Katie Boulter vs Rebecca Marino – Match Predictions
Katie Boulter to Win
Boulter has been in a rich vein of form, adding the Nottingham Open title recently and impressed on her hard court forays. The bookmakers favour her to triumph and we are backing the favourite to progress. While the British number 1 registered straight-set victories, Marino was taking a rest after plying her trade at the W10 Gnabry. She will have to make a swift transition to the higher level and it looks unlikely she will be able to given Boulter’s form.
Under 21.5 Games
Marino’s semi-final defeat to Katherine Sebov saw a three-set affair lasting 28 games. Her match prior saw 18 games played. Boulter’s straight-set wins in the Montreal Open qualifiers saw 18 games on both occasions. As the duo meet, we expect a swift resolution to the encounter, one in which we favour the British ace. With bookmakers’ giving exceptional odds at Under 21.5 Games, we are going with the selection.
Katie Boulter vs Rebecca Marino Preview
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Canadian Open.
After reaching the third round at the Wimbledon Championships, Boulter has established herself as the British number 1. She belatedly broke into the WTA 100 and has impressed in her performances across the pond. Making the transition from grass to hard courts, she impressed with her 2-0 victory over Elizabeth Mandlik in WTA Washington’s first round before being knocked out by Leylah Fernandez. In Montreal, she was forced to come through the qualifiers and impressed with straight-set victories in each of her outings.
The Canadian hopefuls ended the grasscourt swing with four successive defeats. Wih her horror showings in the UK in the rearview mirror, she now turns her attention to home soil events. At the W10 Granby, she reached the semi-finals but could not get past Katherine Sebov. In the National Bank Open, she has been given a wild card entry and has a lot on her shoulders to justify the gestures shown by her compatriots.
