WTA Strasbourg Tips & Preview | Our Picks For This Week’s Tennis

Andy Watson in Tennis Betting Tips 22 May 2023

The Internationaux de Strasbourg tournament, also known as WTA Strasbourg, has been a fixture on tour since 1987, making it one of the most consistently played lower tier tournaments on the whole WTA Tour.

It is a good warm-up for the major around the corner being held in the same country and under similar conditions to the French Open.

This tournament often gets won by a high class operator. Angelique Kerber’s final title was here last year, Barbora Krejcikova, Elina Svitolina and Sam Stosur have all won this title recently.

In an interesting quirk as well, the final for this tournament has seen final set tie-breaks win it in three out of the last five years. Two of those finals actually saw three consecutive tie-breaks, a very unusual occurance.

WTA Strasbourg Betting Tips

Sorana Cirstea 1pt @ 10/3 with Bet365

The Romanian is in some of her best career form at the moment. Her surprise run to the Miami semi-finals has since been backed up by a win in the WTA Challenger event on clay in Reus.

She lost out in three sets to eventual semi-finalist Jelena Ostapenko in Rome last week, which is no shame at all. Clay is traditionally Cirstea’s best surface as well, winning 6% more matches on clay than any other surface. Cirstea has also been a previous finalist here in 2021.

She is the most likely winner of this tournament

Bernarda Pera 0.25pt EW @ 14/1 with Bet365

The American has a surprisingly high clay ELO rating, she is rated 10th in the world on the surface in the system. Whilst I believe that the ratings might have Pera a bit wrong here, it is clear that she has some ability on the surface. She won back-to-bac WTA250 events in the summer of last year, so she has good form at this level.

Emma Navarro 0.25pt EW @ 18/1 with Bet365

Navarro was in cracking form recently, winning twelve consecutive matches. That momentum might’ve stalled somewhat now that she has had back-to-back losses, but recent form of that ilk in this field is nothing to be sniffed at, especially when it comes with a nice price.

WTA Strasbourg Draw

The draw in Strasbourg is a 32-player draw, with 8 seeds.
