Wimbledon 2023 is approaching quickly, and there are all kinds of warm-up events taking place at the moment. This is true regarding both singles competitions and doubles competitions. For the latter, the German Open doubles event taking place this week is what I would like to bring to your attention today.

The event is currently underway, and the Berlin Open doubles final is set to be played on Sunday, June 25th. As for the full Berlin Open schedule, this will be updated each day on our site, so make sure you tune in to see what’s going on. Anyway, ready to find out a bit more about the top seeds, recent matches, and overall predictions? 

Sure you are! So let me cover these areas now.

Berlin Open Doubles – June 25th Updates

The German Open doubles event has reached its final day, and what a tournament it has been. We’ve witnessed a range of upsets, top-level doubles action, and within the next 24 hours, we will know exactly who the champions are. As a reminder, the final today will be played between the duos of Garcia/Stefani and Siniakova/Vondrousova. For this match, I’ve given my prediction below to show you what to wager on, along with the latest odds.

Yet right before we get to that, let’s have a quick recap of what occurred on June 24th for the Berlin Open doubles event.

Key Results – June 24th

As you will see from the match results below, the semi-finals hosted two huge upsets in this tournament. Both of the top seeds went out to their lower ranked opponents, and here are the two results from Saturday, June 24th:

  • Siniakova/Vondrousova beat Krawczyk/Schuurs (2nd seeds)
  • Garcia/Stefani beat Melichar-Martinez/Perez (1st seeds)

German Open Doubles – Predictions for Finals Day

If we had one seed going up against an underdog today, it might be easy to establish a fairly obvious prediction. Yet because we have two unseeded pairs in the final, things aren’t quite so simple. Regardless, I’ve come up with the following prediction for the final today:

  • Garcia/Stefani to beat Siniakova/Vondrousova – 5/4 Odds

You can’t really argue with the fact that Garcia/Stefani haven’t lost a set in the entire tournament. They also took out the top seeds in convincing fashion last round. In contrast, their opponents have squeezed through twice in a third set tie-breaker. So based on the likely outcome and the competitive odds for this market, I’m shooting for a Garcia/Stefani win.

German Open Doubles – June 23rd Updates

We are now at the semi-final stage of the Berlin Open doubles tournament for 2023. Just two of the top seeds have made it to this point, which happens to be the first and second seeds. So that means that both the third and fourth seeds did not fulfil the expectations prior to the start of the tournament. This is both a good and a bad thing, as it means that some underdogs are managing to take down the top guns and make a run for the title.

However, some might argue that it removes the possibility of seeing the supposed best players compete against one another in the semi-finals. But regardless of individual viewpoints, the semi-finals for this event should still be very exciting. 

Key Results – Thursday, June 22nd

There were three quarter-final matches played at the Berlin Open yesterday, although they were originally supposed to be four. The reason that one was not played is that the top seeds received a walkover into the semifinals. As for the other results that you may have missed, here they are:

  • Garcia/Stefani beat Sizikova/Zimmermann
  • Siniakova/Vondrousova beat Danilina/Xu
  • Krawczyk/Schuurs (2nd seeds) beat Kasatkina/Lisicki

Berlin Open Doubles Predictions – Saturday, June 24th

As mentioned above, there are two semi-final matches due to be played on Saturday, June 24th. And regarding which way these matches might swing, I believe that the following outcomes are worth backing:

  • Krawczyk/Schuurs to beat Siniakova/Vondrousova – 19/20 Odds
  • Garcia/Stefani to beat Melichar-Martinez/Perez – 17/20 Odds

I am predicting that the 2nd seeds, Krawczyk/Schuurs, will secure the win against their opponents since they’ve reached this stage without dropping a set. And given that Garcia/Stefani has produced two straight-set wins, while the top seeds didn’t hit a ball in the previous round, I feel they will be sharp enough to cause the upset.

Berlin Open Doubles – June 22nd Updates

Yesterday at the Berlin Open, we witnessed the remaining first-round matches that ultimately set up the quarter-finals that will be held today. At the same time, a couple of quarter-final matches were also played, which means that the players involved are ahead of the game. This staggered schedule is fairly typical of one-week doubles tournaments, and it guarantees that each day promises plenty of top-level doubles to watch. 

On that note, if you haven’t yet seen the results from the German Open doubles matches that occurred yesterday, I would like to take you through the results right now.

Key Results – Wednesday, June 21st

In total, there were four doubles matches played at the Berlin Open yesterday. As mentioned above, these contained a blend of first-round and quarter-final matches. And for the most intriguing results, I’ve picked out the following as these were somewhat surprising:

  • Kasatkina/Lisicki (wildcards) beat Kato/Sutjiadi
  • Niemeier/Noha Akuge (wildcards) beat Guarachi/Routliffe

First and foremost, the duo of Kasatkina/Lisicki were only entered into the tournament as wildcards. However, they have come out swinging and taken down a potential underdog for the tournament in the form of Kato/Sutjiadi. The final score was 10-8 in the Championship tie-break too, so the match was a true thriller. Such excitement was matched in the win for Niemeier/Noha Akuge too, as they also won in a Championship tie-break – 11-9!

