To set the right bet for Sorana Cirstea vs Madison Keys, read our free predictions and tips for this match
Sorana Cirstea to Win at Least One Set
Although Madison Keys is favoured by the bookies’ significantly, we don’t believe that this match will be as one-sided as the odds suggest. For one, the American hasn’t enjoyed her best form in recent weeks. She has been inconsistent at best, with three wins and three losses in her last six singles matches. To be fair, Sorana Cirstea has had her fair share of struggles too. However, the only other time these players met, the Romanian emerged victorious in three sets. For this reason, we believe there’s more value in backing Sorana Cirstea to take a set.
Over 20.5 Total Games
We’ve pointed out that these players squared off against each other once, and that match ended in three sets. It’s also worth noting that that match went over 25 games. Moreover, neither of these players has particularly impressed in recent months, so we shouldn’t expect a very one-sided contest. That said, we are fairly confident that this match will go over 20.5 games.
Sorana Cirstea vs Madison Keys Preview
With our predictions out of the way, how have these players fared in recent weeks?
Sorana Cirstea looked really good in her first round clash with Kimberly Birrell. She knocked out the Australian in straight sets, breaking her serve five times. Compared to her previous opponent however, Madison Keys will be a relatively tougher nut to crack. It’ll be interesting to see how Cirstea will match-up against the American.
Unlike Cirstea, Madison Keys will be playing her first match of this tournament today, as she received a first round bye. The 28 year old hasn’t fared too well recently; as she won just three of her last six singles matches. Keys will be eyeing a place in the third round, and she’ll fancy her chances against Sorana Cirstea.
