MADISON KEYS vs JELENA OSTAPENKO – FREE PICK
To begin with, Madison Keys needs time between tournaments! On that note, this will be her first match since losing in the third round of the Australian Open.
In Melbourne, the 28-year-old was stopped in her tracks by Victoria Azarenka. Nevertheless, Keys won her other seven matches this season, including five at the Nations Cup.
The American started the week at rank 23, which compares to a career-high rank of seven. For the record, she leads today’s opponent 3-1 on the head-to-head, albeit it was 1-1 last year.
As the winner of $15 million in Prize money, it is fair to assume Keys won plenty of big pots. In fact, Madison is a former US Open Finalist, and she also made the semi-finals of the French and Australian opens.
However, on her two previous visits to Doha, Keys was dismissed in her second match. On that note, she’s tended to swerve playing tournaments in this part of the world!
Meanwhile, Jelena Ostapenko is 6-4 this season, with the highlight being a QF at the Australian Open. At the slam, the 25-year-old took out Cori Gauff, but she failed to take Elena Rybakina beyond two sets.
Ostapenko did at least manage to beat other high-class opponents, namely Danielle Collins and Karolina Pliskova. In 2022, the Latvian won Dubai before making it to the semi-final here, and in 2016 she was a finalist in this tournament.
For the most part, Ostapenko has already reached a good level this season. She’s proven on these courts, and we believe she will be zoned in for the challenge ahead. In a like-for-like match, this is more of a 50/50% call and the value is in betting the Latvian!
BET: JELENA OSTAPENKO
