Aranga has hit above her weight, defeating Sloane Stephens and Taylor Townsend. On the other hand, Sakkari arrives in this quarter-final bout with victories over Storm Hunter and Camila Giorgi. For the latest insights and betting tips on the Guadalajara Open 2023, check out our predictions for the WTA Guadalajara Open.
Emiliana Arango to win @ 21/5 (5.20)
If we are to go by rankings, Sakkari will dominate Arango by quite a margin. However, the Greek starlet has been on an underwhelming run of late and will give opportunities to Arango in this duel. This was the perception before her meetings with Alexandra Potapova, Sloane Stephens and Taylor Townsend. Everyone was made to regret their decisions. The Colombian ace is playing in the sweet spot and we are backing her to upset the erratic Sakkari.
Over 19.5 Games @ 4/5 (1.80)
Sakkari defeated Giorgi in straight sets with only 16 games being played. She will be facing a tougher rival in Arango, who is ranked 180 in the world but has punched above her weight in Guadalajara. With the exception of her 15-game win over Stephens, Arango has been involved in long duels. Her meeting with Townsend lasted 29 games and we expect a similar encounter with Sakkari. There is value in the Over 19.5 games selection and we are picking it to come to fruition.

Quarterfinal fireworks: Arango takes on Sakkari in Guadalajara thriller
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far this season for the latest tennis betting tips and predictions here.
Emiliana Arango preview
With a 45-23 win/loss record in 2023, Emiliana Arango will be pleased with her efforts. Like Sakkari, she has struggled to give her best at the most momentous occasions but is coming into her own as the season grinds to a conclusion. Arango impressed in Mosquera, where she finished runner-up and impressed with semi-final placements in Naples and Cali. Alongside Vero Beach, San Luis Potosi and Ilkley, this is her fourth quarter-final appearance on the tour in 2023.
Maria Sakkari preview
So far, it has been a year to forget for Maria Sakkari. The Greek ace has bowed out of the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open in the first round. Dubai, Miami, Nottingham, and Montreal were not fruitful hunting grounds as she was ousted in the second round. However, with a final appearance in Washington and top-four placements in Australia 1, Linz, Doha, Indian Wells, Madrid and Berlin, she will back herself to finish the campaign on a high.
