Match Predict – Handicap (+3) for Badosa
Samsonova had a successful tournament in Abu Dhabi. However, overall on the season, Ludmilla has been unstable and has regularly failed in many starts. Badosa returned to the tour after an injury, had a good fight last week against the well-formed Haddad Maia. We believe that the bookmakers are underestimating the Spanish tennis player in the upcoming match, which is worth taking advantage of when choosing a bet on the match.

In their last head-to-head encounter, three sets were needed to determine the winner, with two of them being tie-breaks. We expect today’s encounter to be a long one.
Preliminary review and pre-match prediction for Paula Badosa vs Ludmilla Samsonova
Paula has not had much luck so far this year. In mid-January, she had to miss the Australian Open due to injury.
In early February, the Spaniard could not perform in Abu Dhabi. This time the reason was a virus.
Earlier this week, Badosa failed to make a single round in Doha, promptly losing to Beatriz Haddad Maia of Brazil (6-7, 3-6).
Badoda’s only success so far in the new season has been reaching the semi-finals of the Adelaide tournament. It was there that she got injured and couldn’t make it to the 1/2 match against Daria Kasatkina and didn’t go to Melbourne.
Paula Badosa has lost four in a row at the WTA 1000 tournament level.
Ludmilla, meanwhile, was not happy at Doha either. In her first match, the Russian was defeated by Sofia Kenin (3-6, 1-6).
However, it was not a great surprise. Apparently, Samsonova just didn’t have time to recover after the Abu Dhabi tournament where she managed to reach the final.
In the decisive match, Ludmilla was defeated by Belinda Benic (6-1, 6-7, 4-6).
On the tie-break of the second set, Samsonova dropped three match points. After that, of course, it is difficult to come to one’s senses.
In eight of Ludmilla Samsonova’s last ten matches against top-20 tennis players, more than 20 games have been played.
