Giorgi vs Bencic – Match Predictions
On paper, this may seem like a simple win for Belinda Bencic. Yet when you look at recent form and head-to-head statistics, I don’t believe this will be the case. Sure, I do think that Bencic will secure the win, but Giorgi has been playing good tennis recently. So she will certainly give Bencic a few things to think about when she takes her on in this match. As for the rankings of these two players, Bencic is ranked 10, and Giorgi is ranked 70.
Because of this, Giorgi is not seeded at the 2023 Australian Open. In contrast, Bencic is seeded 12th, and she is actually one of the main favorites to win the tournament. However, she looked vulnerable in her previous round, whereas Giorgi looked prolific in the first two matches. So taking this into account, let me justify the tennis predictions today for this match.
Over 20.5 Games
First and foremost, this market looks appealing given that Giorgi is playing great tennis. Keep in mind that if Bencic was to win yet at least one set finished 6-4 and the other finished 7-5 or 7-6, this market would be a winner. And if Giorgi was to upset the odds and take a set, it’s even more likely that this market would pull through.
Giorgi +4.5 Game Handicap
If Giorgi were to take a set, this market looks to be highly promising. Of course, she’s up against it given the form that Bencic is in. But she has the kind of game that could trouble Bencic, and if enough of her big shots land, she could well take a set. And if that happens, the most valuable market to shoot for is +4.5 in games.
Giorgi vs Bencic Preview
If you want a bit more insight into these two players, check out the two previews below.
Camila Giorgi Preview
Camila Giorgi can be a very up-and-down player. She can blow top players off the court and then lose to lower-ranked players at random. So you never really know what you’re getting when Giorgi takes to the court. Yet she’s looked good in her first two rounds at the Australian Open, and she wrapped up the 2022 season with some great wins too.
Belinda Bencic Preview
As the number 12 seed, Belinda Bencic is one of the favorites. She is actually ranked number 10 following her success in Adelaide prior to the Australian Open. Not only that, but she beat two top 10 players on her journey to the title too. Therefore, her form and confidence for the Australian Open 2023 speak for themselves.
Giorgi vs Bencic Head to Head
These two have played each other five times in the past. Bencic has a 3-2 lead, yet one of the wins for Giorgi came from a withdrawal in the middle of a match from Bencic. So really, Bencic has a clear margin regarding head-to-head matches.
