➡️ Halep's rising to the Final continues
For the first women's semifinals we have Simona Halep from Romania against the Aussie Ashleigh Barty. In my opinion, Barty doesn't really know how she got this far. She is simply horrible. Yesterday, she won in straight sets against Bertens, but Bertens played really bad. She was very lucky. I believe that today's game will be an easy one for Halep. She won 2-0 against Garcia who played really well, she can also win with the same score today.
My bets for this match:
Simona Halep to win 2-0 @ 2,18
Simona Halep AH -2,5 @ 1,64
➡️ Will Sloane's defense be enough against Svitolina's attack?
For the second and last women's game we have the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina against the American Sloane Stephens. Stephens, in my opinion, is one of the worse women player to win a Grand Slam. Her game style in not good, however, she is so good at defending when she in on a rally what makes her win so much points. That's why she is a US Open champion and Roland Garros finalist. She doesn't lose too many times but when she does it's always on the first or second round. When she passes this rounds she usually is unstoppable till the final (for example Roland Garros 2018, when she only lost against Halep on the final, 2-1). On the other side we have Svitolina. She is a great player for sure, but she is mentally weak and I can't really see her winning this match. If she fails to take those long rallies and she'll start committing a lot of errors and it would be difficult to return to the game. Sloane takes this one.
My bet for this match:
Sloane Stephens to win @ 1,96
➡️ Greek flag will rise above Canadian sole
Today we have the Rogers Cup man's semifinals. For the first game we have Kevin Anderson from South Africa against our Greek friend Stefanos Tsitsipas. Once I saw that this would be the semifinal my decision was quite easy. Stefanos is playing so much better now, for the second straight week he is on the semifinals. He got here beating Novak Djokovic and Sascha Zverev (!) opponents that (and I'm 100% sure) Kevin Anderson wouldn't beat. They already met on this year in Estoril, Portugal on a game that I saw live and I enjoyed so much. I was supporting Stefanos and on the end he got the win. On my opinion Stefanos takes another one here. Take Tsitsi to reach the first masters 1000 finals of his career.
My bets for this match:
Stefanos Tsitsipas to win @ 2,58
➡️ Russian rocket takes place on Canada
For the last Rogers Cup game of the night we have the Spaniard and world number 1 Rafael Nadal against the best Russian player of the present, Karen Khachanov. When you see this two names you think about Rafael Nadal to win and the odds think the same, however, will Nadal do it? I think he will but not that easy. Khachanov is a beast, he has a rocket on his forehead but his backhand is not that good. Quite frankly I can't really see Khacha taking this one but he can do really damage to Nadal's game and I see him taking a lot of games here.
My bets for this game:
Khachanov over 9,5 games @ 1,90
Khachanov AH +1,5 sets @ 2,15
Nadal to win 2-1 @ 3,74
