The number 6 seeds in the women’s doubles tournament are Gabriela Dabrowski from Canada and Xu Yifan from China. This dynamic duo has been very impressive for a long time and have made it to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon. This is where the competition gets serious. They will be taking on the team comprised of Bethanie Mattek-Sands from the United States and Lucie Safarova from the Czech Republic. Both pairs are comprised of exceptional players so we should be treated to a great tennis match.
Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova have caused some major upsets as they managed to eliminate the number 16 seeds and the number 2 seeds. This is very impressive considering that Lucie Safarova is predominantly a singles player and this is the first major tournament that these two have teamed up. Much of the success of Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova has been due to the great individual skills that the two players possess. This is a massive asset and it will ensure that the number 6 seeds will have a challenge in this match.

In comparison, Gabriela Dabrowski and Xu Yifan are not as accomplished individually as Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova. That being said, Gabriela Dabrowski and Xu Yifan have been playing together for a long time and the pair have great chemistry and understanding. As a team, these two have had many deep runs in tournaments and they have proved many times that they a top level team. This teamwork and chemistry will need to continue in this match since they are lacking in skill when compared to their opponents.
This should be an exceptional tennis match between two very good teams. It is not easy to predict a winner but I am going to side with Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova. This pair has done exceptionally well and I fancy them to ride their form and get another win. We are getting a good enough price to bet on them to win so that is the wager which I am going to suggest.
