Diyas ML for 3 units. Diyas beat Niculescu 2-0 on a hardcourt in Cincinnati last year. Diyas just beat a decent player in Blinkova 2-0. Niculescu only won one game on her serve the last time these two played and I like Diyas’s breaking ability. I think Diyas must have a read or tip on her opponents serve, I like this spot.
Kozlova Kateryna ML for 3 units. Koslova beat Duan in Duan’s home country 2-0 last time they played on a hard court. Duan lost more games on her serve than she won in their most recent meeting. In that same meeting Kozlova held her serve well. I think Kateryna is going to have a strong 2018. Best of luck.
