Surprising week in Luxembourg with all eight seeds out of the competition before semifinals. Join us while we bring you the best value tennis pick for the WTA Luxembourg semifinals.

Misaki Doi vs Alison Van Uytvanck
It was a remarkable performance from Misaki Doi in her quarterfinals clash against Jelena Jankovic. We advise to take Doi’s spread as our WTA Luxembourg quarterfinals top play, expecting a good fight from the Japanese and Misaki did even better with a surprising upset.

Misaki is clearly enjoying the fast courts in Luxembourg and her return is making huge damage on her opponents. Against Jankovic, Misaki won 71% of points on the Serbian 2nd serve. The biggest problem for Doi is her serve; she’s a short player (5’3’’) and can’t make much damage with her serve.

Alison Van Uytvanck is a very talented player and produces her best tennis when playing in Indoor Hard Court. Alison has a very offensive mindset; she tries to take advantage in the rally with her groundstrokes and is always looking for an opportunity to close the point at the net.

This week Van Uytvanck got a massive win over Ana Ivanovic in 2nd round where she fired 17 aces and was only broken 2 times in 17 service games. After that win, she managed to keep the level in order to overcome Barbora Zahlavova Strycova in straight sets at quarterfinals.

This will be the first career meeting between two players in terrific shape; however, Alison seems to be playing at a higher level. The Belgian can make much more damage with her serve and has more variety on her game while Misaki is a more unidimensional player. The two players will be looking for their first WTA final and it should be the Belgian to guarantee a spot in Sunday’s decisive match.

Our top tennis pick for this match will be on Alison Van Uytvanck spread tennis odds.

Tennis Pick: Alison Van Uytvanck -3.0 (-103) at Pinnacle
