The Abierto Mexicano takes place in Acapulco with Hard Court as the chosen surface for this WTA International event.
The 2016 Abierto Mexicano champion Sloane Stephens hopes to rediscover top form in Acapulco after a disappointing start to 2017. The No.1 seed hasn’t won a match in the eight she’s played since winning her first Grand Slam title at the US Open. Nevertheless, playing in Acapulco brings great memories to Stephens with the American winning 80.00% of the matches played throughout her career on this event.
Taking a look now at Sloane’s draw in Acapulco, the 2017 US Open champion makes her debut this Tuesday against Pauline Parmentier. Despite Stephens’ lack of success in recent months, it’s impossible to ignore the American’s undeniable talent. Adding to this, the fast court conditions in Acapulco should benefit Sloane on this match-up. Having said that, our advice is for you to add Sloane’s -1.5 Set Handicap to your betting picks at -108 at Pinnacle. On the other hand, placing a bet on the American’s outright at +650 at Coral is also an interesting approach for those who want to take a higher risk on this event.
Player to Keep an Eye
With Larri Passos and Gustavo Kuerten in her corner, Beatriz Haddad Maia could have a bright future ahead of her. Known as one of the most promising players in the game, the 21-year-old holds an outstanding 67.19% winning record over the last 12 months on the WTA Tour. Adding to this the Brazilian reached her first ever final on the WTA Tour at the Korea Open in September.
The world No.60 starts her campaign in Acapulco against Heather Watson. Despite the tough task ahead of her, it won’t be easy for the Brit to overcome such a powerful player as Haddad Maia on these fast court conditions. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the value on Beatriz’s tennis betting odds at +120 at 5Dimes as the best betting approach for this contest.
