Fed Cup WG 1: Czech Republic vs Switzerland
?? Barbora Strycova vs ?? Belinda Bencic
I’m going to side with Strycova here. I think Strycova really thrives in the Fed Cup atmosphere and will have less pressure on her here as Kvitova is likely to give the Czech Republic the lead in the first rubber. I think this is a good match-up for Strycova who did win the only previous match between the pair. Strycova likes playing against flat hitters, Bencic has a very consistent, flat game. Strycova has more variety and is better defensively and has also been involved in more big matches in the last 12 months, Happy to side with Strycova here.
