We’ve reached the decisive day with the WTA Mutua Madrid Open Final taking place this Saturday. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixture below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Mladenovic vs. Halep
The defending champion – Simona Halep – continues her brilliant run in Madrid. Known as one of the best clay-court players on the WTA Tour, Halep holds an outstanding 70.65% winning record on red dirt. Looking now at Simona’s campaign in Madrid, the Romanian reaches this stage of the competition after an impressive straight sets victory over Anastasija Sevastova.
Kristina Mladenovic continues to pursue her first career title on red dirt. After losing the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix final two weeks ago in Stuttgart, the French is once again just one win away from lifting the trophy. Regardless of this Saturday’s result in Madrid, Mladenovic already secured her career high ranking next week and it shouldn’t take long before we see Kristina entering the top 10.
This is always a very interesting match-up with Mladenovic’s firepower opposing to Halep’s counter punching skills. Looking now at the odds for this match, the bookmakers give the edge to Halep with the Romanian available at 29/50 with Pinnacle. On the other hand, Bet365 offers 3/2 for Mladenovic’s victory. Even though Kristina won three of their previous four meetings, Simona should be too strong for the French on this surface.
