Paula Badosa: Looking tough on grass
Badosa had a gritty game against the highly experienced and two-times Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova. It was one of the best games in the women’s leg as both players had a strong service game in all regards. Badosa did a terrific job with the angles and forced Kvitova to hit long balls, in a game where both the players weren’t committing many errors. Paula did a great job of earning breakpoints and picked up a 38-30 receiving points advantage.
Like last year, Paula has now reached the QuarterFinals of Wimbledon and her alertness has been remarkable thus far. Badosa is yet to lose a set in this tournament and she was looking in incredible athletic shape during the last game. Badosa has taken a liking to the pace on the grass and she has also now faced versatile opponents along the way so she can be brewing something special here. Remember Paula has never reached the Semi-Finals stage of a Grand Slam.Bet on Wimbledon with 1xBet
Simona Halep: She has been flawless
Simona comes into the game after nabbing an easy win against Magadelna French. After a wobbly first set, she found her groove in the second one and completely ran over the competition. She had an admirable first serve win percentage of 71 and she also did a great job of countering the serve, getting 6/10 breakpoints and extracting a 30-15 receiving points advantage.
Simona has won six straight sets and is yet to lose in the competition. She has also gone to play against players of low rank so far so the real test is here for the Romanian. She has won Wimbledon back in 2019 and has been a stellar player on the grass. Her win percentage in Wimbledon is the best one for her compared to any other surface. This is a woman who has won two Grand Slams so she is a tough draw.
Who will win the match between Simona Halep and Paula Badosa?
Paula has been in great touch so far but this is where she usually peaks in the Grand Stage. Simona is too experienced and too well-versed in these conditions but even she isn’t as reflexive as she was a couple of years ago. But there is no doubt that Halep looks like one o the favorites and this can be one of the most nail-biting match-ups. Paula looks in great touch but there is still skepticism regarding her chances. These two have met once, on clay, where Halep won comfortably during Madrid Open.
According to 1xBet, Simona Halep is the clear-cut favorite with the odds of 1.56. Her experience can certainly carry her forward but Badosa’s odds of 2.675 are not bad either.
These two are meeting first time on the grass and although Badosa lost big last time, she looks much better on the grass. I do feel this can be a stretched-out game that can go to the third set. I see the Total going “Over” 21.5 which has the odds of 1.975.
