The two highest ranked players left in the event will face each other at semifinals. Join us while we analyze how the two have performed so far and select the best bet for WTA Tianjin.

Karolina Pliskova (3) vs Agnieszka Radwanska (2)
Karolina Pliskova will try to win her first match against Agnieszka Radwanska after four straight losses, however, the Polish is the main favorite for this match and seems too strong at the time.

The first months of 2015 were remarkable for Pliskova however it has been difficult for her to keep that level lately. Despite the poor results in last weeks the Czech is already in Tianjin’s semifinals and just one win away from the decisive match.

The first round was incredibly tough against Kristina Kucova but the Czech managed to emerge victorious by 3 – 6 6 – 3 7 – 5. After that two much better performances against Magda Linette and Timea Babos, not being broken a single time in both matches.

Radwanska is the main favorite for the title and seem unlikely that she doesn’t live Tianjin with the title. After two easy wins in first two matches, the Polish needed to work a little harder in order to overcome Elizaveta Kulichkova. Agnieszka was 3 – 5 down on first set but raised the level to win that first set on a tie break.

Radwanska has been returning very well on this Asian swing winning 54.2% of return games, this week her numbers are even more impressive with 69.6% games won when returning to serve.

Agnieszka won all four previous meetings between them, the most recent was played at Tokyo, few weeks ago, where Radwanska won 7 – 5 6 – 2. In fact, Pliskova was never able to win a single set against this opponent.

Radwanska has been playing some of her best tennis lately while Karolina has struggled to perform at a consistent level. Agnieska’s counter punching skills are quite effective against Pliskova’s powerful groundstrokes and the Czech doesn’t seem to have the required consistency to defeat this opponent.

Great opportunity for Radwanska to collect another title and we’ll add to our tennis picks the value on her spread tennis odds.

Tennis Pick: Agnieszka Radwanska -5.0 (+101) at Pinnacle
