Mladenovic vs Vandeweghe
Mladenovic pulled through and caused the upset vs Bencic, and I think she is worthy of backing yet again as she faces a player she has complete court superiority over: Vandeweghe who three matches ago played her first indoor match since 2014 (she played one that year, a Futures loss vs Arvidsson). As I wrote in my last preview regarding Mladenovic, she is an indoor specialist who can take on some of the best players when she plays at her highest level.
Vandeweghe leads the head to head 4-1 but all the matches were played on hard and grass, two surfaces where she is a lot better than Mladenovic. Their last encounter was won by Mladenovic, September last year in Wuhan in straight sets.
Looking at how they have fared so far in Hopman Cup, I'd say Mladenovic has impressed more as she caused a big upset vs Bencic while Vandeweghe has taken very expected wins against Hradecka and Arruabarena and a loss to Gavrilova in three sets. Nothing says she will defeat Mladenovic.
