After defeating the main favorite Stephens, Sasnovich will now play against the 2nd seed Schmiedlova. Find out our betting pick for this match from the WTA Seoul semifinals.

Aliaksandra Sasnovich vs. Anna Karolina Schmiedlova (2)
Aliaksandra Sasnovich is making a huge run this week, she came from qualifying and reaches this semifinal with all 6 wins in straight sets. Sasnovich is a very aggressive player, tries to get the ball early and dictate the rallies however she’s also far from consistent and one of the major reasons why she hasn’t been able to get good results on WTA like she’s doing this week.

Anna Karolina Schmiedlova is one of the main contenders for the title and in our tournament preview we adviced to back her for the title. Schmiedlova is having a tremendous year and has the possibility to reach her 4th season WTA final after winning already two titles.

Schmiedlova has fought hard this week winning all matches in three sets and showing huge determination. Anna’s backhand is clearly her best shot and she can open the court very well with that shot forcing her opponents to move.

They played once last year at US Open where Sasnovich won in straight sets however Schmiedlova is a much better player since last season and should be able to get the job done this time.

The Slovakian’s ability to open the court with her groundstrokes will be the key for this match forcing Sasnovich to move and not allowing her to be in good position to hit her powerful groundstrokes.

Schmiedlova counter puncher skills and groundstrokes variety should be just too much for Sasnovich and clearly worth add to our tennis picks the value on Schmiedlova’s tennis odds.

Tennis Pick: Anna Karolina Schmiedlova -2.5 (-106) at Pinnacle
