CiCi Bellis (11/10) Elise Mertens (6/7) See the Latest Odds
The Dubai Tennis Championship is running and in the round of 32 Belgian superstar, Elise Mertens is in action. She will be taking on American teenager CiCi Bellis in the next round of games. Both players will be desperate to win this game and as a result, we should be able to witness a good game of tennis.
CiCi Bellis is a very young player and she will hope that a win here will boost her career greatly. At just 18, the American has a lot of tennis waiting for her in the future and this game will be more about what she can learn from it rather than if she can win. That being said, she has already won a title and had a deep run in her previous tournament where she lost to world number 2 Simona Halep.

On the side of the court, Elise Mertens will hope that she can continue her good run of form. The Belgian had a strong Australian Open campaign and now she will hope that she can win some WTA tournaments. Mertens is also a very young player but she has played for enough time to understand how to win tennis game and I think that will be shown in this game. I expect her to win this game.
As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good enough price to bet on the outright result and that is the option which I am going to suggest. In addition to that, I am also a fan of the over 2.5 sets bet since I expect Bellis to be good enough to win a set.
