Swiatek Eyes Consecutive WTA Titles in Rome

After Iga Swiatek cashed for bettors in Madrid last week, we see no reason to jump off her back in Rome at the Internazionale BNL d’Italia.

The Polish champion headlines tennis betting markets against 49 of the world’s top 50 tennis players.

It’s a hot tournament on the clay, and as the French Open gets closer, it couldn’t be more important to win.

Swiatek Betting Choice in Rome and Paris

Swiatek had to dig deep in Madrid, but she got the job done for bettors.

The world No. 1 had to battle hard in the final against Aryna Sabalenka, winning in a tiebreak in the final set.

“A lot of emotions. But for sure I’m really proud of myself and really happy, because when you have matches like that and when you actually have to fight through some stuff, it makes it even better. So I’m really proud of myself,” said Swiatek.

It was another close loss for Sabalenka, who continues to struggle winning WTA 1000 events. However, it’s not so hard for tournament favorite Swiatek (+140).

She dominates the clay season, and the four-time Grand Slam winner is the current favorite to win the French Open.

If she’s not fatigued from winning the final, Swiatek is the player to beat in Rome. She got past Madison Keys in the semifinals by dropping just four games, so she is miles above the second-tier players.

Betting Value for Defending Champ Rybakina

Being the defending champion comes with a lot of respect, and Elena Rybakina (+600) should be taken seriously.

The 2023 champion lost in the semifinals in Madrid to Sabalenka, but it was a close match. She won the first set 6-1 before losing the next two 7-5, 7-6.

She couid have been gutted to lose in such a heartbreaking fashion, but the 24-year-old Russian has a short memory.

Sabalenka had this to say about Rybakina.

“The thing about us is we are both aggressive players,” Sabalenka said. “When I was winning, I was focusing on myself and I was staying really aggressive on those key moments. When she was winning, she was more aggressive than me.”

We’re not leaving Rybakina (+600) off our tennis picks. She’s a world-class player, and her form doesn’t slip on clay surfaces.

Sabalenka Serves Up Betting Conundrum

Sabalenka won the Australian Open in January, but she struggles to win WTA events.

She is a known choker, but we’re hoping she settles down and starts focusing on her serving efficiency.

Sabakenka has one of the most powerful serves on the WTA Tour, but she relies on it too heavily. Once she gets into a rally, especially against quick players like Swiatek, she struggles.

Losing in the final last week should spur her on, and she will be heavily backed with betting markets at +500.

It’s all about attitude for Sabalenka and she’s too good to leave out.

Can Gauff Capitalize on Rome Tennis Odds?

Coco Gauff is the third seed, but after being ousted in the Round of 16 last week, she needs to bounce back.

The American is now a 20-year-old, and that could see her start winning more consistently on the tour.

We’re surprised she’s still the third seed, especially having Rybakina ranked fourth. However, Gauff has ability and she didn’t win the 2023 US Open on chance.

The Internazionale BNL d’Italia is up for grabs, and we’re including Gauff (+1600) at the current value tennis odds.
