Beatriz Haddad Maia and Simona Halep will square off in the final of the National Bank Open 2022 on Sunday at 6.30pm (UK Time).
Beatriz Haddad Maia has had an impressive grass season in 2022, having won 13 out of 15 matches. During this impressive run, Haddad Maia has won titles in Nottingham and Birmingham.
She blasted her way into the National Bank Open final this week and the degree of difficulty has been mesmerizing. The Brazilian has won back-to-back matches over four top-25 opponents in the shape of Fernandez, Swiatek, Bencic and Pliskova.
Beatriz became the first Brazilian player to reach a WTA 1000 final and she is also the only Brazilian ranked inside the top 100.
Meanwhile, Simona Halep holds a record of 13 victories and just two defeats in her last 15 matches across both grass and hard surfaces. The Romanian has been in good shape, but unfortunately, she hasn’t won any title during this run.
She is 36 with 10 for the season, with only Swiatek and JAbeur having won more matches.
Simona has dropped just one set in her five matches in Toronto this week, which was actually in her semifinal match against Jessica Pegula. She had to fight from one set down in order to book her place in the final.
Simona Halep has won this Canadian tournament back in 2018, when it was hosted in Montreal.
The most recent meeting between these two ended in three sets, so our prediction for this clash is Over 20.5 Games at odds of 4/5 with Bet365.
Haddad Maia v Halep is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 6.30pm BST.
