Yulia Putintseva v Jil Belen Teichmann Head to Head
The pair have met once before, in Lexington last year on a hard court, Teichmann winning in straight sets for the loss of just four games.
Putintseva Survives Error-Strewn First Round Match
Putintseva can count herself in many ways fortunate still to be in this tournament, after surviving a first round battle with the Swede, Rebecca Peterson, the world 59.
The pattern of the match was set in the very first game, when Peterson dropped her serve. Both women then struggled to hold, before Peterson levelled things up with a break of her own. However, after a sequence of three more dropped service games, Putintseva had her nose ahead and could close out the set,
In the second set the pair swapped breaks and then this time a sequence of three dropped service games saw Peterson lead. She was able to claim the set but not until she came through a marathon service game in which she squandered five set points and Putintseva missed three chances to break back.
The final set seemed to be heading in favour of the Swede after she broke Putintseva in the opening game, only for it to swing the other way, and the Kazakh player moved a break ahead. She could not maintain her advantage, and twice Peterson had the chance to serve of the match.
On both occasions she could not capitalise on her opportunity and it went to a tie-break,
And it was the Swede who proved the more erratic of the two, and Putintseva was finally able to claim victory after more than three hours on court.
Teichmann Comfortably Beats Russian
Whilst Putintseva was struggling to get past Peterson, the Swiss player Teichmann was enjoying a much more comfortable experience against Anna Blinkova of Russia, the world 77.
Blinkova was the first to drop her serve in the first set and, although she hit back to level immediately, she dropped her serve again next game. The match then went with serve until, serving to stay in the set, Blinkova dropped her serve once more, this time to love.
The second set began with a sequence of six consecutive dropped service games, before Teichmann was finally able to hold. And that proved crucial as she broke the Russian again in their next game, converting her third opportunity, duly serving out for the match.
She spent exactly two hours less on court than Putintseva.
Putintseva v Teichmann Prediction and Tip
Although Putintseva is the higher ranked player and the seed, Teichmann will start the favourite for this match. She won their only previous encounter easily, albeit on a hard court, and, judging by their first round victories, is in much the better form of the two.
