Today’s Tennis betting tips sizes up some matches from both the WTA and ATP.

The big tennis action for the summer rolls on to the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

Both on the men’s and women’s side of things, these are top tier tournaments on the respective Tours. Only the Grand Slams rank higher.

For today’s tennis betting action we are taking a look at two picks from the opening round on the WTA and one from the ATP.


Best Tennis Betting Tips Today: Dan Evans v Diego Schwartzman

Tennis betting tips today next turns attention to Britain’s Dan Evans who has a rough opening fixture in Cincinnati.

He faces 10th seed, Diego Schwartzman.

There has been a little dip in form from Evans, who has now lost his last three matches.

That slump started with a Third Round exit at Wimbledon.

Evans was in action in Toronto last weekend, getting eliminated in the first round 2-0 by Alexander Bublik.

This will be the first meeting between Evans and Schwartzman on the ATP.

It is not as if Schwartzman has been in terrific form.

The Argentine lost in the second round in Toronto last week, going out against Roberto Bautista-Agut.

He has not won more than two matches in any of his last three tournament appearances.

We just have to pull form from their respective results on the hard court.

Evans has lost his last five such matches, winning one of his last seven.

Tennis Betting Picks Today: Maria Sakkari v Angelique Kerber

Tennis betting for today looks at Maria Sakkari v Angelique Kerber.

This is a big clash in the first round of Cincinnati and it’s going to be Greek star Maria Sakkari, who is our pick.

Sakkari has been struggling a little for form, really since the end of the clay swing.

She lost in the second round of Wimbledon and then the third round of the Olympics.

Last week on the hard court of Montreal, Sakkari bowed out in the third round against Victoria Azarenka.

But there should be a reasonable chance for Sakkari to progress past the first round on Monday.

That’s because Germany’s Angelique Kerber is coming in cold.

Kerber had a great season on the grass, winning a title on home turf in Germany, before going deep into the draw at Wimbledon.

But that’s been well over a month now since she last played.

We just imagine that Sakkari will find a way to outlast her as she did when beating the German 2-0 in Melbourne earlier this year.

Tennis for Today: Barbora Krejcikova v Daria Kasatkina

Today’s Tennis betting tips signs off with a look at one of the outstanding performers of 2021, who has been Barbora Krecjikova.

Out of the blue, she lifted the French Open title in June and a month later she was back in title-winning form again.

That was in Prague on a switch to the hard court following a Fourth Round exit at Wimbledon.

This is the first action by the Czech player since losing to Belinda Bencic in the third round of the Olympics.

This is a tricky opener that Krecjikova gets in Cincinnati against Russia’s Daria Kasatkina.

It will be the first time that the two have met.

Bet at Marathonbet

Kasatkina lost in the second round of Montreal last week to Ons Jabeur which came straight after a Fourth Round exit at San Jose.

The Russian did win a title on the hard court of St Petersburg earlier this year.

This is likely to be tight, but the slightly better current form is with Krejicova.
