The reigning world number one Ashleigh Barty will take on Paula Badosa Gilbert today at 12pm in the first Semi-final of the WTA Madrid Open.

We know very well that Ashleigh Barty is a solid player on hard courts, but her game style seems to be unbeatable on clay too at the moment. We remember very well how dominant she was at French Open two years ago, back in 2019, when she has only dropped two sets before beating Vondrousova in the final. The Australian has only lost one of her eleven matches on clay this year and she did well to lift the trophy in Stuttgart a week ago. Here in Madrid, Barty has lost just two sets after her victories over Rogers, Zidansek, Swiatek, and Kvitova.

Meanwhile, Paula Badosa has enjoyed a solid run on clay over the past month. She has reached the Semi-finals of the Charleston 2 tournament but entered this Madrid tournament with minimal expectation. She arrived as a wildcard but looked incredibly strong in her wins over Krejcikova, Teichmann, Sevastova, and Bencic.

Badosa is in the best form of her career at the moment, but we think that it’s not enough to defeat Ashleigh Barty here.

Ashleigh Barty to win 2-0 looks like a decent prediction here and it pays at 8/11.

The match is available to watch live on desktop, mobile or tablet devices in the UK and various other regions worldwide.
