Konta can deliver the win

Britain’s Johanna Konta is looking to get her 2020 up and running. She has so far, had a first round exit at the Brisbane International, and then she was dumped out of the Australian Open in the opening round as well. That was against Ons Jabeur who had a brilliant (and unexpected) run to the semi-finals.

Our betting prediction:
Konta -3.5 games handicap

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 8 January)

Konta has not yet had her service game going yet this year. From her two matches played in the calendar year, she has won 54% only of her service games. So it is form and confidence that she is looking for. Konta has met Dodin once before. That was back at Cagnes-sur-Mer in 2015 when Konta took a straight sets victory.

 

Will qualifier Dodin upset Konta?

23-year-old Dodin, who is currently ranked 159th in the world. She had to qualify to reach the main draw of this St Petersburg event. She failed to make it to the main draw of the Australian Open, falling in the first qualifying round there. The only other action she has had this season was on the ITF where she lost in the second round in action in France.

Dodin got her qualifying win at this event with a straight-sets win over 7th qualifying seed Varvara Gracheva. She then followed that up in the first round of action with a very convincing 6-2 6-2 straight sets victory over Viktoria Kuzmova. This is a player who really should not be troubling Johanna Konta, if of course, Konta is on her game.
