The action continues in Strasbourg with Shuai Peng and Samantha Stosur fighting for a place at the Internationaux de Strasbourg Final. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixture below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Peng vs. Stosur
After a disappointing defeat against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the first round of the Italian Open in Rome, Samantha Stosur decided to accept a late wildcard into the main draw in Strasbourg. Playing on this event brings great memories to Stosur with the 2015 champion just one win away from returning to the decisive match in Strasbourg. Taking a look now at Samantha’s campaign on this year’s edition, the world no.24 reaches this stage of the competition after a 7 – 6 6 – 4 victory over Carla Suarez Navarro.
The former world no.14 – Shuai Peng – continues her outstanding comeback after one year away from competition due to a back injury. Besides her success in singles, Peng is also one of the best doubles players in the world. After a slow start in Strasbourg against Alize Cornet, Peng didn’t experience any problems in the following two rounds against Amandine Hesse and Shelby Rogers.
These two players know each other very well with their first encounter taking place in 2006. In addition to Stosur’s 7 – 1 lead on the h2h, Peng never won a single set in their previous four meetings on clay.
As the h2h suggests, Stosur is a terrible match-up for Peng. Adding to this, the Australian presents a phenomenal 9 – 1 career record in Strasbourg. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Stosur’s tennis betting odds at 57/100 with Pinnacle while Peng is available at 81/50 with Bet365.
