Giorgi vs. Kerber
Camila Giorgi continues her impressive run at the Sydney International. The Italian became the fourth qualifier in the past five years to reach the semi-finals in Sydney. Giorgi is yet to drop a set at the NSW Tennis Centre with an impressive 6 – 1 6 – 2 win over Agnieszka Radwanska in the quarter-finals. Known for her aggressive style of game and powerful flat groundstrokes, the 26-year-old ended the match against the Polish with an incredible average of 2.20 winners per game.
Former world No.1 Angelique Kerber remains unbeaten in 2018. Playing in Australia is always special for Kerber due to her victory at the Australian Open in 2016. Adding to this, Angelique holds a terrific 72.73% winning record throughout her career on this event. Taking a look now at Kerber’s campaign in Sydney, the 29-year-old advanced to the semi-finals for the fourth time in her career after a 6 – 3 6 – 1 victory against Dominika Cibulkova.
This will be the 3rd career meeting between these two players with Giorgi still looking for her first win against this opponent.
As the h2h suggests, Kerber is a terrible match-up for the Italian. Despite Camila’s firepower and undeniable quality, it won’t be easy for the world no.100 to overcome such a great defender as the German. The bookmakers think the same with Angelique as the favourite at 1/2 at 5Dimes while Pinnacle offers 47/25 for Giorgi to win. For those who want to take a higher risk, our suggestion is for you to place a bet on Kerber’s -3.5 Game Handicap at 22/25 at BetOnline.
