Prediction and odds for WTA Quebec 2015

After the US Open from New York, the big names in women`s professional circuit will take a well-earned break before the Asian journey. However, there is one last stop on the North American continent, at the Challenge Bell in Quebec. It`s the last competition of this level which still carries inside on rug.

Although currently there are no big names on board this year, in the past this competition was won by sportive players like Maria Sharapova, Lindsay Davenport, Marion Bartoli and Lucie Safarova. This year the total price money is 250 000$, with 43 000$ for the winner. Also the first place will receive 280 WTA points.

 

Last year the Croatian Mirjana Lucic-Baroni won after a final with Venus William (6:4.6:3). Among the tennis players with good results in the past, who will start also this week are the quarter finalists Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka, the Bulgarian Sesil Karatancheva, the German Tatjana Maria or the American quarter finalist Shelby Rogers. Among the names that will start for the first time at Quebec  is the world rank number 19 WTA Madison Keys, who is seen as the main favorite , while Mirjana Lucic-Baroni, the former champion at single and double, favorite number two, is 48 in the WTA world ranking. To give you an idea of the value of this tournament , the Belgian player An-Sophie Mestach, seeded last, is only ranked 102.

 

According to the odds provided by Unibet, Madison Keys starts at Quebec as the main favorite to win , being 2.50,  followed by the Mirjana Lucic with 8.00. Keys is a young player , only 20 years old , with only one WTA title so far. She is very unpredictable on the field, especially because she played few matches on indoor carpet. My recommendation for this tournament, taking into account what I saw at US Open, is the Czech player Lucie Hradecka, favorite number 4. It has over 30 years experience, played a final and a quarter-final at Quebec in the last three years and has an opening quite affordable.
