Donna Vekic (-110) vs. Julia Goerges (+100)

Monday, 11 a.m. ET

My line: Vekic -135

Vekic, who’s slowly risen through the ranks since last summer, currently sits at No. 22 in the world. And the Croat is poised to continue that climb.

On the other hand, after winning her opening tournament of 2019 in Auckland, Goerges has had a fairly disappointing year.

Both players looked impressive in the first week. Vekic hasn’t faced the stiffest competition but did secure a quality second-round win against the always-dangerous Kaia Kanepi. Goerges has the best win between the two against No. 7 seed Kiki Bertens in blowout fashion.

The biggest storyline for Goerges in this tournament so far has been the improvement of her second serve. The German has won more than 55% of second-serve points in all three matches, compared to a 47.6% average for the year. If she can maintain that clip, she can beat anyone on Tour since her first serve is one of the best in women’s tennis.
