Next game week is coming to an end WTA tour, where all the attention was drawn to Canada. Today in Toronto on hard courts tournament category Premier 5 will be played two semi-finals and we’ll find out who tomorrow will compete for the status of the new champion.
In the second match of this stage, the strongest will define the legendary American Serena Williams and a young, but very promising Czech Maria Bouzkova.
Tennis players will hold the first meeting among themselves in history. Very wondering whether, with no experience of matches of this level in the Czech Republic, to battle the award-winning SW, to withstand not only the pressure of the public on the Central court, but also the credibility of the opponent. Or Serena will conduct a master class for budding tennis players.
- Serena Williams
- Maria Bouzkova
- The coefficients and forecast
37-year-old American started in Toronto in the status of the tenth racket of the world, and despite this, initially, was considered one of the main favorites for the title.
There have been suggestions that Serena will come to this tournament very angry after the revelation of the shameful defeat in the Wimbledon finals from Simona Halep 2-6, 2-6 and will try to rehabilitate themselves not only to the tennis world, but primarily to herself. The better the competition and not think, because in Toronto Williams, Jr. three times lifted the trophy in 2001, 2011 and 2015 and has twice played in the semi-finals of 2009 and 2015. Last here is a drawing of an American missed for a very good reason for the birth of the child.
For Williams this will be the first semi-final on hard courts this season after the four tournaments played. Here Serena as her rival, did not give any one party. American held alternately Mertens, Alexandrov and Osaka, and more confident just figured out the biggest competitor in the face of Japanese women, without giving any of their submission, and making one grandmaster break in each set.
21-year-old Czech for the first time playing the canadian tournament category Premier 5 which is held in annually in Toronto or Montreal. Today Bouzkova is on the 91st place in the world ranking, but next Monday will be already, at least 30 positions higher, regardless of the result of this match.
Here Maria began with qualification, having won there dry wins over Jaksic and Vickery. At this pace, the Czech continued to play in the main draw, having dealt alternately in two sets with Stevens, Ostapenko and Simona Halep.
However, against Romania needed to win only the starting game, after which “Super Simon” was removed.
The coefficients and forecast
Serena Williams is a clear favourite in this semifinal confrontation, according to bookmakers. To win the American see the factor 1.22, on Bouzkova – 4.8.
Think the quotes are quite justified given the playing manners of the players class, the experience of such matches, achievements in career and current form. I think Mary too much of the fart was on the grid in terms of the weak form of the opponents, can not be said about Serena. Williams came to Toronto extremely motivated after failing in the finals of Wimbledon, and configured to finally win the first trophy of the season.
So, I’ll be trying to build in terms of the forecast from the mistress. Offer to stop the choice on the variation of the dry victory Serena Williams for the excellent ratio of BC Parimatch.
