Don’t miss our top tennis play for this Friday’s action in Madrid with Svetlana Kuznetsova and Kristina Mladenovic fighting for a place in the decisive match. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixture below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Kuznetsova vs. Mladenovic
After reaching the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix Final two weeks ago in Stuttgart, Kristina Mladenovic is just one win away from securing a place in another decisive match. Known as one of the most talented young players on the WTA Tour, Mladenovic is finally living up to expectations with a phenomenal 3 – 0 record in 2017 against top 10 players.
The 2015 Mutua Madrid Open runner-up – Svetlana Kuznetsova – continues her successful run on this event. Looking now at Svetlana’s campaign in Madrid, the world no.9 reaches this stage of the competition after a 6 – 4 6 – 0 win over Eugenie Bouchard. Kuznetsova was extremely pleased with her performance in the previous round, especially the way she controlled the match against such a dangerous opponent as Bouchard.
Taking a look now at the odds for this contest, the bookmakers expect a very close affair with Kuznetsova available at 83/100 at BetVictor while Pinnacle offers 21/20 for Mladenovic’s victory. Even though we agree with Svetlana’s favouritism, it’s hard to go against Mladenovic at the moment. Therefore, our recommendation is to go with the Over 21.5 at 83/100 at Pinnacle since we can’t see any of the two winning in two easy sets.
