Expert Betting Tips
Caroline is going to be the favorite here and for the obvious reason, she is among the top players and does well against players ranked lower than 50. Nuria Parizzas-Diaz can be a tough challenge but she has shown big vulnerabilities in the first round itself. That’s why I back Caroline to win this in two sets.
