WTA Strasbourg International Best Bets – May 25th

The 2019 Strasbourg International has its two finalist after a bust of semifinal day. #6 Dayana Yastremska opened the day with a quick 6-4 6-4 win over #2 Aryna Sabalenka. Yastremska lost her first service game of the match, but stayed strong over the rest of the match to knock off the Belarusian. Yastremska won 54% of the total points and 64% of her service points. The Ukrainian will face off against #4 Caroline Garcia after the Frenchwoman needed just over an hour to knock out Chloe Paquet. Garcia fired 11 aces and did not face a break point in her straight forward victory.

Here is my pick for the final of the 2019 Strasbourg International.

Dayana Yastremska (-125) vs Caroline Garcia (+100)

Dayana Yastremska will be playing for her 2nd title of the 2019 season after easily making her way through the Strasbourg draw. Yastremska has yet to drop a set this week and has spent less than five total hours on the court. The Ukrainian has lost just five service games all tournament while breaking her opponents a total of 19 times in four matches. Saturday will be Yastremska’s third career WTA final, third since October 2018, and she currently sits at 2-0 in her previous finals. In the lower circuits, Yastremska played in four clay court finals and she went 3-1 in those finals. The Ukrainian currently sits at 17-9 overall and 4-3 on the clay in 2019.

Caroline Garcia is through to her first final of the 2019 season after a breeze of a semifinal match. Garcia has spent just under seven hours on the court this week, but it is a week the Frenchwoman desperately needed heading into Roland Garros. Saturday will be Garcia’s 9th WTA final and she currently has a record of 6-2 in her previous eight finals. Caroline Garcia stands at 14-11 overall in 2019 and this week has improved her clay court record to 7-4.

Dayana Yastremska wins her second title of 2019 with a straight set win over Caroline Garcia.

This will be the first meeting between the two.

WTA Strasbourg International Best Bets – May 24th

The 2019 Strasbourg International is down to its final four after an exciting quarterfinal round Thursday. World #223, Chloe Paquet, who went off at +162, advances to her first WTA semifinal after a 6-3 7-6(2) win over Daria Gavrilova. The 24-year-old is on a magical run this week and she is just two wins away from lifting her first title at any professional level. #6 Dayana Yastremska obliterated Fiona Ferro, 6-1 6-3, to advance to her first clay semifinal this season. #4 Caroline Garcia fought off a tough 16-year-old Thursday beating Marta Kostyuk in the three sets. The final semifinalist is #2 Aryna Sabalenka who knocked out the 2014 Strasbourg champ, Monica Puig, in three sets. Sabalenka broke Puig seven times in this one, three times in the final set, to advance to her first clay court semifinal this season.

The semifinal matchups set to take place Friday are #2 Aryna Sabalenka vs #6 Dayana Yastremska and #4 Caroline Garcia vs Chloe Paquet

Here are my picks for the 2019 Strasbourg International semifinals.

Carolina Garcia (-625) vs Chloe Paquet (+400)

Caroline Garcia is through to her first semifinal of 2019 after a nice three set comeback over Marta Kostyuk on Thursday. Garcia has been on the court for over five and a half hours so far, in just three matches, but will still be happy to see some results finally go her way. The Frenchwoman had a Round of 16 appearance, in Madrid, and two first round loses, in Stuttgart and Rome, on the clay prior to this week. Garcia has two career WTA clay court championships including the 2016 version of this tournament.

Chloe Paquet did not have a main draw win on the WTA tour this season prior to entering Strasbourg, but the 23-year-old Frenchwoman finds herself into her first WTA semifinal. Paquet has yet to lose a set this week and has spent a little less than four and a half hours on the court. Paquet has not won a title on any level in her career.

Caroline Garcia gets the win and advances to the final.

Caroline Garcia leads the H2H 2-0 overall and 1-0 on clay.

Dayana Yastremska (-125) vs Aryna Sabalenka (+100)

Dayana Yastremska entered Strasbourg without a win on clay this season, but now finds herself in her first semifinal since her title winning campaign at Hua Hin in early February. Yastremska lost six of seven, so this run with do the young Ukrainian wonders heading into Roland Garros. Yastremska has never won a WTA clay court title, but she did win two ITF titles on the surface.

