For tennis betting today we are taking a look at this very interesting First Round match from the WTA in Montreal.

Elise Mertens has yet to suffer a defeat against Giorgi and heads into this match as the favourite. But it looks like a tricky one.

Camila Giorgi Preview – Can Giorgi defy the odds?

Italy’s Camila Giorgi reached the Fourth Round at the Olympic Games which was played on the hard court.

Her campaign was ended by Elina Svitolina, but in that progress to that stage, Giorgi pulled out a superb victory over Karolina Pliskova.

There is a quote of 11/8 on Giorgi winning this match in the outright market for tennis betting* (odds taken 18:38 GMT on August 9th 2021 at Betfair).

The Italian is no forlorn hope either in this match.

In her last 14 matches in all tournaments, Giorgi has posted a W10 L4 record.

Giorgi is on a positive 17/12 win/loss record this season on the WTA

There hasn’t been a title for her. But she reached the final of Eastbourne in June, beating some very strong opposition along the way.

Our betting prediction:
Giorgi 2-1 set betting

So it has been a pretty decent season for Giorgi who is ranked just outside of the Top 70 in the world.

She has met Mertens twice before and Giorgi has lost both of those.

They were both 2-0 set defeats as well, one of those happening on the hard court in Osaka Japan in 2019.

But looking at the current form ahead of tennis betting, we think that Giorgi can pose a substantial threat.

There is a quote of 10/11 odds-on this match going over 21.5 games* (odds taken 18:38 GMT on August 9th 2021 at Betfair).


Elise Mertens Preview – Can Mertens pick up the win?

Belgium’s Elise Mertens lost in the first round of the Olympic Games, suffering an upset.

She was at San Jose last week in more hard court action and got through a couple of rounds.

Her run was ended in defeat by Daria Kasatkina.

It hasn’t been the greatest of form therefore by Mertens is a Top 20 player in the world.

In the match outright for Tuesday’s fixture, Mertens is the 4/7 odds-on favourite* (odds taken 18:38 GMT on August 9th 2021 at Betfair).

But that may not be the way to go, not in terms of tennis betting value.

Mertens looks vulnerable in this one.

Elise Mertens has won a title this year and holds a 26/13 positive win/loss record for the season.

The title win for her happened in Melbourne in early February.

She followed that up with a good semi-final in Dubai and a runner up spot in Istanbul in April.

But there has not been that kind of form from her since the very start of the clay swing this season.

We think Mertens does come under pressure in this one.

For backers of her success, the 2-1 Set Betting option could be the approach at 3/1* (odds taken 18:38 GMT on August 9th 2021 at Betfair).
