Our favourite Caroline Garcia vs Maria Sakkari predictions
Garcia lost her spot in the top 10 players in the WTA list, and this tournament is her chance to bet back there.
Maria Sakkari to win @ 13/20 (1.65)
Sakkari lost five semifinals this season, which and the only final appearance that put a lot of pressure on her. The world No. 9 has a losing record against Garcia but is still the favourite to win. Despite going this deep in this tournament, neither Garcia or Sakkari is in good form, but it seems like Sakkari’s crisis is over and she will reach another final.
Over 22.5 games @ 17/20 (1.85)
Both players won their last couple of matches in straight sets. Going head to head will make things more challenging for both of them. Given their form in recent months, none of them will be able to keep a high level of play consistently in this match, so this one will probably go in the third set.
