These players have met 8 times with all matches being won by Serena.
Even if there is a clear favorite in this one I think Safavova has a very good chance of taking a set here. Serena has had a strange start in this tournament with a very weird match against Soler-Espinosa where she was down 5-0 in the first set. She did manage an incredible comeback and won that set eventually but overall the impression was not that good. After that she faced Pironkova and again she made some strange unforced errors especially on the return of serve so I don't think she is at her best here. Another factor that should be kept in mind is that Serena retired last week from the Wuhan tournament after not finishing the first set against Cornet.
Safarova has played very well from the start. She defeated Giorgi and Barthel both in straight sets. She is a good offensive player with a decent service and I think if she focuses her best tennis she is capable of even managing a surprise here. That being said I think she well capable of taking a set here and the odds offered by the bookies are quite good.
I think Safarova will manage to take the first set so in my opinion this bet has good value.
