WTA Rome - keep Teichmann onside at 33/1...

Tuesday 10th May 2022

In Sunday night's Outright Winner preview, I said we'd reassess JIL BELEN TEICHMANN ahead of a potential 2nd round clash with Karolina Pliskova.

We backed Teichmann at 28/1 during the Mutua Madrid Open last week, where she went on to reach the semi finals. Having won her 1st round match here at the WTA Rome event in straight sets on Tuesday - albeit against an ailing home player in Jasmine Paolini - Jil looks to be in fine fettle once again...

We're already on the out-of-form Pliskova at 50/1 here. The thinking being that those odds are going to look pretty darn big if Karolina can kick back into gear and continue her Rome affair of the last three years - in which she's reached the final each time.

Right now though, we don't want to miss another big run from the younger player, especially having come close with Jil last time out. Pliskova had a Bye in the 1st round, so we don't know what her match sharpness will be like in Wednesday's match. But what we do know is that 24-year-old Teichmann is looking confident right now, and has beaten the 30-year-old Czech before. In fact, their only previous meeting on the tour also came at a WTA 1000 event like this one; the semi finals of Cincinnati 2021, where the Swiss player reached a maiden 1000-grade final.

The biggest incentive for backing both players here though is the draw, as I reckon the winner of this 2nd round encounter has more than a puncher's chance of being the player that comes through this side of the Rome draw, at a big price.

We're already on Pliskova at 50/1 (and Bet365 have since pushed her out to 80/1). Teichmann at 40/1 or 33/1 is one to add to the book before play starts in Rome on Wednesday morning.

In the Match Winner betting, the bookmakers have Teichmann as the 4/7 (1.57) favourite, with Pliskova the underdog at 13/8 (2.63).
