It is impossible to recommend a bet in the French Open final. If the match is played on merit, Swiatek should win with a bit to spare. However, Gauff could raise her game, and betting Swiatek to cover the handicap isn’t a gimme!
JULE NIEMEIER vs LINDA NOSKOVA – BETTING PICK
It remains to be seen if Linda Noskova has the maturity to make a match of it with Jule Niemeier. From a talent perspective, the 17-year-old as a lot going for her. Furthermore, she tends to be a quick starter, thus taking the handicap start should prove fruitful.
In the first two rounds, Noskova beat proven clay players Ekaterine Gorgodze and ViktoriyaTomova. While beating Tara Wurth means little to us, the local player had made it to the quarter-final. Furthermore, Noskova coped with the fan’s favourite.
Meanwhile, Jule Niemeier is enjoying these slower courts, albeit she’s not been at her best. In fact, the 22-year-old served 20 double faults in her three matches, and her decision making isn’t what it should be.
For the record, in the first round, Astra Sharma was giving her a good match before being forced to retire. Subsequently, Xiyu Wang took the first set tie break from Niemeier, and Anastasia Gasanova had every chance in the 2nd set. Unfortunately, the Russian’s unforced-error tally was too much!
In summary, Niemeier is made for clay, and she’s got optimum conditions. Nevertheless, she isn’t the most rational of players, and she doesn’t have much depth in her game. In comparison, Noskova is an all-court type of player. She’s got more natural ability than her opponent, and her confidence is growing. While the youngster lacks a bit of experience, she’s capable of causing an upset.
BET: LINDA NOSKOVA +3.5
