The first and fifth rackets of the World will meet in the first semifinal meeting: Ashley Barty and Elina Svitolina
Both tennis players approached the match in a relatively combat-ready form. At the same time, they do not differ in stability. They finished most of their matches in 3 sets. At the same time, the rivals were able to overcome the resistance of the TOP-10 tennis players.
In the opening match, Barty met Kutsova. She won this match with great difficulty in three sets (6 - 3, 4 - 6 and 7 - 5). In the second match, Ostapenko was unable to provide decent resistance. There were three sets again in the match against Azarenka. Pay attention to the score: 6 - 1, 1 6 and 6 - 2). An even more intense game came out against Arina Sobolenko. The same three sets: 2 - 1 (6 - 4, 6 - 7 and 6 - 3). Here I had to play 1 time-break.
Svitolina moved to the semifinals as tensely as her rival. The first was a 3-set duel against Shelby Rogers (3-6, 7-5 and 6-3). In the second, Svitolina dealt with Russian Alexandrova in 2 sets (7 - 6 and 6 - 4). In the third meeting, Elina met with the uncomfortable Petra Kvitova. There were three standard sets: 2 - 6, 7 - 5 and 7 - 5. In the quarterfinals, Svitolina did not notice Sevastova: 0 - 2 (3 - 6 and 2 - 6).
We will most likely see a 3-set encounter. Accordingly, you can try to play TB21.5 for 2.04. Instability of both tennis players should bring a riding encounter. Bookmaker quotes in favor of Barty. But I still think that Svitolina has a chance of winning. Moreover, she won 5 out of 6 games in personal meetings. You can take a chance and bet on a clear victory for Svitolina for 2.87.
Maria Sakkari and Bianca Andreescu will meet in the second semifinal match
Everything is very interesting here. Sakkari gave her rivals only 6 games in the first two meetings. In fact, these were easy walks. But in the third meeting she had to play a 3-set match against a strong Pegula: 6 - 4, 2 - 6 and 7 - 6. In the quarterfinals, she met with Naomi Osaaka. Contrary to the opinion of the privateers and the quotes of the Bookmakers, Sakkari just walked the skating rink on the second racket of the World. She won with a crushing score of 2 - 0 (6 - 0 and 6 - 4).
Bianca shows an unstable game. In the first match, she beat Martintseva in 2 sets (7 - 6 and 6 - 2). I had to play three sets with Anisimova: 7 - 6, 6 - 7 and 6 - 4. The game against Mugurusa, who had gained form, can be called successful. But even here there were 3 sets: 3 - 6, 6 - 3 and 6 - 2. In the quarterfinals, she met with Sorribes-Tormo. Here, in general, Bianca lost 8 of her serves! Due to Sarah's instability, she was able to win: 6 - 4, 3 - 6 and 6 - 3. And again three sets.
I think that here you can give preference to Maria Sakkari. She showed high-quality and stable tennis, beating Pegula and Osaka during the tournament. So, the first bet is Victory of Sakkari. The second rate is TB19.5. When choosing a prediction for the Sakkari - Andreescu match, we take into account Bianchi's instability. But at the same time, do not forget about her playing at the reception.
I think that Svitolina and Sakkari will meet in the final.