Aryna Sabalenka is through to her first clay court semifinal, since Lugano 2018, with a nice three set win over Monica Puig. The three set result does not do Sabalenka justice as she played her best clay court match this season in knocking out Puig. This will be Sabalenka’s first semifinal since St. Petersburg in early February. The Belarusian has never won a clay court title at any level.

Aryna Sabalenka gets the win and advances to the final.

Dayana Yastremska leads the H2H 1-0, but this will be the first meeting on clay.

WTA Strasbourg International Best Bets – May 23rd

The 2019 Strasbourg International had a busy Wednesday with 10 matches on the schedule thanks to all of Tuesday’s matches being postponed due to rain. Two women, Caroline Garcia and Daria Gavrilova, were forced to play two times on Wednesday and both came out victorious to reach the quarters. Chloe Paquet, Marta Kostyuk, Aryna Sabalenka, Monica Puig, Dayana Yastremska and Fiona Ferro also all came away with wins on Wednesday.

Four of the eight quarterfinalists are ranked seeds with the following matches taking place on Thursday: #2 Aryna Sabalenka vs Monica Puig, #4 Carolina Garcia vs Marta Kostyuk, #6 Dayana Yastremska vs Fiona Ferro and Daria Gavrilova vs Chloe Paquet.

Here are my picks for the quarterfinal round action in Strasbourg.

Monica Puig (-125) vs Aryna Sabalenka (+100)

Monica Puig continues her up and down 2019 as she enters the quarterfinals after a dominant 6-3 6-2 win over Astra Sharma. Puig made the semifinals of Charleston to open her clay court season then after a month off Puig failed to qualify for Madrid and Rome. Now into her second quarterfinal of 2019, the 2014 Strasbourg champion has a tough task ahead of her. The Puerto Rican is 10-3 on the dirt in 2019.

Aryna Sabalenka is through to her third quarterfinal of the season, first on clay, after a thorough 6-4 6-3 win, over Laura Siegemund, on Wednesday. Sabalenka has now notched back-to-back wins for the first time this season on clay and first time overall since Indian Wells mid-March. The Belarusian would advance to her third semifinal of 2019 with a win Thursday. Sabalenka is 3-3 on the dirt on 2019.

I like Monica Puig to advance to the semifinals.

Monica Puig leads the H2H 1-0 with that one match taking place on the clay, in Charleston, earlier in 2019.

Dayana Yastremska (-333) vs Fiona Ferro (+250)

Dayana Yastremska notched back to back wins, for the first time since her title run in Hua Hin, with her dominant 6-0 6-2 win over Sam Stosur on Wednesday. Yastremska has really struggled on clay this season as she entered Strasbourg 0-3 with three first round exits in Rome, Madrid and Istanbul. The Ukrainian is 2-3 on clay in 2019.

Fiona Ferro knocked out the #3 seed, Qiang Wang, in a nice three set comeback on Wednesday. With the win, Ferro advances to her second quarterfinal this clay court season as she had a run to the semifinals in Lugano a few weeks back. Ferro is 8-3 on clay in 2019.

Dayana Yastremska gets the win and advances to the semifinals.

This will be the first meeting between the two.

WTA Strasbourg International Best Bets – May 22nd

The 2019 Strasbourg International may not have had any action Tuesday, but there were plenty of waves made. The news to start the day was that #1 seed Ash Barty was withdrawing from the tournament with a right arm injury. The field for the Strasbourg International was not all that strong, but Barty being there, along with #10 Aryna Sabalenka, was a huge get for the tournament. The other waves created was from all of the rain! Every single main draw match was rained out and all had to be rescheduled until Wednesday.

10 matches are on the schedule in what will be a busy Wednesday in France.

Here are my picks for the action Wednesday in Strasbourg.

Dayana Yastremska (-278) vs Sam Stosur (+200)

Dayana Yastremska notched his first win on the 2019 clay season Monday with a straightforward two set win over Pauline Parmentier. The Ukrainian teenager entered Strasbourg on a four match losing streak, had lost seven of eight, before her win Monday. Yastremska had a great start to the season, winning her second career WTA title, at Hua Hin, but the teenager has not been able to find form on the European dirt. Yastremska had gone 27-14 on clay in her career prior to the season, but currently sits at 1-3 on the surface in 2019.

