Known as one of the most promising young players on the WTA Tour, Jelena Ostapenko became the youngest woman to reach a Grand Slam final since Caroline Wozniacki at the 2009 US Open. Adding to this, Ostapenko is also the first unseeded player to reach the Roland Garros final since 1983. Taking a look now at Jelena’s campaign in Paris, the 20-year-old Latvian booked a place in the French Open final after a three-set battle against Timea Bacsinszky. Despite facing one of the best defenders on the tour, Ostapenko ended the match with 50 winners and only 45 unforced errors.

Simona Halep continues her quest for a first Grand Slam title. Playing on clay brings the best out of Halep with a phenomenal 20 – 2 record on red dirt in 2017. Despite some concerns regarding Simona’s physical condition due to an ankle injury, the world no.4 is fully recovered from that problem. Considering now Halep’s numbers in Roland Garros, the highlight clearly goes to her serve with the Romanian winning 77.40% of her service games throughout the tournament.

Due to Simona’s higher experience at this level and extraordinary record on clay in recent months, it’s not surprising to see the Romanian as the heavy favorite. However, Ostapenko is playing at a superb level and it won’t be easy for Halep to beat her. Adding to this, the pressure is all on Simona’s side while Jelena has nothing to lose this match. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of Ostapenko’s tennis betting odds by adding the Latvian’s set handicap to your betting picks.
