Claire the pick in California today…

We’re getting back into the Match Winner betting today, with a straight-up selection for a women’s match taking place in Newport Beach, California.

Claire Liu v Coco Vandeweghe

This American clash sees two former Junior Grand Slam winners face off for the second time.

Back in 2008, Coco Vandeweghe won the Junior US Open as a teenager. On the Senior tour, Coco became a regular in our Ones to Watch lists for a while. In 2017, the big-serving American reached the semi finals at both the Australian Open and US Open, as well as the quarter finals at Wimbledon.

Injuries struck soon after though, and have plagued Coco ever since. Unfortunately, now age 28, she’s struggled to get the fitness and consistency back in recent years. On the 2020 form, Vandeweghe has lost eight of 12 matches, including two straight-sets defeats in this GST Tours series, with one of them a 6-2, 6-0 clubbing by Liu on 2nd June.

Claire Liu won Wimbledon Juniors in 2017. Now age 20, the Californian looks on course for a rise up the rankings in the years to come, if she can stay fit. Liu has an 11-5 match win-loss record this season, and the younger woman can prove too much for Coco again today.

As a former Top 10 player, I think Vandeweghe’s name still has a bit of an influence on her match prices. Liu is the pick at a solid 8/11.

We’ve got a busy week lined up next week, with both the men’s Battle of the Brits event and women’s Credit One Bank Invitational tournament starting from Tuesday. Lots to look forward to, and I’ll be continuing to monitor all the daily prices and schedules.

Enjoy the tennis,

Best wishes,