Sam Stosur recorded her first main draw win since late March with an easy 6-3 6-1 win, over Jessica Pegula, on Monday. Stosur is a two time champion of this tournament and the Aussie has always seemed to perform well here over the year. Stosur is certainly in the twilight of her singles career, but the Aussie is still a huge threat on the double court. Stosur is 2-3 on clay in 2019.

Dayana Yastremska gets the win and advances to the quarters.

Dayana Yastremska leads the H2H 1-0, but this will be the first meeting on dirt.

Marta Kostyuk (-175) vs Saisai Zheng (+125)

16-year-old Marta Kostyuk recorded her first main draw win of 2019 with a dominant 6-4 6-1 win over Marie Benoit on Monday. Kostyuk is rapidly rising, as she sits ranked #264 at just 16 years old, and she appears to be a huge threat on all surfaces in the years to come. The Ukrainian won the 2017 Juniors Aussie Open and currently sits at 7-2 on clay in 2019.

After the early hardcourt season ended, Saisai Zheng took a step down to start the clay season with a Challenger title in An-Ning. It looked like that decision might have paid off as she was able to win two matches in Madrid, and was just one set away from knocking out Sloane Stephens, but Zheng fell in the first round of Rome. Zheng has been a fine clay court player over the years and she currently sits at 8-2 on the surface in 2019.

I like Saisai Zheng to pull off the slight upset.

This will be the first meeting between the two.

WTA Strasbourg International Best Bets – May 21st

The 2019 Strasbourg Invitational really got underway Monday with nine main draw matches getting completed before the rain started coming down. There were three huge upsets on Monday as Chloe Paquet (+400), Xin-Yun Han (+350) and Amandine Hesse (+300) knocked out #5 Sofia Kenin, Anna Schmiedlova and Yafan Wang, respectively, to shake up the tournament early. Monica Puig, Sam Stosur, Laura Siegemund, Dayana Yastremska and Marta Kostyuk all advanced on Monday.

Tuesday #1 Ash Barty, #2 Aryna Sabalenka, #3 Qiang Wang and #5 Dayana Yastremska are all in action. #4 Caroline Garcia will also be in action as she has a third set to play in her first round match.

Here are my picks for the action Tuesday in Strasbourg.

Monica Puig (-164) vs Astra Sharma (+120)

Monica Puig opened up her Strasbourg Invitational with a quick 6-1 6-1 win over Tatjana Maria on Monday. Puig started her clay court season with a run to the semifinals in Charleston, but has struggled since, so this dominant performance will be big for Puig. The Puerto Rican is currently 9-3 on the dirt in 2019.

Astra Sharma knocked off #8 Shuai Zhang in the opening round Monday and is now just one win away from her second quarterfinal of the season. Sharma has had an up and down clay court season as she has fallen in the first round of Charleston and ITF Dothan, but sandwiched in between those first round exits was a run to the final in Bogota. Sharma is 9-3 on the dirt in 2019.

Monica Puig gets the win Tuesday.

This is the first meeting between the two.

Aryna Sabalenka (-164) vs Laura Siegemund (+120)

Aryna Sabalenka snapped her three match losing streak with a dominant 6-0 6-1 win over Lin Zhu on Sunday. Sabalenka opened 2019 with a title in Shenzhen, but has really struggled since as she has made just one other quarterfinal all season. Since getting on clay the Belarusian has not gotten past the second round and entered Strasbourg with back-to-back first round losses in Madrid and Rome. Sabalenka is 3-4 on clay in 2019.

Laura Siegemund picked up a straight set victory over Renata Zarazua Monday to get her first main draw win since late April. Siegemund has struggled this season in general, but has not been able to string together back-to-back main draw wins in Europe. Siegemund is 8-5 on clay in 2019.

Aryna Sabalenka advances to the quarters.

Aryna Sabalenka leads the H2H 1-0, but this will be the first meeting on clay.

WTA Strasbourg International Best Bets – May 20th

The 2019 Strasbourg Invitation got underway Sunday with five main draw matches featuring three seeded players. It was easy work for most of the favorites as four of the five won in straight sets and the lone woman to go to three sets dropped just four games total in the final two sets. #2 Aryna Sabalenka, #3 Qiang Wang, #7 Saisai Zheng, Rebecca Peterson and Fiona Ferro were all victorious in the opening day of the tournament.

