The Canadian Open, also known as the Rogers Cup kick-starts this week; this will be the sixth WTA 1000 event of the year. Interestingly, the Canadian Open alternates between two cities, Toronto and Montreal. This year, the women’s event will be held in Montreal. In this article, we’ll provide our WTA Canadian Open predictions, which will be updated each day.
Montreal Open Predictions – Outright Winner
To be fair, Iga Swiatek doesn’t particularly have a great track record in this competition; she participated in two previous editions of this tournament, and crashed out in the round of 16 on both occasions. However, it’s important to point out that the current World number 1 is coming into this tournament on the back of five consecutive straight sets victories. She won 19 of her last 20 matches (excluding walkovers), winning two titles in that stretch. Furthermore, Swiatek has reached more finals, and won more titles than any other player on the WTA Tour this year. For this reason, we are backing the Polish ace to win her first Rogers Cup title this weekend.
WTA Canadian Open Betting Tips – Day 6
These are our WTA National Bank Open predictions for today:
Iga Swiatek vs Jessica Pegula
It’s important to point out that Iga Swiatek has dominated Jessica Pegula in recent years; as she has five wins in the last six encounters between these players. Moreover, the current World number 1 has been unstoppable recently, winning eight matches in a row, and 22 of her last 23 matches (excluding walkovers). However, Swiatek won her last two matches in maximum sets, and considering how well Jessica Pegula has played in this tournament, we believe she’ll be able to take one set off the Polish player today. On that note, we are backing Swiatek to win in three sets.
Elena Rybakina vs Liudmila Samsonova
Granted, Elena Rybakina has been one of the most consistent players on the WTA Tour this season; she’s coming off back-to-back victories over Sloane Stephens and Daria Kasatkina, and has seven wins in her last eight matches. However, the Kazakhstani has not fared well against today’s opponent in the past; as she’s currently 0 for 2 against Liudmila Samsonova. In fact, these players met at this competition two years ago, and Samsonova came out on top in straight sets. For this reason, we believe the Russian player will advance to the final when it’s all said and done.
