Our favourite Belinda Bencic vs Taylor Townsend – match predictions

In a clash of contrasting styles and compelling storylines, Belinda and Taylor are set to captivate tennis fans in their second-round showdown at the Guadalajara Open. The Swiss ace will want to put her San Diego Open loss behind her while the American will have to enter the top 100 on her mind.

Over 21.5 Games @ 3/4 (1.75)

Bencic is the more established star and have silverware in 2023 to prove her credentials. However, she goes missing sometimes and is going through a similar patch right now. Win or lose, she has dropped a set in each of her last three outings. After watching Taylor’s impressive straight-set victory over Anja Tomljanovic, we expect a heated duel. Given their respective form, we do not expect a swift conclusion to this affair and are expecting to see over 21.5 games in this round two clash.

2-1 to Belinda Bencic @ 29/10 (3.90)

Bencic’s last win came with a 2-1 set score and we are anticipating more of the same in this meeting. While the Swiss star is struggling to impose her game, she will find it difficult against the resurgent Townsend, who reached the third round of the US Open, beating Beatriz Haddad Maia in the process. However, Belinda should have enough in the tank to stop Taylor, but not before the American forces a deciding set in this duel.

Belinda Bencic’s recent form has been a rollercoaster, with impressive quarterfinal runs in Washington DC and Montreal, but surprising early exits in Cincinnati and San Diego. She’s quietly amassed 24 hard-court wins this season, including WTA 500 titles in Adelaide and Abu Dhabi. With high expectations in Guadalajara, Bencic aims to build on her past successes and put behind her the 2022 loss to Sloane Stephens in the second round.

Taylor Townsend preview

After a hiatus of six and a half years, Taylor is returning. She secured an entertaining first-round win against Ajla Tomljanovic and is on the brink of reentering the top 100 rankings. Despite a slow start to the season, Townsend’s recent third-round appearances in Rome and the US Open, along with a runner-up finish in Florence, showcase her resurgence. As she steps onto the courts in Guadalajara, she’s become a formidable opponent to watch in the second round, marking an inspiring comeback in her career.