10 of the final 11 first round matches will be played on Monday with #4 Caroline Garcia, #5 Sofia Kenin, #6 Dayana Yastremska and #8 Shuai Zheng all getting their campaigns started.

Here are my picks for the action Monday in Strasbourg.

Monica Puig (-200) vs Tatjana Maria (+150)

The 2014 champion of this tournament, Monica Puig, returns to a main draw match for the first time since her run to semifinals in Charleston in early April. Puig lost in the qualifying stages of both Madrid and Rome the last two weeks, so she will be looking to find some form for the French Open. Puig sits at 8-3 on clay in 2019. Puig was not competing at this time last season.

Tatjana Maria, like Puig, failed in the qualifying stages of both Rome and Madrid and will be looking to end her four match losing streak. Maria won her first clay match of the season, in Charleston, but since heading to Europe she is winless in three opportunities. The German is 1-4 on clay in 2019. Maria lost in the first round here last season.

I like Monica Puig to get the win Monday.

Monica Puig leads the overall H2H 1-0 with that lone meeting taking place on the dirt.

Dayana Yastremska (-250) vs Pauline Parmentier (+175)

Dayana Yastremska is have a tough go of things since winning the title at Hua Hin in early February. The 19-year-old Ukrainian is on a four match losing streak and has lost six out of her last seven matches overall.  Yastremska has gone 14-5 and 11-5 on clay the past two seasons, but she is currently 0-3 on the surface in 2019. Yastremska did compete during this week of the season in 2018.

Pauline Parmentier is also having a tough time on tour lately as she has won just three times in her last 10 matches played. Parmentier has enjoyed success on clay over the year, winning the 2018 title in Istanbul, but so far this season the Frenchwoman sits at 3-6 on the surface. Parmentier lost in the second round here last season.

Dayana Yastremska snaps here four match losing streak.

Dayana Yastremska leads the H2H 1-0, but this will be the first meeting on clay.

WTA Strasbourg International Best Bets – May 19th

The women, and men, are just one week away from the French Open, but there is never an off week in tennis, so some of the top women in the game head to the Strasbourg Invitational for one more week of tune up matches. Sunday will be busy as there are six main draw matches and six final qualifying matches to get this show going. #8 Ash Barty and #10 Aryna Sabalenka headline this field of 32 women and the likes of Caroline Garcia, Sofia Kenin and Monica Puig are also competing this week.

The #2 seed Aryna Sabalenka, #3 Qiang Want and #7 Saisai Zheng are in action on the first day of the Strasbourg Invitational.

Here are my picks for the first day of action in Strasbourg.

Rebecca Peterson (-250) vs Magda Linette (+175)

Rebecca Peterson went up a break early in her first round match against Serena Williams, last week in Rome, but the Swede ultimately fell 6-4 6-2 to the G.O.A.T. Besides for her first defeat in Rome, Peterson has won at least one match in every clay court tournament she has entered and made a quarterfinal run in Rabat. Peterson is currently 6-3 on clay this season. This week last season Peterson was successfully qualifying for the French Open.

Magda Linette enters Strasbourg on a four match losing streak and has lost six out of her last seven matches. Linette has an anomaly clay court season, back in 2012, where she went 16-7, but since then the Pole has had just two winning seasons on the surface and has not won more than six times in a single season. Linette sits at 1-5 this season on clay. The Pole lost in the first round here last year.

Rebecca Peterson gets the win.

This will be the first meeting between the two.

Qiang Wang (-152) vs Jennifer Brady (+110)

Qiang Wang has suffered a rough go of it since hitting the European clay in 2019. Besides a quarterfinal run in Prague, Wang has suffered three first round losses and is currently on a three match losing streak. Wang has never been great on clay, but she would be disappointed with how 2019 has gone as she has played the best tennis of her career over the last nice months. The Chinese woman is 2-4 on clay in 2019. The world #17 made a run to the quarterfinals at this tournament in 2018.

Jen Brady is not having any fun on clay as she has played in just two tournaments and fell in the second round of Prague and the final qualifying round of Madrid. Brady has not had a winning record on clay since 2016 and has never won more than four matches on the surface in any other season of her career. Brady is 2-2 on clay in 2019. Brady lost in the first round here last season.

Qiang Wang gets the win.

Jen Brady leads the H2H 1-0, but this will be the first meeting on clay.
