Recap of Yesterday’s Tennis DFS Picks
Sofia Kenin ($9,800)
Opponent: Jacqueline Cristian
Odds to win: -500
With only eight matches, any of the favorites above $9,600 (Elina Svitolina) are more than okay, but Sofia Kenin is the favorite of the bunch. She double faults the least as well which is a huge decider in my eyes. Jacqueline Cristian has been playing great at the ITF level, losing just one of her last 12. That run should come to an end as Kenin is miles above her level. Both players play well on indoor surfaces, but it’s Kenin who should dictate each point and therefore cruise to a straight set win.

Lauren Davis ($8,600)
Opponent: Arantxa Rus
Odds to win: -200
Lauren Davis faces Arantxa Rus who much prefers the confines of an indoor hardcourt to an outdoor one. The humid conditions in Monterrey won’t help Rus’ case against Davis who’s a great mover. Slightly underpriced, Davis will likely be very popular, but for good reason. Rus doesn’t bring much to the table when up against a superior mover.
Highly Owned Fade: Kristina Mladenovic ($8,400)
Opponent: Anna-Lena Friedsam
Odds to win: -165
Kristina Mladenovic struggled against fellow Frenchman Chloe Paquet, serving up 15 double faults (!). Mladenovic has had a rough run at it of late and will be hoping to make a deep run here in her home country of France. She’s up against Anna-Lena Friedsam, who really enjoys indoor hard-courts thanks to her pure striking of the ball and ability of ripping forehands. That’s how Paquet was able to take a convincing first set off Mladenovic before she couldn’t maintain the level. I’m hopeful Friedsam is able to maintain the level for a little longer, and would be surprised if Mladenovic wins this in straight sets.
Given she’s right in the middle tier of the pool at $8,400, she should be highly owned on a short slate. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense since she double faults so often and really isn’t playing too convincing at the moment.
