Stephens vs Bouchard by Igrok
Stephens (22) will play against Bouchard (42)
Stephens is 10/1 on hard this season, she won the title in Auckland against Goerges and Acapulco against Cibulkova. She had a disappointing first round loss in Merlbourne where she lost against Wang in straight sets.
Bouchard already won 14 matches this season, significant better than last year. She reached the final in Hobart and Kuala Lumpur both lost. Here she suffered in 1R against Ozaki losing the first set 2-6.
Bouchard will need to raise her level to compete against Stephens who will have the edge in my opinion in this match-up considering the slower and bouncy court in California.
