WTA Linz
The Generali Ladies Linz takes place in Linz and will be played in Indoor Hard Court.

 

Main Contenders
The fast Indoor conditions suit Caroline Wozniacki counter punching style and the Danish has her best career results in this game conditions. Caroline was far from impressive in Asian swing with a 4 – 3 record and this is an extremely competitive tournament.

The last match Wozniacki played on Indoor Hard was last year in Singapore and she might struggle to adjust to the game conditions. Adding to this, she’ll face in first round a very powerful and dangerous opponent, Mirjana Lucic-Baroni.

There are other dangerous players in her side of the draw such as US Open runner up, Roberta Vinci, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova or Mona Barthel.

Wozniacki is priced at 5.00 at Bet365 and due to her lower level lately she cannot be trusted.

Lucie Safarova returns to competition after missing Asian swing due to a bacterial infection. This has been Safarova’s best season ever and she’s in good position to qualify for Singapore Finals.

Safarova’s left-handed slice serve is quite effective in Indoor Hard Court and she can make a lot of damage with her forehand, however this will be Lucie’s first match since US Open and she’s known for being extremely inconsistent. Due to her lack of matches in last week’s there is no value on her tennis odds at 6.00 on bet365.

 

Player to Keep an Eye On
Last year’s runner up, Camila Giorgi, is looking for another good run in this tournament. The Italian is the most aggressive player on tour but struggles to perform at a consistent level.

Giorgi’s biggest problem is the serve, in last 12 months she averaged 0.82 double faults per service game but in Indoor her numbers are much better with 0.58 double faults per game. The major reason is absence of wind and sun that might affect Giorgi’s serve.

Camila is priced at 15.00 on bet365, she has a massive game for this game conditions and we’ll add her to our tennis picks.
