. Currently ranked number two in the world trailing Ashleigh Barty by only 376 points, Pliskova started 2019 auspiciously by defeating Serena Williams at the Australian Open. Pliskovas form has been iffy in 2019. She has had excellent performances interspersed with mystifying losses to lower ranked players.

Ostapenko, however, has proven that, on her day, she can defeat anyone. Ostapenko blasted her way to a French Open title in 2017. Jelena Ostapenko and Aryna Sabalenka, are both exceptional players. She not only showed hard-hitting, but mental strength, coming from behind to defeat Simona Halep in three sets. Her ranking has plummeted and her results have been erratic. She won, but the scoreline was 6-3, 0-6, 6-2. Sabalenka is still on surer footing tennis-wise than Ostapenko and is likely to win. During that tournament her average forehand speed was higher than Andy Murrays. Tursunov announced he was no longer working with Sabalenka, but Sabalenka posted at length on Instagram about how much she valued and needed his help. Sabalenkas on court accomplishments most recently the doubles title at the US Open have been overshadowed by the uncertainty surrounding her relationship with her coach Dmitry Tursunov. Her first match in Zhengzhou illustrates this. Since then her all or nothing game has been more nothing than all.
