The odds in this article were correct at the time of writing, and the odds are subject to change. We recommend checking with the bookmaker before placing the bet.
In her recent outing against Martina Trevisan, Cornet was down in both sets but came back twice to showcase her resilience. On the other hand, Navarror made little work of Nadia Podoroska, demonstrating her dominance by not allowing her opponent a single breakpoint throughout the entire match and only conceding two games. She come in this duel on the back of her final defeat in W100 Ilkley and will count on her strong performances to get past Cornet. With Cornet struggling and Navarro enjoying a fine run, we are backing the American to triumph in this duel.
The 22-year-old is a former Girls semi-finalist at Wimbledon and has the pedigree to go the distance on the green surface. Moreover, the American is arriving on the back of a defeat to Mrijam Bjorklund in the W100 Ilkley final. Navarro is firing on all cylinders and will fancy her chances against Cornet, who has lost two of her last three outings on Grass and struggled in her win over Trevisan. Based on this, we are backing a straight sets victory for Navarro, as has been the case in each of her five victories on grass this season.
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Bad Homburg Open.
Against Trevisan, Cornet displayed her determination by bouncing back from a challenging situation in both sets. Despite facing a 2-4 deficit in the first set, she rallied and emerged victorious with a score of 6-4, 6-2. This win marks only the fifth time Cornet has advanced past the opening round of a WTA tournament this season, and the second time in June. Just a few weeks ago, her tour-level win-loss record stood at 3-10, but she demonstrated her resilience by defeating Maria Sakkari and reaching the semifinals in Nottingham.
In the first round, the promising 22-year-old tennis player experienced a last-minute change in opponents, facing lucky loser Podoroska instead. However, this did not deter her as she swiftly dismissed the former Roland-Garros semifinalist in just 58 minutes, winning the match with an impressive score of 6-2, 6-0. Notably, Navarro is currently competing in her first month of professional grass events. Despite her limited experience, she has already accumulated five victories on this surface.
