Palermo Ladies Open 2020 Betting Tips, Predictions, Preview & Live Streaming


The 2020 WTA Palermo Ladies Open gets underway today with Petra Martic and Marketa Vondrousova the top two seeds and tournament favourites. 

The tournament is played on outdoor clay courts and will be keenly contested as players return after the WTA tour was suspended.

The only previous winner of the Palermo Ladies Open in the field is Sara Errani but her form was poor before the break. Errani won in 2008 and 2012 and was runner-up in 2009 and 2013, can she replicate that form at 50/1?

The Czech Republic player reached the Adelaide International quarter-finals before first round defeats at the Australian Open and St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy.

Dayana Yastremska


Dayana Yastremska is the seventh seed and ranked world No. 25. She has an 8-5 win-loss record in 2020.

Yastremska reached the Australian Open second round before a first round defeat at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships and third round exit at the Qatar Total Open.

Maria Sakkari


Maria Sakkari is the third seed and ranked world No. 20. She has a 9-6 win-loss record in 2020.

Sakkari had tough draws in early exits at the Brisbane International and Adelaide International. The Greek player reached the Australian Open round of 16 and St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy semi-finals. 

She was knocked out in the first round at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships and Qatar Total Open round of 16, both times to world No. 9 Aryna Sabalenka.

Elise Mertens


Elise Mertens is the fifth seed and ranked world No. 23. She has an 11-5 win-loss record in 2020.

The Belgian reached the Shenzhen Open and Hobart International quarter-finals before losing to Simona Halep in the Australian Open round of 16.

Anett Kontaveit

The Estonian suffered early exits at the Brisbane International and Adelaide International before losing to Simona Halep in the Australian Open quarter-finals.

Kontaveit was knocked out by Petra Martic in straight sets in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships quarter-finals before a second round defeat at the Qatar Total Open.

Donna Vekic

The Croatian was knocked out in the first round at the Brisbane International before third round exits at the Adelaide International and Australian Open.

Ekaterina Alexandrova

The Russian won the Shenzhen Open in January before a third round exit at the Australian Open. Alexandrova reached the St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy semi-finals before a first round defeat at the Qatar Total Open.

Sara Errani


Sara Errani is currently ranked world No. 169 with a 5-7 win-loss record in 2020. The former world No. 5 has won this tournament twice and been a beaten finalist on two occasions.

The 33-year-old failing a doping test in February 2017 and has achieved little on the WTA Tour since 2019. The Italian failed to qualify for the ASB Classic and Australian Open in 2020.

Her form doesn't suggest she will be a threat in Palermo, but with months to prepare and the rest of the field underdone, can she spring a massive surprise at long odds?

Verdict

This will be the first clay court tournament for these players in 2020. Petra Martic and Marketa Vondrousova did little at the beginning of the year to justify favouritism in Palermo.

This tournament is very unpredictable but Ekaterina Alexandrova was in fine form before the WTA Tour was suspended. Kristyna Pliskova looked strong beating Maria Sakkari in the first round and two-time winner Sara Errani is on my betslip at long odds.

Value Bet: Ekaterina Alexandrova WTA Palermo Winner @+900 at BetMGM - 3 Units
Mega Bet: Kristyna Pliskova WTA Palermo Winner @+2800 at bet365 Sport NJ - 1 Unit
Mega Bet: Sara Errani WTA Palermo Winner @+2200 at Borgata Sports - 1 Unit
