WTA INDIAN WELLS QUARTER-FINAL BETTING TIP
PAULA BADOSA GIBERT vs ANGELIQUE KERBER
Angelique Kerber laboured to wins over Daria Kasatkina and Katerina Siniakova. With that in mind, the 33-year-old was going to be in for a tough match against Ajla Tomljanovic. However, the Aussie never turned up, and Kerber went on to win by a convincing 6/4 6/1.
Taking that last result at face value would be wrong. Especially, after watching how the German struggled against Daria Kasatkina. In that match, we thought both players were extremely passive, and the quality of tennis was modest. In short, somebody had to advance, and the tennis god decided it would be the older player.
Make no mistake, heavily tattooed Paula Badosa Gibert is a much-improved player. After winning three matches to date, the 23-year-old is at a career-high rank (live chart) of 25. In fact, if she wins today she will reach the top twenty.
Badosa Gibert is 38/15 this year, including 14/7 on hard court. Her wins in Indian Wells were against solid opposition in Dayana Yastremska, Cori Gauff, and Barbora Krejcikova. Furthermore, she won her last two matches in straight-sets against in-form players.
The Spaniard was the winner of this years Belgrade, and she made the semi-finals of Madrid & Charleston. While those three tournaments were on clay, her win record across different surfaces is similar. Moreover, She’s proven herself on these slow courts.
In conclusion, Badosa Gibert’s profile is more convincing than that of her opponent. So far this year, she’s beaten Barty, Bencic, Vondrousova, Swiatek, and Rybakina. Based on what we have been watching, the profile of the Spaniard is more convincing!
