Tennis: Day 14 – Our experts are predicting Swiatek goes back-to-back in titles against Muchova. At Roland Garros, all eyes will be on the women’s singles final where Iga Swiatek will be vying for her third French Open trophy. However, standing in her way is an unexpected and unseeded opponent, Karolina Muchova. Will the world #1 take care of business, or is a massive upset in the cards? Let’s dive into the experts best bets in sport for French Open Tennis Day 14 at Roland Garros.
Iga Swiatek vs. Karolina Muchova Under 19.5 games (-130)
Swiatek has been dominant throughout the tournament, not dropping a set so far. She has only exceeded the 19.5 games mark once, which was against Beatriz Haddad Maia in the semifinals. Prior to that, Swiatek had not played more than 18 games in any match during the tournament. Haddad Maia posed a challenge for Swiatek with her powerful hitting, which sometimes troubles the Polish player. However, Muchova’s game should provide a more favorable matchup for the top seed. Muchova relies on spins, slices, and craftiness rather than power. While Muchova has made an impressive run to the final, I believe Swiatek’s game will prevail. It’s also worth noting that Swiatek already has three Grand Slam titles under her belt, while Muchova is playing in her first slam final.
Iga Swiatek vs. Karolina Muchova Under 3.5 aces (-110)
This bet correlates nicely with the first play, as a shorter match would result in fewer opportunities for aces. If the match is decided in two sets, this bet should be in good shape. Swiatek has been averaging less than 2 aces per match throughout the tournament (10 aces in 6 rounds). Muchova has a total of 6 aces so far.
It’s important to consider how frequently each player gets aced. Muchova faced 5 aces from Aryna Sabalenka in the semifinals, but that match was a grueling 7-6(5), 6-7(5), 7-5 battle, and Sabalenka possesses one of the biggest serves in women’s tennis. Prior to that match, Muchova had been aced 2, 0, 0, 1, and 0 times. Swiatek has been aced only 4 times in 6 matches. Both players tend to return from behind the baseline and focus on getting the ball back in play rather than going for aggressive returns.
As always, it’s important to do your own research and consider the latest information and odds before making your wagers. Enjoy the final day of Roland Garros!
