The action continues in Rome with the Internazionali BNL D’Italia semi-finals taking place this Saturday. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixture below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Muguruza vs. Svitolina
The 2016 French Open champion – Garbine Muguruza – continues her successful run in Rome. After losing against Madison Keys at the Internazionali BNL D’Italia semi-finals last season, Muguruza is trying to go a step further this season. Looking now at the Spaniard’s campaign on this event, Garbine reaches this stage of the competition after her first career win over the 36-years-old American, Venus Williams.
Regardless of this Saturday’s result, Elina Svitolina already secured her return to the top 10 next week. Even though clay is far from Svitolina’s favourite surface, the Ukrainian presents an outstanding 81.82% winning record on red dirt in 2017. After an incredible comeback against Mona Barthel in the 3rd round, Elina surprised the 2nd seed – Karolina Pliskova – in the quarter-finals.
Taking a look now at the odds for this contest, there isn’t much separating these two players. Svitolina is available at 91/100 at William Hill while Pinnacle offers 1/1 for Muguruza’s victory. Even though we consider Garbine the better player among the two on clay, Svitolina is a terrible match-up for the Spaniard. Therefore, we’ll take the Over 21.5 at 22/25 at Pinnacle as the best betting approach for this match, a line that was covered in all their last three meetings.
