Naomi Osaka vs. Daria Kasatkina (20)

Naomi Osaka’s dream run continues in Indian Wells. Against all expectations, the 20-year-old produced one of her best ever performances to defeat the world No.1 Simona Halep 6 – 3 6 – 0. Despite her undeniable quality, Osaka continues her quest for a first ever professional title. In addition to her defeat against Caroline Wozniacki on her previous WTA Final at the 2016 Japan Open, the Japanese holds a terrible 0 – 5 record throughout her career in championship matches on the ITF Tour.

Regardless of this Sunday’s outcome, Daria Kasatkina already secured her career-high ranking next week. Adding to this, the talented youngster is just one win away from an unprecedented appearance in the top-10. At the age of 20, Kasatkina is going through the best moment in her career with an outstanding 80.00% winning record since February. On the other hand, the Russian won 83.33% of the matches played against top-10 opponents in 2018. Looking now at Daria’s campaign on this event, the No.20 seed reaches this stage of the competition after an epic encounter against Venus Williams that lasted almost three hours.

This should be a very interesting contest between two of the most promising young players on the WTA Tour. Kasatkina became the youngest Indian Wells women’s finalist since 2011 while Osaka is the first Japanese to reach the final at the BNP Paribas Open. Despite Naomi’s brilliant performance in the previous round, it won’t be easy for the world No.44 to overcome such a great defender as Kasatkina. Adding to this, the high bouncing conditions in the California desert should benefit Daria’s heavy topspin. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the value on Kasatkina’s tennis betting odds by adding the Russian to your betting picks.
