Andreescu vs Garcia: prediction for the WTA Bad Homburg match
Bianca Andreescu and Caroline Garcia have reached the final for the first time in the current season. Who will claim the title at Bad Homburg on June 25? We offer our prediction for the upcoming match.
Bianca Andreescu started the current season only in April. However, the former World No. 4 player managed to gain fantastic form, she proved that she is still a great player.
Bianca played only three matches on her way to the final of Bad Homburg tournament. She received a bye in the semi-final, because Simona Halep withdrew herself from the match. Andreescu beat all of her opponents quite easily. She recorded victories over Trevisan, Swan and Kasatkina in straight sets. Canadian player has no significant weaknesses right now.
Bad Homburg tournament is surely the most successful for Caroline Garcia so far in the season. Earlier in 2022, her best result was a semi-final at Lyon tournament. Just like her today's opponent, Caroline Garcia was a World No. 4 player once, but in recent years she is not so successful.
Garcia had a difficult path to the final. She had to play four matches, in two of them she played three sets. Caroline barely edged Cornet in the semi-final (7:6, 3:6, 7:5). Garcia also beat Sasnovich, Rakhimova and Lisicki in earlier rounds.
In three of five latest Garcia's matches no more than nine games were played in the second set
This bet played in two of three Andreescu's matches at Bad Homburg
Andreescu is a favourite of the final match by the bookmakers' choice and deservedly so. Canadian player performed better throughout the tournament, wasted less energy and it is hard to find a weak spot in her game. Garcia is also in a great form, but she is still inconsistent. She had an emotional semi-final match, so she is probably exhausted now.
Our prediction - Andreescu to win with a handicap of (-2.5) games
We are not expecting a long match in the final. Andreescu managed to beat all of her opponents in Bad Homburg quite easily. Garcia had an exhausting match in the semi-final, so she is unlikely to recover in time.
Our second bet is on total under 21 games
