WTA Stuttgart

The Porsche Tennis Grand Prix takes place at the Porsche Arena in Stuttgart with clay as the chosen surface for this WTA Premier event.

Defending Champion

Born and raised in Stuttgart, Laura Siegemund feels at home at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix. The defending champion needed a wild card to get in the main draw after 10 months away from the tour due to an ACL rupture. Despite long absence, Siegemund always produce her best tennis on this event with an extraordinary 13 – 1 record since 2016 in Stuttgart. At the age of 30, Laura is trying to become the third player to win back-to-back titles in the Porsche Arena.

Siegemund began her title defense with a 6 – 4 6 – 3 win over Barbora Strycova. The Czech couldn’t find the answer to Laura’s aggressive playing style with only 11 winners against 25 from the German. Adding to this, Siegemund only conceded one break of serve throughout the entire match. Looking now at Laura’s draw on this event, the world No.100 returns to action this Thursday against Coco Vandeweghe. Despite Coco’s undeniable quality, Siegemund is a terrible match-up for the American with Laura winning all their previous three official encounters. Moreover, the conditions in Stuttgart should benefit the German on this contest. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the value on Siegemund’s tennis betting odds as the most valuable play for this match.

Player to Keep an Eye

Elina Svitolina will make her first apperance at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart. Known as one of the greatest clay court players in the game, the Ukrainian won 87.50% of the matches played on red dirt over the last 12 months. On the other hand, Svitolina got off to a flying start in 2018 with an outstanding 81.82% winning record so far this season on the WTA Tour.

Svitolina will begin her 2018 Stuttgart campaign this Thursday against Czech qualifier Marketa Vondrousova. The 18-year-old produced one of her best ever performances to defeat Julia Goerges in the opening round. Nevertheless, it won’t be easy for Vondrousova to overcome such a great competitor as Svitolina. Even though this is only Elina’s first appearance in Stuttgart, it’s impossible to ignore her brilliant record on clay in recent months. Having said that, our advice is for you to add Svitolina’s -3.5 spread at -130 at 5Dimes to your betting picks. Adding to this, placing a bet on the Ukrainian’s outright at +600 might also be an interesting approach for this tournament.
