Today bet of the day featuring Table Tennis


For the record, Ons Jabeur won 73% of her grass matches. Her YTD is a solid 25/9, and she starts this tournament on a career-high ranking of 4.

On her way to the quarter-final of last year’s Wimbledon, Jabeur beat Garbine Muguruza and Iga Swiatek. Two weeks earlier, the Tunisian player won the tournament in Birmingham. 

With regards to the current season, Jabeur won this year’s Madrid and made finals in Rome and Charleston. However, she lost her first match in the French Open to Magda Linette, and she’s not the most consistent of players.

In fact, for an older player with such a lofty ranking, the 27-year-old was only able to win $4.2M in prize money. To put that into perspective, Muguruza ($24 million) and Halep ($38M) can 6 and 9 fold that sum! 

Meanwhile, If Karolina Muchova hadn’t suffered from injuries she would have been firmly established in the top 10.

At last year’s London, Muchova made it to the quarter-final by beating Zhang, Giorgi, Panlyuchenkova, and Badosa Gibert. Also, in 2019, she made the same stage by taking out Krunic, Brengle, Pliskova, and Kontaveit. Suffice to say, the 25-year-old is proven on grass.

While Karolina hasn’t played much this season, she’s beaten the useful Sakkari and Fernandez. Only injury stopped her at the French Open, but in her own words, she’s over it.

In summary, on paper, this has the potential to be a cracking match. Nevertheless, we like Muchova, and the bookmakers are giving us +3.5. That is a good starting number on a fast surface such as grass!


Odds: 1.91
