2pm: Swiatek v Kasatkina – 6-2 or 6-3 Any Player in Set 1

TV: Eurosport 1

World number one Iga Swiatek has been in imperious form as she took her unbeaten run to 33 matches with victory over Jessica Pegula in the quarter final. Daria Kasatkina has been impressive too, and has yet to drop a set in the tournament but she will face a player at the top of her game here.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

It will likely prove a bridge too far for Kasatkina to try overcome Swiatek in current form. This is a tricky one to find value but I have gone with the Set 1 Correct Score Groups Any Player market. 6-2 or 6-3 to be the first set score which looks a fair price here as Swiatek is likely to put her stamp on the match early and prevent Kasatkina getting into a rhythm.

4pm: Trevisan v Gauff – Gauff wins and both players win a set, Over 20.5 Total Games

TV: Eurosport 1

Both Martina Trevisan and Coco Gauff have been in impressive form in their respective routes to the last four. Gauff is yet to drop a set to date, and Trevisan only dropping one so far in her quarter final battle with Leylah Fernadez.

I expect a tight encounter and Trevisan should be able to do enough to get a set on the board. Trevisan defeated Gauff in Roland Garros in 2020 so will be hoping to repeat the trick here but will likely fall short after a gallant effort. Both players to win a set, before Gauff prevails in the deciding set looks value. Over 20.5 games is also of interest for the reasons already mentioned.
