Kirsten Flipkens vs. Heather Watson
With an outstanding run this week, Kirsten Flipkens reached her third career final. As we mentioned in our quarterfinals preview, the faster conditions in Monterrey suit Kirsten offensive tennis, with the Belgian winning an impressive average of 86.27% games on serve this week. Flipkens made a terrific comeback on her semifinals match against Anett Kontaveit, recovering from 3 – 5 to win the first set on a tiebreak. Kirsten said that she’s feeling very well mentally and that mental strength has been one of the keys for her successful journey in Monterrey.

We picked Caroline Garcia to cover her spread on her semifinals clash against Heather Watson, but the British was just too solid while Garcia couldn’t perform at her best due to a back injury. Heather’s serve has also been at an outstanding level on this event, with the world no.84 winning 78.57% of her service games – her numbers are even more impressive on her last two matches against Caroline Wozniacki and Garcia, dropping only 1 out of 18 service games.

This will be the third career meeting between these two players, with Flipkens winning the two previous contests. Despite that lead on h2h, both matches were played some years ago, with the most recent in 2014 where Flipkens emerged victorious on a third set tie break 

Watson has an outstanding career record on finals, winning the previous two she played on WTA and with a 4 – 1 record on ITF finals. Flipkens’ experience was crucial on her semifinals victory over Kontaveitt, but that won’t be enough this time. Heather is currently at a higher level, much stronger from the baseline and she should extend her perfect record on WTA finals. With this in mind, we advise taking advantage of Watson tennis odds by adding it to your tennis picks.
