I will tip on tennis today and I will start with Makarova/Vesnina against Kichenok/Rodionova. There's big difference between these two couples especially in term of experience.
Makarova/Vesnina defeated in straight sets Andreescu B. V./Branstine C. and Kichenok/Melicar. They are in amazing form even if this is only the first tournament after Wimbledon. Also, they were perfect even in Wimbledon as they won losing only a set. They won 8 of the last 9 matches (the only loss came for retirement) and they dropped only a set in these matches. They have a big chance to reach another final against two very weak opponents and they will not lose this one. Considering how they are playing, it's even hard to imagine them losing a set.
There's not a lot to say about Kichenov/Rodionova...they won against Aoyama S./Jurak D. in 3 sets and against Atawo R./Gavrilova D. in straight sets. Odds for them to win in those matches were very balances so they were a 50-50 match. They were lucky as Mirza/Peng retired before playing in the last round and so they reached semifinals. Kichenov/Rodionova are very lucky to stay here...they played decent in the first two matches but story will change against the most in form players after Wimbledon.
It's clear that Makarova/Vesnina are in amazing form and they have much more experience. They will win this one easily in straight sets. Odds for this bet should ba around 1,35 in my opinion. This is my bet of the day.
