Pick: 8* Begu +1.5 Sets or Begu to win (a) Set
Andreescu comes into this match having won her first ever WTA Premier title in Indian Wells, and she faces a pretty quick turnaround against an opponent who has caused her plenty of problems in the past.
Begu has taken a set in both previous meetings (winning in Fed Cup last year) and with this match scheduled for the night session she’ll be even more comfortable, her game style suited to slower, higher bouncing conditions.
Andreescu is only 18 and after riding the ‘underdog’ tag in recent months the media spotlight now shines directly on her, this is a real letdown spot and she’s already played 31 matches in 2019, take Begu to keep this match close. Begu +1.5 Sets
