The Line: Garcia +133 / Yastremska -147 -- Over/Under:
Ukrainian tennis player, Dayana Yastremska has made the final of the 2019 WTA Internationaux de Strasbourg in France. Dayana Yastremska will compete against Caroline Garcia from France in the final.
Dayana Yastremska looked very dominant in the previous round as she defeated Aryna Sabalenka in straight sets. During the win, Yastremska served exceptionally well. Dayana Yastremska won 64% of her service points which allowed her to win 90% of her service games. Dayana Yastremska also won 3 break points to ensure victory. This is Dayana Yastremska third WTA final. Yastremska is 2-0 when competing for the title so she should enter this match with some confidence.
On the other side of the coin, Caroline Garcia also won her previous match in straight sets. It was a simple win for Garcia as she won 100% of her service games and 2 return games to secure the result. The serving was particularly impressive as Garcia hit 10 aces and had a first serve percentage of 80%. Caroline Garcia will enter this match with lots of confidence as she is playing in her home country and will have the crowd on her side. Furthermore, Garcia will also be able to draw from her past as she has a strong record at this venue. Garcia won the WTA Internationaux de Strasbourg title in 2016.
This will be the first time that Caroline Garcia and Dayana Yastremska will be playing each other at a WTA event.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Caroline Garcia to win this match and her second Internationaux de Strasbourg title. Garcia is the stronger player and she has greater experience than her opponent. Garcia has a good record at this venue and is playing at home so I see her being too strong for her opponent in this match.
