Don’t miss our top tennis play for this Saturday’s action in Strasbourg with two Australian players – Samantha Stosur and Daria Gavrilova – fighting for the Internationaux de Strasbourg title. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixture below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Stosur vs. Gavrilova
As we predicted in our WTA Strasbourg semi-finals analysis, Samantha Stosur proved too strong for Shuai Peng. With this victory, Stosur improved her career record on this event to 10 – 1. Besides winning 47.89% of the points on Peng’s serve, Stosur ended the match with impressive numbers – 27 winners and only 10 unforced errors. The Australian is looking for her first title on the WTA Tour since July 2015 after losing her previous final in Prague last season.
At the age of 23, Daria Gavrilova is going through the best moment in her career. Besides securing her career-high ranking next week, Gavrilova is just one win away from claiming her first title. Despite Caroline Garcia’s undeniable quality, the French couldn’t find the answer to Gavrilova’s solid baseline game in the previous round with the former junior world no.1 not facing a single break point throughout the entire match.
This will be the 2nd career meeting between these two players with Gavrilova emerging victorious from their previous encounter two years ago in Toronto.
Despite Stosur’s larger experience in finals, Gavrilova should be too solid for her fellow countrywoman. With this in mind, the value is definitely on Daria’s tennis betting odds with the 23-years-old available at 53/50 with Pinnacle. On the other hand, Bet365 offers 4/5 for Stosur to leave Strasbourg with the title.
