Dayana Yastremska to Win At Least a Set

Although Jelena Ostapenko is the bookies’ favourite here, we are not too convinced by her recent results. It’s worth mentioning that the Latvian player lost her last two singles matches in straight sets. To be fair, Yastremska has not fared much better either, but she did beat Ostapenko at Birmingham last year. Considering the odds offered here, we believe there’s a lot of value in backing Yastremska to take at least one set.

Dayana Yastremska +4.5 Games

Bearing Jelena Ostapenko’s recent struggles in mind, we think this match will be closer than the odds suggest. Aljona Ostapenko lost in three sets to Yastremska in their last meeting, despite being the clear favourite. Taking everything into account, we are fairly confident that Yastremska will cover +4.5 games.
