Bet and win

Belinda Bencic

Not easy is the start of the 2020 season for Belinda Bencic. Started this season with a defeat in the first round of the tournament in Shenzhen from Blinkova (6-3, 3-6, 3-6). The following managed to reach the quarterfinals in Adelaide, but the game was not the most convincing.

In Melbourne, in the first round, Bencic also experienced problems in the match against Shmidlova (6-3, 7-5). Just 15 breakpoints had an opponent, of which four realized. On the second serve, Belinda was able to take only 39% of the points.

Jelena Ostapenko

Hidden before the start of the 2020 season, Jelena Ostapenko. I have not played in any of the pre-helmet tournaments. There were concerns in terms of prediction and bets on the first match performed by Jelena against Samsonova. However, the Latvian tennis player was pleasantly surprised by her game and victory in the first round (6-1, 6-4).

We note the match a successful game at its pitch from Ostapenko. I took 80% of the points on the first serve, completed 11 aces. Never in a match did she give her opponent a serve. Only three double mistakes allowed herself to make a match.

Statistics and personal meetings

  • In a single personal meeting, the victory went to Ostapenko.
  • Over the past three seasons, Ostapenko twice in the Australian Open went into the third round.

Belinda Bencic vs Jelena Ostapenko Prediction

Starting matches in Melbourne were held differently by Bencic and Ostapenko. Belinda won largely due to rival mistakes. Elena was able to demonstrate reliable tennis in the first match.

In a personal meeting, the Latvian tennis player was also stronger. Perhaps, after all his failures, Ostapenko will be transformed in the 2020 season? We think that for a coefficient above 2.40 it is worth checking the bet on the underdog’s victory in this match.

Our prediction is the victory of Ostapenko.
