Wozniacki vs. Stephens
Regardless of this Saturday’s outcome, Sloane Stephens already secured her return to the top 200. Once considered a future major champion by many in the game, the 24-year-old American is trying to live up to expectations. Taking a look now at Sloane’s campaign in Toronto, the former world no.11 reaches this stage of the competition after an epic 6 – 2 1 – 6 7 – 5 win over Lucie Safarova.
As we mentioned in previous analysis, Caroline Wozniacki continues her quest for first title of the season. Known as one of the best defenders in the game, Wozniacki’s game style proved too much for Karolina Pliskova in the previous round. Nevertheless, it won’t be easy for the former world no.1 to be in her best physical condition for this match after almost three hours on court yesterday against the Czech.
The bookmakers expect a straightforward win from Wozniacki with the 27-year-old Dane available at 2/5 at Coral while William Hill offers 5/2 for Stephens’ victory. Even though we agree with Caroline’s favouritism, it’s impossible to find any value on her current tennis odds. Therefore, our advice is for you to place a bet on the American’s +1.5 Set Handicap at 49/50 at Pinnacle as the best betting approach for this match.
