The Line: -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
French superstar Kristina Mladenovic and her Hungarian partner, Timea Babos, are the top seed for the women’s doubles at Wimbledon. The pair will begin their tournament against the Japanese pair of Miyu Kato and Eri Hozumi. This should be a great opening round game at Wimbledon.
Miyu Kato and Eri Hozumi are both very young players. The pair has not been playing for long but they will feel that they can compete against the best players. Eri Hozumi made the final of the French Open a few weeks ago and although it was with a different partner, it showed that she is a terrific doubles player. It is also important to note that Eri Hozumi and her partner eliminated Kristina Mladenovic and Timea Babos in the French Open. Miya Kato has also done well in double as she reached the finals of the Australian Open in 2017. As far as individual skill is concerned, both players a sufficient. The only issue might be the chemistry between the players since they have not played together much.

On the other side of the court, Kristina Mladenovic and Timea Babos will want revenge for their elimination in Wimbledon and by beating Eri Hozumi in the first round will be the perfect reply. There is a reason why Kristina Mladenovic and Timea Babos are the top seeds and when they play there is great chemistry and tons of skill. 2018 has been a decent year for the pair as they won the Australian Open and also many WTA tournaments. The pair recently won WTA Birmingham and that victory showed that both players are great on grass courts.
All in all, I am going to predict that Kristina Mladenovic and Timea Babos wins this match. The top seeds are exceptionally good and they will be determined to do well in this tournament. We are getting a good price to wager on Kristina Mladenovic and Timea Babos to win so that is the bet which I am going to suggest that we make.
