Ashleigh Barty does not want her party to end in the semifinals. She’s finally reached a round in a Grand Slam she’s never been to before, and she has no plans of stopping there, as the Australian looks to punch a ticket to the 2019 French Open women’s singles finals when she takes on Amanda Anisimova. Anisimova is not going to be an easy opponent, as evidenced by the fact that she just made sure there will be a new women’s singles champ this year. Going into the party, the sportsbook favors Barty with -210 odds to make it through to the Finals, while Anisimova is priced at +165.
Betting Preview for the French Open Women’s Semifinals Round Featuring Ashleigh Barty vs Amanda Anisimova on June 7, 2019
Where: Stade Roland Garros, Paris, France
When: Friday, June 7, 2019, 4:00 AM ET
Betting on the Ashleigh Barty (-210)
Barty maybe small, but he’s got a heart larger than his 5-5 frame. The Australian barged into the semifinals of the 2019 French Open after stopping Madison Keys in her tracks, beating the American in the quarters, 6-3, 7-5. Barty placed 60 percent of her first serves in against Keys and scored 80 percent of his first serve points. In Barty, Anisimova is going to face an aggressive and mean little machine who will relentlessly attack the net. Against Keys, Barty went 11-for-12 on net points won. She allowed just one break point chance for Keys and broke Keys three out of five times. Barty has never reached a semifinals round of a Grand Slam event until this French Open, so expect her to give it all out. She reached the quarters of the Australian Open earlier this year.
Betting on the Amanda Anisimova (+165)
Whereas Barty is of diminutive size, the most noticeable superficial aspect of Anisimova is her age. At only 17, she lacks the experience that Barty has. That being said, she didn’t seem to be bothered by her lack of experience on such a grand stage of tennis, when she shocked the field and took down the then-defending French Open women’ singles champion Simona Halep. Anisimova beat Halep in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4, in a match that saw her put 73 percent of her serves in and won 64 points of her first serve points. The win over Halep must have given Anisimova a huge shot of confidence. She definitely believes she can win it all after beating last year’s champion, so her mindset is that she’s very much capable of defeating someone like Barty, who has never a Grand Slam in her career, thus far. Anisimova has one title on the season, which came from her win at the Claro Open Colsanitas in Bogota – a clay court tournament.
Barty makes it to the finals with a three-set win.
