The battle of the unseeded players is about to commence at the 2023 French Open. It’s Nosvoka vs Kovinic in the first round, but what should you bet on? Check out these WTA French Open predictions below.
These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Noskova vs Kovinic – Match Predictions
This is a pretty tough match to call given the similarity in rankings for these two. Noskova is ranked 50 in the world, whereas Kovinic is ranked 68 in the world. Furthermore, they’ve never played each other before, which makes the predictions even tougher. But when you look at things like form and suitability to clay court tennis, it becomes clearer as to which way this match will go.
On that note, let me now reveal my top two predictions ahead of this first-round clash.
Noskova to Win
Looking back at recent results, it seems more likely that Noskova will come away with the win in this match. She’s produced solid results in recent weeks, playing in a mixture of WTA and Challenger events. And she is ranked marginally higher than Kovinic at 50 in the world. At the same time, the odds for Noskova to win this match are attractive.
Noskova Games Handicap -0.5
It’s unusual for this ‘games handicap’ to be set at -0.5, but we may as well take advantage of it since it’s offered. As you may already know, with this handicap, Noskova needs to win by more than 0.5 games. Of course, this is guaranteed as long as she wins the match, so it seems logical to shoot for this market too.
Noskova vs Kovinic Preview
Now that you’ve had time to digest these tennis predictions today, let’s address each of these two players before the action begins.
Linda Noskova Preview
As mentioned earlier, Noskova is ranked 50 in the world at the moment. So she is slightly higher ranked than Kovinic – 18 places, to be precise. This isn’t a huge difference, of course, but it all factors in when producing predictions. As for her recent results, she made the last 64 in Rome followed by the quarter-finals of a Challenger in France.
Danka Kovinic Preview
In her last three tournaments, Kovinic has managed to win an ITF event, which she won at the end of April. This was followed by ‘round of 64’ appearances in Madrid and Rome. However, during her match in Rome, she was forced to retire from the match with an injury. Because of this, there are some question marks over Kovinic’s fitness going into Roland Garros. This also gives a slight edge to Noskova, in my opinion.
Noskova vs Kovinic Head to Head
Noskova and Kovinic have never played each other on the WTA Tour. Therefore, this first-round match will be the first time that they compete against one another. And let’s be honest – it’s often more exciting when you don’t know exactly what to expect from these matchups!
