Can Seveastova deliver in Russia?

29-year-old Latvian Anastasija Sevastova has won just one match this year. That happened against Serena Williams over the weekend in the Fed Cup. She has entered Brisbane, Adelaide and the Australian Open of course, and lost her first match at each of them.

Interestingly this time last year, following the opening Fed Cup action of the year, she lost in the first round of her next two singles tournaments. She was in much better form twelve months ago as well.

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 8 January)

Sevastova and Garcia have met twice before. Both of those meetings happened in Mallorca. Garcia won the first meeting which was the final before the Latvian turned things around in the following season’s semi-final meeting at the event.

 

Can Garcia come through an even-looking contest?

France’s Caroline Garica has had a little more success under her belt this season than her match opponent here. She has won two of five matches played this season. Her most recent action was at the Australian Open where she beat Madison Brengle before falling to Ons Jabeur who went on to have that brilliant run to the semi-finals.

At one stage of last year, Garcia was up in the world top-twenty, but she dropped to 45th at the end of the year. Whichever way you look at this fixture, it is probably going to be a very even contest. But the theme between these two is a straight-sets success for the victor. It’s hard to imagine that whoever is going to lose the opening set in this contest is going to have enough to fight back.
