TATJANA MARIA vs ELISABETTA COCCIARETTO – TOP PICK
At the start of the year, Elisabetta Cocciaretto reached a career-high rank of 48. Following her season 7-4, the Italian starts this tournament with a rank of 49.
In 2022, the now 22-year-old racked up a solid 45-23. For the record, she won three lower-grade tournaments in Oeiras (W80), Grado (W60), and Tapico (W115), and made the final of two others!
While two of those tournament wins came on clay, the bigger of the three was on a hard court. Furthermore, it was played in Mexico, and she beat the likes of Marie Bouzkova and Magda Linette.
Cocciaretto played more matches on clay, and she has a slightly higher win rate on that surface. Nevertheless, she’s 62.3% on hard courts, and she’s beaten higher-ranked opponents on such! With this in mind, it is fair to call Elisabetta a good all-rounder.
However, while the Italian won her first match against Marina Bassols Ribera, we expect this to be an even bigger challenge. After all, her opponent is last year’s Wimbledon semi-finalist, Tatjana Maria.
As for Maria, the mother of two is hard-working and a great role model to her daughters. In fact, during the last season, the 35-year-old went on to finish 47/30. While the highlight of the last campaign was making the semi-final of a Grand slam, she also won Bogota (W250) and Rome (W60).
The 35-year-old is currently ranked 73, albeit that would have been substantially higher if she was given points for Wimbledon. For the purpose of argument, the German player can be rated higher!
In the first round, Maria crucified another Italian, namely Lucia Bronzetti! Also, she recently won Pune (W40) and beat Dayana Yastremska on her way to the QF of Hua Hin.
To cut a long story short, at these odds, we are recommending Maria.
BET: TATJANA MARIA
Odds: 2.82 (2.86 Exchanges)
