Karolina Pliskova Preview – Will Pliskova prevail?

One of the front runners for the gold medal at the Olympics is Karolina Pliskova.

After missing out in the recent Wimbledon Final to Ashleigh Barty, gold in Japan would go a long way to lift Pliskova.

In the match outright for Olympic tennis betting, Pliskova is a quote of 4/9 for the win* (odds taken 21:19 GMT on July 26th 2021 at Ladbrokes).

The Czech player, who is ranked 7th in the world, opened with a straight-set victory over Alize Cornet in the First Round.

Then she needed three sets to get past Carla Suarez Navarro in the second round.

In the intense heat out in Japan, any extra set is going to be highly unwelcome.

But that may not be enough to trip up the challenge of Pliskova in this one.

With that deep run at Wimbledon, that has been a big return to form for Pliskova who is now W8 L1 in her last nine matches.

There had been a little slump in form from her before then, having lost three matches in a row.

One of those defeats was against Camila Giorgi.

Our betting prediction:
Over 21.5 Games

* (odds taken 21:19 GMT on July 26th 2021 at Ladbrokes)


So that defeat against the Italian at Eastbourne on the WTA Tour last month is what makes this interesting.

That leaves Pliskova at W5 L2 against Giorgi.

Four of those five victories for Pliskova over Giorgi happened on Hard Courts.

Each of the last three meetings between the two players have gone the distance.

So a Pliskova 2-1 set betting option for Olympic Tennis is at a quote of 3/1* (odds taken 21:19 GMT on July 26th 2021 at Ladbrokes).

Will that trend continue as they meet up on Wednesday for a place in the Quarter Finals?


Camila Giorgi Preview – Can Giorgi do it again against Pliskvova?

Camila Giorgi has come straight through the first couple of rounds of action in Japan without having dropped a set.

She opened the campaign with a win over the 2021 Australian Open runner-up Jennifer Brady before finishing off against Elena Vesnina.

There has not been the kind of current form from Giorgi that Pliskova has produced.

The best finish that she has had at any tournament this year was at Eastbourne where she got through three rounds before having to retire ahead of her semi-final match against Anett Kontaveit.

With the wins at the Olympics so far that’s moved Giorgi onto a W4 L2 record in her last six matches.

In the match outright for tennis betting, Giorgi is at a quote of 7/4 odds for the victory* (odds taken 21:19 GMT on July 26th 2021 at Ladbrokes).

She does look as if she is going to be up against it a little bit.

Camila Giorgi’s victory at Eastbourne over Pliskova piques plenty of interest for this match.

In that fixture, Giorgi had dropped the first set, before hitting back 6-2, 6-2 to turn the match on its head.

This is only the third time since August last year that Georgi has managed to produce back to back match wins.

But in the last round, Giorgi raced through her match, dropping just nine games.

So that should at least keep her fresh.

Over 21.5 Games is at a quote of 10/11 for tennis betting on Wednesday* (odds taken 21:19 GMT on July 26th 2021 at Ladbrokes).

While Karolina Pliskova is the favourite here, there has been up-and-down form from her this season.

Only in two tournaments this season has Pliskova managed to win at least three matches.