German Open Doubles Predictions – Thursday, June 22nd

Looking at the schedule for the Berlin Open doubles tournament today, there are just two doubles matches set to take place. Both of these games are the remaining quarter-final matches, and I believe that the following predictions could well come through:

  • Danilina/Xu to beat Siniakova/Vondrousova – 11/5 Odds
  • Niemeier/Noha Akuge to beat Melichar-Martinez/Perez – 4/1 Odds

Starting with the first prediction, this is the only seed that looked comfortable in the opening round, and it seemed like they were playing great tennis. As for the second prediction, with Niemeier/Noha Akuge scoring such a close victory in the previous round, their confidence will be sky-high. 

Sure, they are facing the number seeds, but those two only just made it through by winning their opener 10-8 in a Championship tie-break.

German Open Doubles – June 21st Updates

Like other tournaments that are running this week, the Berlin Open doubles event is running alongside the singles tournament. This means that various doubles games are being played each day. And at this point, half of the first-round matches have been completed. Just three of the top four seeds have played, however, meaning that the other seeds will take to the grass courts today.

As for what you might have missed so far and where to place your wagers for the upcoming matches, this is discussed in further detail below.

Key Results – Monday, June 19th

Interestingly, there weren’t any doubles matches played yesterday in the Berlin Open. So all of the first-round games that have been completed so far took place on Monday, June 19th. And when it comes to the key results from these games, the standout result is that the 3rd seeds, Aoyama/Shibahara crashed out in the first round. They fell in straight sets to Sizikova/Zimmermann, yet the top seeds almost joined them!

Melichar-Martinez/Perez squeezed through 10-8 in the third set tie-break against Muhammad/Olmos, so this was quite a scare for them.

Berlin Open Doubles Predictions – Wednesday, June 21st

Punters are spoiled by some great matches taking place today at the Berlin Open. However, when it comes to value bets on these doubles matches, I believe that the following predictions are the best calls:

  • Garcia/Stefani to beat Alexandrova/Yang – 8/15 Odds
  • Kasatkina/Lisicki to beat Kato/Sutijadi – 8/5 Odds

Garcia/Stefani demonstrate a great blend of baseline skills with solid net play – more than enough to beat their opponents. As for the wildcard duo of Kasatkina/Lisicki, while they are underdogs, Kasatkina is a great player and Lisicki will have the home support. 

Berlin Open Doubles – Top Contenders 2023

You probably don’t need much of an overview when establishing who the top contenders are for the German Open doubles event. After all, the favourites are listed from the moment that the top Berlin Open seeds are announced. Yet while this is public knowledge, you might not know exactly why these players are the top seeds. Therefore, I’d like to give you a quick rundown of the four seeds for the Berlin Open doubles event right now. 

Melichar-Martinez/Perez – Seed One

The number one seeds for the German Open doubles tournament is Melichar-Martinez/Perez. These two reached the semi-finals of the French Open just a few weeks ago, and they have become one of the top pairs in the world. Interestingly, they almost took out the top seeds in this tournament last year too, so they definitely know how to play well on grass.

Krawczyk/Schuurs – Seed Two

Krawczyk/Schuurs come in as the number two seeds this year, and they are already off to a flying start. These two dispatched the in-form Chan/Chan in round one to find themselves in the quarter-finals. And in terms of performances in high-profile tournaments this season, they made the quarters of the Australian Open, as well as the 3rd round of Roland Garros.

Aoyama/Shibahara – Seed Three

I’ve listed this duo to simply make you aware of the seedings for the German Open doubles event. However, they’ve already lost in the opening round to the duo of Sizikova/Zimmermann. They actually went down in straight sets, which means that this particular section is now open for one of the underdogs to make a run to the semi-finals. 

Danilina/Xu – Seed Four

Finishing up now by talking about the 4th seeds, as you can see, this duo is Danilina/Xu. There isn’t much to go on with this pairing in terms of results in bigger tournaments, but they are both handy doubles players. As for their opening game, they face a tough test against Siegemund/Zvonareva. Yet if they do get beyond this pair, they have a good draw to the semi-finals. 

German Open Doubles – FAQs

What is the size of the draw for the Berlin Open doubles event?

Because this is a WTA 500 event, the size of the draw is smaller than it is for larger competitions. Specifically, this is a 16-segment draw, meaning that there are 32 players in total involved in the event. As a result, a partnership must win four rounds in a row to win the trophy.

Can I make individual match wagers as well as outright bets?

Of course. Although outright bets are great to maintain interest throughout any tennis tournament, they aren’t all that stimulating at times. So if you wish to get more involved in that regard, you will definitely want to wager on individual games as the event progresses.

What are my options for live-streaming the German Open doubles competition?

There are quite a few options for watching the Berlin Open doubles tournament. This includes options via online streaming networks and even through your online betting accounts. Should you want a full overview of this, however, we have a breakdown of the Berlin Open TV live streaming services for you to read. 

What is the format of the doubles matches in this event?

There is a very simple format for the matches in this event. All of the doubles games are played as the best of three tie-break sets, with a championship tie-break ruling in place if any match goes to one set all. To clarify, this is a tie-break that is played to 10 points instead of 7.

How often will you be issuing Berlin Open doubles predictions?

I will be updating this page with predictions after each passing round, so you will have regular tips to read through. At the same time, I’ll be indicating why these tips have been given, just so you can also see the logic behind all predictions supplied.
