Who Breaks the Tie?
Shelby Rogers and Daria Kasatkina will meet in the 2022 Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic Finals on Sunday evening.
These women are no strangers to one another. They had an arduous road to get here, so let’s discuss each and look at the tennis odds to decide where we should be betting.
Shelby Rogers Looking for Gold
American Shelby Rogers has been doing extremely well throughout her run at the 2022 Silicon Valley Classic Tournament. She defeated Bianca Andreescu, first-seeded Maria Sakkari, Amanda Anisimova, and Veronica Kudermetova. The most astonishing thing has been the fact she has not dropped a set.
She is currently the 45th-ranked women’s singles tennis player in the world and has a 12-15 record in 2022. She needs a lot of things to go in her favor in the finals if she wants to end up with a trophy.
Daria Kasatkina Looking to Break the Top 10
Daria Kasatkina had a little bit of a tougher road to this point as she defeated Elena Rynakina, Taylor Townsend, fourth-seeded Aryna Sabalenka, and second-seeded Paula Badosa.
The Russian has been doing incredibly well and defeated Badosa in straight sets in the semifinals.
Kasatkina is currently the 12th-ranked women’s tennis player, according to the WTA. She is 27-14 this season.
Rogers vs Kasatkina Head-to-Head

Rogers vs Kasatkina Prediction
Kasatkina dominated in the French Open and should do just that again.
Kasatkina should control the match, so it is no surprise that the BetUs Sportsbook has her as the favorite. This will be her second consecutive finals appearance in the Silicon Valley Classic.
This is not to discredit what Rogers has done throughout this tournament. Rogers has been winning 107 of her 136 points (78.7%) on her first serve and looks to be aggressive.
Kasatkina has been doing extremely well at absorbing punishment and essentially being a counterpuncher. This should be a fun matchup between talented players, but Kasatkina will end up winning the 2022 Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic 2022 Finals in San Jose, California.
If you are going to bet online, take Kasatkina on the moneyline.
