Andreescu vs Halep: prediction for the WTA Bad Homburg match
One week ago, Bianca Andreescu had to leave the Berlin tournament in the second round after a defeat to Karolina Pliskova on a decisive tiebreak (4:6, 6:2, 6:7). Canadian player managed to improve her serving performance at Bad Homburg.
In three matches of the current tournament a former World No. 4 player didn't lose a single set. She managed to beat Trevisan, Swan and Kasatkina. A brilliant victory over Daria (6:4, 6:1) fully showcased Bianca's potential. She played aggressively and this strategy turned out to be successful.
Simona Halep has reached the semifinals in two consecutive tournaments. Last week, she was denied the final spot at Birmingham by Haddad Maia (3:6, 6:2, 4:6).
Romanian player got off to a rough start at Bad Homburg tournament - Siniakova managed to put up a good fight (4:6, 6:3, 6:4). After that, Halep easily beat Zidansek (6:0, 6:3) and Anisimova (6:2, 6:1).
This bet won in 3 of 5 latest matches of Anisimova
In each of six latest matches of Halep no more than nine games were played in the second set
In our opinion, Andreescu should not be underestimated in this matchup. Canadian player put up a great performance in first three rounds. Bianca showcased her potential and baseline skills. She is also a consistent server. We are not expecting a blowout here.
Our prediction - Handicap (+4) games for Andreescu
Opponents had one head-to-head match before. It happened in 2019 WTA Finals. Back then, Halep barely scrambled to a three-set victory. We are anticipating another contested match.
Our second bet is on total over 21 games
