World number four Paula Badosa reached the semi-final of the Silicon Valley Classic two weeks ago with a stunning result over Coco Gauff before defeat to eventual champion Daria Kasatkina. However, the 24-year-old was forced to retire from her opening Canada Masters match against Yulia Putintseva last week and she has been handed a tough first opponent again this week in Ajla Tomljanovic. 29-year-old Tomljanovic’s current world ranking of 63rd is a red herring as she reached the quarter-finals of Wimbledon last month, where ranking points were controversially removed by the WTA tour, where she came as close as anyone to beating the eventual champion Elena Rybakina in a three-set defeat. The Aussie beat in-form Veronika Kudermetova last week in Toronto before drawing the short straw in a comprehensive defeat to Iga Swiatek but the upset is on here if she can find her best tennis.
Badosa has beaten Tomljanovic in straight sets twice this season, back when she was flying in January, but this could come a lot closer. The suitably cautious move is taking Badosa to win at least a set but the shrewd pick looks to be backing Tomljanovic to win at least a set instead.
