|Date & Time||Saturday July 21, 2018, 12:00 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Pertra Martic +137/ Mihaela Buzărnescu -175 Over/Under:
The 2nd seed, Mihaela Buzărnescu, and the 4th seed, Petra Martić, at the Bucharest Open have both made it to the semifinals of the competition. Both players have had a very strong tournament and will look to make it to the final where they can challenge for the title. This is a big opportunity for both players and neither will take this game for granted. This should mean that we get a great tennis match.
Petra Martić is the 34th best female tennis players in the world and with that ranking, she would be disappointed by the fact that she was eliminated in the opening round at Wimbledon a few weeks ago. This tournament has been a chance for the Croatian to rectify that and she has done it well. The Croatian has been very strong in this event and she has never looked like she was out of control in a match. This is a strong asset to have and she will look to control this match as well. This will be the toughest opponent Petra Martić has faced all tournament and it will be interesting to see how she handles the challenge.
Looking at the other player, Mihaela Buzărnescu will be determined to win this tournament. Mihaela Buzărnescu is from Bucharest so this tournament is at her hometown. She has been a fan favorite all throughout the event and I am expecting another big turnout for this event. The Romanian has looked very dominant this tournament as she has won all her games in straight sets. This will be the first time she is facing a seeded player and she will need to play well if she wants to win.
All in all, I am expecting Mihaela Buzărnescu to win this match. The Romanian is playing good tennis and the home crowd should give her an added boost. While Martic has done well, I only see one result and that is a Mihaela Buzărnescu win.
