Torro-Flor vs Peng by Tennisguy
Torro-Flor is ranked 50 and Peng 42. They have never met before in a match.
Torro-Flor is the recent winner of the Marrakech WTA tournament that took place last week. She managed to get some good wins there and captured her first WTA tournament of her career. Though it was a great achievement for her I think in most of these cases when an underdog manages such a surprising performance they don't continue to back it off, at least not on the next tournament. I think she needs some time to rest and I'm not sure she is going to be in her best shape.
Peng also played last week in the Marrakech WTA tournament and had to retire do to some health problems in the quarterfinals. I don't think that will be a factor today because I doubt that she would have played here in Oeiras if she wasn't sure she fully recovered. I say this because the French Open is very close now and I don't think she would have risked and prolonged an injury by playing in this tournament. I really believe she will be at her best in this match and that the problems she had last week are completely gone.
Peng this year has some good wins on clay against players like Caroline Garcia, Madison Keys and had a very close match against Sara Errani which she lost in two tiebreaks 7-6(6), 7-6(5). To have such a close match on clay against a player like Errani is not something that a lot of players can say.
I really like the odds on Peng and I think there is good value in backing her in this match.
